Grenoble is a lively and welcoming place, and its heart beats to the rhythm of fascinating contrasts. Despite the fact that Grenoble is a metropolis in the Alps, it is the flattest city in France. The city is perfect for walking with no slopes, plenty of cafés and lots to look at. When you stand in Place St. Andre, the square in the middle of the city, you have historic monuments all around you. This is an impressive sight along with a good cup of coffee. Naturally, you will be drinking it at the Café de la Table Ronde that is the second oldest café in France. The café was the favourite place of Sara Bernhardt, Jacques Brel and the city’s son, the writer, Stendhal.
There are more than 200 skiing resorts in the surrounding area. From here, it is easy to access skiing, mountain climbing and paragliding. Grenoble holds a lot of surprises !
Grenoble is a dream location if you enjoy food. The region is renowned for using local produce in recipes that have been handed down generation after generation. A local dish is Gratin Dauphinois, a creamy potato gratin, which is available at most restaurants.
Late evenings and long nights characterize Grenoble’s entertainment scene. The large numbers of students keep the bars, cafés and discotheques going. Start the evening with an aperitif at one of the many brasseries on the square.
Grenoble has a good range of shopping. Exclusive shops are intermingled with artists’ studios, alternative clothes designers and sweetshops.
