Your travel guide to Annecy

Situated on the banks of the large Annecy lake, the city of Annecy is the most populous in the mountainous Haute-Savoie department of France. It is built on either side of the Thiou River and a number of man-made waterways criss-cross the city which led to it being nicknamed the Venice of the Alps. The city has a charming Old Town and a burgeoning university. Its proximity with Geneva is ideal for an easy getaway to Switzerland. The city offers a wide choice of things to do, especially sporting and cultural activities. The wonderful nature that surround the city offers the perfect setting for both summer and winter activities.

When to go to Annecy ?

If you are interested in winter sports, then anytime from late November to mid-March will see a good amount of snow in the average year. Prices for accommodation rise steeply over Christmas and the New Year period, however. In summer, Annecy has a very different feel with huge numbers of flowers in bloom. Several beaches face the lake and you can while away entire days enjoying the warm waters and sunbathing in a relaxed environment.

What to do in Annecy ?

Annecy offers a historic setting to explore as well as some modern activities which will get the blood pumping and the adrenaline flowing. From mountain and water activities to cultural attractions, the "Venice of the Alps” will not disappoint.
