However, Pont-Audemer is not stuck in the past and visitors are surprised at the number of contemporary buildings, all meeting sustainable development requirements, which blend in perfectly with the historic ones : Theatre de l’Eclat, Musée Canel, médiathèque (library), Cartonnerie (business development premises)…
Pont-Audemer is a paradise for visitors with a sweet tooth ! Specialities include Mirlitons, created in honour of the famous pâtissier Gaston Lenôtre, Pavé chocolates and ‘tarte aux pommes’ (Normandy apple tart) !
Don’t hesitate to visit Manneville sur Risle or Saint Germain Village to enjoy magnificent views of the area !
The Pont-Audemer area stretches over a leafy, unspoilt valley with nature trails to help the young, and not so young, to explore the rich environment. Who can be first to spot tadpoles in a pond, a tree which has been pollarded, a chestnut tree or a silver birch... Great fun for all the family ! Other circular trails go past local heritage curiosities, great for impromptu walks !
In fine weather, April – October in Normandy – you can also explore the countryside by kayak ! Paddle down the tranquil River Risle, or for the more adventurous, have a try at stand-up paddle boarding with an experienced monitor !
Everything appears different at night, so in summer Pont-Audemer runs night time tours to discover the town from a new perspective…
