Things to do in Grenoble
- Centre National d'Art Contemporain
Considered one of Europe's leading centres of contemporary art, it is dramatically placed in Le Magasin, a vast and hugely impressive glass and steel warehouse built by employees of Gustave Eiffel.
- Dauphinois Museum
The Musée Dauphinois documents everyday life in the Alps - culture, craft and tradition – and is set in a beautiful 17th-century convent, nestling at the foot of the hill below Fort de la Bastille.
- Fort de la Bastille
The Fort de la Bastille offers spectacular city and mountain views, including a glimpse Mont Blanc on clear days. The riverside Téléphérique takes you up in egg-shaped pods, which climb 264m from the quay over the swift waters of the River Isère.
- Grenoble Museum
The sleek glass-and-steel Musée de Grenoble houses an exceptional out-of-Paris collection, including a Matisse as well as the likes of Klee, Chagall and Léger.
- Ski & Snowboard
Fly to Grenoble for the gateway to 100s of kilometres of ski slopes at some of the Alp’s most famous resorts.
