Tips for Getting Along with Locals in Rennes

Rennes enjoys an oceanic climate which results in warm summers and mild winters. From June to August you can expect average temperatures of around 24°C, however unexpected heat waves can often see temperatures soar to 39°C. The city has one of the fastest growing populations in France, and its large student population means that most of the local Rennais will speak English. Many of the popular attractions are within walking distance of the city center, however you can find plenty of bicycle rental kiosks, which offers a scenic and efficient way of getting around. If you visit between July and August then you will find that things are noticeably quieter as the large student population return home or visit the coast. The students who stay behind often arrange the Quartiers d'été festival in July, which involves lots of cinema, music, and art performances.
