Mini Guide to Pau

Why is Pau so Popular?
There can be no doubt that it’s the location of the town at the foot of the Pyrenees that is Pau’s main attraction. There are few places with such a beautiful aspect and it’s on the popular GR65 hiking trail. The town has other attractions too including great gastronomy, culture and sporting opportunities.

How do I get to Pau?
Pau-Pyrenees Airport is only six miles northwest of Pau and the town is easily accessed by hire car collected from the airport. There are flights from London City Airport twice weekly to Pau or you can connect at Paris Charles de Gaulle from London for daily flights to Pau. The airport is a small one but has reasonable facilities including a restaurant and a shop.

What Should I see or do in Pau?
The Chateau de Pau is the main visitor attraction and is a beautiful palace, the birthplace of Henri IV. The architecture is dazzling and unlike many other chateaux in France, it is fully furnished with pieces from the time. Things to do nearby include hiking in the nearby Pyrenees, perhaps following the GR65 national hiking trail. Hang gliding is also popular in the mountains if you’re brave enough. Getting the funicular railway up and down from the station is fun and gives good views out over the valley and across to the mountains. Try fly fishing in the river that flows through the town and enjoy the snowy landscape in winter.
