It is one of the most beautiful part of Grenoble (there are little). There are nice French buildings which I love, and you can go to the Lycée Champollion next or/and the Place Grenette. Do not miss this spot.

On the one hand, this square is beautiful for its layout and its location, surrounded by Belle-Époque buildings that make Grenoble look halfway picturesque at least in one small area. But on the other hand, as the Place Victor-Hugo sits at a busy part of...More

I used to love coming here when I lived in Grenoble. I would sit and look at the fountain and feel carefree. I guess coming back here 12 years later made me feel a little nostalgic. For me, place Victor Hugo never lost it's magic....More

In the Spring it's nice to take a stroll through the park or get a coffee in one of the cafés in or across the street from la place. You can sit down and just do some people watching (there are many to watch!) An...More

I ended up in this beautiful park several times during my visit to Grenoble. It was very relaxing just to watch the flowers and the surrounding old buildings for some moments before continuing to explore the city.

Good place for a stopover when you are sightseeing Grenoble. Nice bar to spend some evening time. Hope to come again and enjoy the Christmas market.

While wandering the streets of Grenoble we stumbled upon Place Victor Hugo, much to our delight. There are restaurants and stores surrounding the park, yet you can escape from the busy pace of the city by wandering in and gazing at the fountain. Very pleasant.
