How to optimize your 3-day weekend in Deauville?
Country of horses, cinema and maritime pleasures, here is a selection of places not to be missed if you enjoy a weekend in a hotel in Normandy.
Discover the racecourses.
Make a tour on one of the 2 racecourses of the city and plunge yourself into the equestrian universe. Guided tours, pony baptisms, sporting events, various animations, and the sites offer many activities to spend a pleasant day with your family. Even if you’re not a horse-riding enthusiast, it’s always fun to watch a horse race at least once in your life.
The Deauville-La-Touques racecourse became a real tourist attraction and was founded in 1863 by the Duke of Morny. Races are also held all year round and bring together athletes from all over the world, for example the “Rothschild Prize” or “Jacques le Marois”. The amphitheatre hall also serves as a performance hall. The kiosk service of your hotel in Deauville will help you find a representation that will delight the whole family.
The villa Strassburger and the International Congress Centre… chabadabada…
Built by Baron Henri de Rothschild in 1907 and bought by the American billionaire Ralph-Beaver Strassburger, the villa has been listed as a Historic Monument since 1975. The Strassburger family donated the building in 1980 to the Deauville community, unusual place, because of its original style mixing architecture “augeronne and savante”. Inaugurated in 1992, the Deauville Convention Centre now hosts more than 160 events a year. It also hosts the American Film Festival. You can come to discover the architectural aspect of the building, but also to attend live arts performances.

Deauville beach is also a paradise for windsurfers. Practical in all seasons, many clubs offer discovery baptisms for all ages and all levels.
