Nantes truly creative and attractive

Over the last thirty years Nantes has become one of the most dynamic and inventive city in France. An impressive array of cultural events are rolled out over the year, some of which stretch out across the globe: The ‘musical madness’ of the ”Folle Journée“ classical musical festival, the giants created by the street theatre company ”Royal de Luxe“, Estuaire (permanent open-air collection), or the ”Machines de l'Ile“ mechanical animals, and don't miss the summer event Le Voyage à Nantes !

Green Capital

In 2013 Nantes became the first French town to be awarded the title of European Green Capital. This European award is the recognition of 20 years of political will that encompasses urban development and mobility (tramway, busway, etc.), fighting against global warming and preserving the natural heritage around the Loire estuary.


Located at the crossroads of two international stars of bike travel beloved by the public – “La Vélodyssée” (EuroVelo 1) and “La Loire à Vélo” (EuroVelo 6) – and with its 586 km (364 mi.) of bike paths and more than 2,900 parking spots and 7,000 bike racks, Nantes and its surrounding region love cycling and have never stopped promoting cycling. Whether it’s for everyday travel or for just getting around town.

Machines de l’Ile

The Machines de l’Ile is an artistic, touristic and cultural site in Nantes since 2007. Three major artworks, the Great Elephant (2007), the Merry Go Round of the Marine Worlds (2012), and the next project of the Heron Tree symbolise doors to the world of dreams and magical journeys. A mixture between the invented worlds of Jules Verne and the mechanical universe of Leonardo da Vinci.

Memorial to the abolition of slavery

Nantes was the capital of the slave trade in France: it organised 43% of the French slave trade shipments in the XVIII century.
