Bayeux Intercom - Hiking and Cycling

Hiking or cycling: nice family tours on the territory!

Spring temperatures are back and the plan of gradual deconfinement allows us again to go out… Want to escape? It's time to explore the territory of Bayeux Intercom and enjoy its exceptional heritage! Here are the hiking routes that, from bucolic landscapes to breathtaking panoramas, will not fail to surprise!





By bike?

Port-en-Bessin-Huppain, the site of the German Battery of Longues-sur-Mer, the artificial port of Arromanches, Bayeux and the abbey of Juaye-Mondaye can all be connected by bike while respecting current travel restrictions. The departmental loops N°5 and N°10 offer spectacular views of the coastline and attractive landscapes on the pre-grove going from greenway and small country roads. They are particularly suitable for families who want to pedal safely on easy 20 to 30 km courses.

D-Day Landing Beaches - D-Day Festival

D-Day Festival Normandy 2020 – Program updated everyday !

For the 76th Anniversary of the Allied Landings and the battle of Normandy, the 14th D-Day Festival Normandy invites locals and tourists to celebrate freedom, from May 30th to June 14th, 2020, on the D-Day Beaches area!






⚠️ Due to the global crisis affecting us all, the organization for the 76th is logically impacted. Until the last moment, the continuation of the events will be uncertain.

The D-Day Festival Normandy, a collective concept of communication, is therefore naturally dependent and respectful of the decision of each organizer.

We remain more mobilized than ever. For greater accuracy and efficiency, we made the exceptional choice not to publish a paper program this year

On the program a “cancelled” or “postponed” (for those carried forward in the yea), stamp indicates any changes made

Stay tuned!

Result of the renewed collaboration between the seven tourist offices of the D-Day and the Battle of Normandy Coastal area, this program is coordinated by the tourist office of Bayeux Intercom.

Bayeux - Cancellation

The Medieval Festival is cancelled

In the context of the COVID19 pandemic, the country is facing an unprecedented crisis that nobody knows the outcome of and that forces the city to announce the cancellation of the Médiévales 2020.

The Medieval Celebrations, for the first time in their history, are cancelled. But, already, the elected representatives of the city of Bayeux as well as the entire team of the cultural action department are working on the 35th edition scheduled for July 2021. An anniversary that will be celebrated as it should be, be sure! More than ever, we will find ourselves in the heart of our beautiful city to share this incomparable holiday weekend.
