The Trouville-Deauville railway station

Point of arrival for many residents and tourists, the railway station, designed in an Anglo-Norman style, has been listed since 2010 among the Historical Monuments. The travellers’ hall is painted with frescoes, made in 1932 by Louis Houpin, representing a map of Deauville-Trouville of Normandy.

The Morny pond

Leaving the railway station, cross the road and reach the sea: yachts moored in the Morny pond, the first of the two ports of Deauville, are at the forefront in this Presqu’Île de la Touques department, currently under redevelopment. About 45% of this area will be dedicated to walking and soft traffic, by bike or on foot.

The Morny square

Take Désiré le Hoc street to reach the heart of the local life. The Morny square is a very active place, especially in the market days. Before buying local products, take a look at the statue of the Morny duke, founder of this seaside resort. A commemorative plaque pays tribute to him.

The Yves Saint Laurent square

Take Eugène Colas street and reach this architecturally interesting small square. The casino, built in 1912, is a legendary place. Since its inauguration by Nijinsky and the Ballets Russes, the proscenium theatre hosts the Cultural season of the city and many other events. On the other side, there’s the Normandy hotel.

The Boardwalk

People come from all over the world to walk here. It’s a great opportunity to observe the famous five-colour beach umbrellas, symbol of the city. You can walk along a 2-km beach, following your own rhythm. Go past the “Point de vue”, place hosting expositions and cultural meetings and continue straight ahead to reach the “promenade d’Ornano” before turning to the left towards the “Heart garden” and hang a padlock as a symbol of your love…sport lovers can take the adjacent fitness trail.

The Strassburger Villa

Leave the seaside and take Eugène Cornuché boulevard. Walk along the Royal Barrière Hotel, inaugurated in 1913, taking Jacques Le Marois street. Look around and appreciate the various architectural style of the villas. At the end of the road, turn right into Rue Fracasse, then turn left into Avenue de la République. Stop in front of the Saint-Augustin church, turn left into the Hocquart de Turtot Avenue until Villa Strassburger. Built in 1907 on the site of the Coteau farm, owned by Gustave Flaubert, this villa is the most famous of the city.
