Grenoble Tourism

Visit Grenoble - Best of Grenoble

It’s been said that Grenoble is the capital of the French Alps. It is at the very least, the walnut capital. Crossed by two rivers, this 2000+ year old city packs a great nature vs man vibe, in that you’re never too far away from either the city or natural beauty. It’s surrounded by high mountains that make for great hiking in the summer and for even better skiing in the winter. It’s a major scientific centre with institutes like the European Synchotron Radiation Facility, the Institut Laue-Langevin, the European Molecular Biology Laboratory and Nuclear Energy Commission making their home there. It’s a major student town too, and that helps because it’s student prices for everything! And thanks to that, it has a brilliantly diverse ethnic population.
