Nantes, the former capital of Brittany, is a French city at the Loire.
The Bretons came from the British Isles, presumably in the 5th and 6th century. They founded a kingdom which was later destroyed by Charlemagne. The result was a number of duchies. The Duchy of Brittany kept its independence up to the 15th century. Anne of Brittany (1477 - 1514) was born in Nantes and shaped the history of this region as a new future Queen of France.
The port of Nantes became the most important port in France, last but not least through the flourishing slave trade. The War in the Vendée, which was tantamount to suicide, altered the national consciousness of the Breton’s sustainable. After the second world war, Nantes was declared the capital of the Pays de la Loire region and Loire-Atlantique department.
Today the port has lost his meaning. Jules Verne was born here and has further bequeathed his imagination to the next generations which is still highly influential on artistic creativity of this city.
We start a first exploration of the old town near the tourist office in front of the Castle of the Dukes of Brittany.
The Rue du Chateau and the Rue de la Juiverie are characterized by numerous cafés and brasseries. The half-timbered buildings give the streets a medieval flair. At the Place du Pilori we stop for a small break. The lady in the cafe Le Pilori told that this is one of the oldest cafes of the city and draws our attention to one of the art works, which can be discovered on the facades of the house walls and squares along a green line drawn through the city. The facade of the cafe is decorated with a medieval disgrace board.
A rain shower stopped our stroll and we enjoyed on the Place du Change a coffee under an umbrella of a café. From the Place de l'Ecluse the Tour Bretagne (Brittany Tour) stabs us in eye; it is the tallest building in the city.
Past the City Hall, we come to Nantes Cathedral where the parents of Anne of Brittany are buried in an ornate grave. Beside the cathedral you can still see the various street levels of the city over the ages.
Via the Course Saint Pierre we go back to the Castle and take a look at the LU Tower. It is the emblem of the former biscuit factory Lefèvre-Utile, better known as LU.
Our morning walk ends at the statue of Anne of Brittany.

Nantes, die ehemalige Hauptstadt der Bretagne, ist eine französische Großstadt an der Loire.
Vermutlich kamen im 5. und 6. Jahrhundert die Bretonen von den Britischen Inseln, was später zur Gründung eines Königreichs führte. Erst Karl der Große zerschlug es. Die Folge waren eine Reihe von Herzogtümer. Das Herzogtum Bretagne behielt bis in das 15. Jahrhundert seine Selbständigkeit. Anne von Bretagne (1477 – 1514) wurde hier geboren und gestaltete die Geschichte dieser Region als spätere französische Königin neu.
Durch schwunghaften Sklavenhandel stieg der Hafen von Nantes zum bedeutendsten Hafen Frankreichs auf. Der Vendée Aufstand, der einem Suizid gleichkam, veränderte das bretonische Nationalbewusstsein nachhaltig. Nach dem 2. Weltkrieg wurde Nantes zur Hauptstadt der Region Pays de la Loire und des Départements Loire-Atlantique erklärt.
Der Hafen hat seine Bedeutung verloren. Jules Verne wurde hier geboren und hat seine Phantasie an folgende Generationen weitervererbt und prägt auch heute noch das künstlerische Schaffen dieser Stadt.
Eine erste Erkundung der Altstadt beginnen wir nahe dem Tourismus Büro beim Château des Ducs de Bretagne.
Die Rue du Château und die Rue de la Juiverie sind durch zahlreiche Cafés und Brasserien geprägt. Die Fachwerkgebäude verleihen ihnen ein mittelalterliches Flair. Am Place du Pilori legen wir eine kleine Pause ein. Die Besitzerin des Cafes Le Pilori erzählt, dass es sich hierbei um eines der ältesten Cafes der Stadt handelt und macht uns auf einige der Kunstwerke aufmerksam, die es an den Fassaden der Hauswände und auf Plätzen entlang der grünen Linie zu entdecken gibt. Die Fassade des Cafés schmückt ein mittelalterliches Schandbrett.
Bedauerlicherweise ereilt uns ein Regenschauer, doch am Place du Change finden wir rasch Schutz unter einem Schirm eines Cafés. Vom Place de l'Ecluse sticht uns der Tour de Bretagne ins Auge, das höchste Gebäude der Stadt.
Vorbei am Rathaus kommen wir zur Kathedrale Saint-Pierre-et-Saint-Paul in der die Eltern von Anne de Bretagne in einem kunstvollem Grab bestattet sind.
Über den Course Saint Pierre erreichen wir wieder das Château und werfen einen Blick auf den La Tour Lu. Er ist das Wahrzeichen der früheren Keksfabrik Lefèvre-Utile, besser bekannt unter der Abkürzung LU.
Letzte Station ist eine Statue von Anne de Bretagne und wir gedenken ihrer Wirkensweise.
