Consider the “Place de la Mairie” as a very nice place in the heart of the city, the Place de la Mairie is also one of the major gathering places and cultural events of Rennes. The place is surrounded by the majestic Opéra de Rennes, the Hôtel de Ville, and the carousselette square are populated, on sunny days you arfe able to enjoy the nice terraces and even chairs when the summer is hot enough. Its beautiful carousel Musical banquet during Mardi Gras, Operation lounge chairs in the city, photography exhibitions, animations during the Telethon, concerts in summer or week of the Fraîch 'attitude, the animations are not lacking on this paved place in the heart of the city . You could sayu a place to be in summer.

Nice Center of Town Spot
Jul 2019 • Solo
Nice place to walk through and just "people watch." During the summer they have events. Not sure if this is year-round, but attended a concert that is part of a series. Nice open space with a merry-go-round. And, in the summer, an ice cream cart!

Concert Under the Stars
Jul 2018 • Solo
I loved visiting Place de la Marie for a live concert. I walked through the space often, so read of the concert days before. I arrived early, so enjoyed the event in the comfort of a provided seat. It was special to sit there and be entertained under a clear sky that slowly darkened. A summer treat I was not used to!

Centre of Rennes
Oct 2017 • Couples
Right in the centre of the city is this Neo-Classical square from which most streets seem to lead off so a good place to start exploring. In the square itself is the main entrance to the impressive Hotel de Ville (town hall) with the beautiful Theatre and it's rotunda facing it. There are plenty of seating areas and cafes but avoid lunchtimes when the students hit the town in search of refreshments!

Lovely square
Apr 2017 • Family
A great place to meet friends or just relax on a sunny day on one of the many benches and enjoy the atmosphere. A busker was performing the day we visited.

Nice spot

Nice place for a walk, take some beautiful pictures, have a snack in one of the many restaurants or coffe shops in the area to continue your visit in the center of the town towards the remains of the old medieval gate- towers and the cute narrow streets and squares with the old wooden houses. Do not miss some of the interesting book stores near this place.

Pleasant to relax
Jul 2016 • Couples
It was very hot the day that we were there and they had set out free deckchairs. No we did not drift off to sleep but it was a pleasant way to watch the people going through the square. On one side of the square is the opera and on the other the town hall.

Spectacular at Night
Jun 2016 • Couples
Just outside and infront of the beautiful train station, you'll notice it first upon going out of the station, especially at night with its hundreds of colorful lights.

Good Site to See
Jun 2016
Adequate in every way. I'm not sure why this would be consider a site to see when anyone can walk by it, observe and evaluate for themselves.

Heart of the City

This is a square right in the centre of the city near the metro stop 'République'. It's very easy to get to by metro, and several bus lines also cross at the bus stop just around the corer.
