Coming to the Alpine town of Annecy, known for its charming canal-woven streets and its striking views of both mountains and lake, is a bit like entering a fairy tale. With ancient Châteaus and cobbled streets jam-packed with charming shops, it can be difficult to decide what to do first. This guide aims to highlight the best of Annecy, starting out by exploring the lake and its shores, including the old part of town, and expanding in day two to include some of Annecy's more curious sights and local haunts. In day three, head outside of the city center to take on nature's dizzying heights and leafy trails, in one of a number of different day trip options. But most of all, relax and have fun! You are in lovely Annecy.

Madison S's City Tips

  • Some of Annecy's biggest attractions do not feature, or have minimal English explanation. Looking up a site's history ahead of visiting may be useful.
  • Annecy is an extremely safe city, but as you would anywhere, make sure to keep purses zipped and wallets secure, as some theft does on occasion occur.
  • Annecy has plenty of nature to explore: Just remember to take a bottle of water while doing it to avoid dehydration.
  • Trips up mountains can quickly get very chilly, so if you plan to take a hike, do take along a jacket or sweater, just in case.
  • Tipping isn't generally done in restaurants here. A service charge will be added to meal bills, and any additional tip is a recognition of exemplary service.

    Madison S Says:

    Lac d'Annecy offers a beautiful introduction to the city's raw and rugged natural surroundings. The craggy mountain ranges in the distance provide a stunning backdrop for the lake, where serene waters can make for a perfect morning of kayaking, canoeing, fishing, or even sightseeing. Take breakfast or a warm drink along with you and picnic by the pier watching the sailboats pass by, or go on a guided tour. A visit to Lac d'Annecy is a relaxing way to get your bearings and settle into your holiday.

    A tour around the scenic shores of Lac d'Annecy is a great way to take in the breathtaking sights from every angle while learning a little bit about the history of the city itself. The tour's guides explains landmarks as you pass them, but the real treat is in the leisurely boat ride itself, which proves that the best way to see the lake and its mountainous vanguards might just be from the water — without you having to do the rowing! (Makes taking photos that much easier!)

    For midday, a stop-off at Parc Charles Bosson puts you back on dry land, where you can picnic, stroll, or even sunbathe if the season is right. Shady and verdant, the park is a serene spot to start your vacation reading, or, if you're feeling full of energy, to tackle its trails for a run, a cycle, or even skateboarding. Located on the banks of Annecy Lake, its an easy hub to access.

    Heading into Annecy's city center, the Musee Chateau d'Annecy is a marvellous first stop to get the vibe of the old city. A must-visit, the Chateau itself is a historic building with architecture that harkens back to a rustic past, while inside it houses an array of exhibits on Savoy art and culture. A blend of temporary and permanent exhibits keeps the collection fresh, blending modern art and archeology under one roof. The view from the Chateau is an extra treat, as it overlooks one of the prettiest parts of the city.

    La Vieille Ville is the star of Annecy. No visit is complete without wandering the small streets, meandering under archways, traversing waterways over charming bridges, taking in the hodgepodge of shops and restaurants along the channels. Antiquated homes and buildings are enlivened by bright lights and awnings, boutiques are bustling with business, flowers are busting out of window planters, and cafes are spilling onto tiny terraces. Whether you decide to sit down for a cup of espresso, or take your window shopping to go, be sure to have a walk around this completely charming area.

    • It is a popular tradition to stroll along these streets with a cup or cone of gelato in hand — and there are plenty of ice cream shops in the area.

    Located in the old town, the Palais de I'lle makes for a quick and architecturally stunning visit. The small building which juts on to the water used to be a prison, and is now home to a quaint little exhibit on local history and art. Even if you do not venture inside to gander at the rooms that once held infamous prisoners, certainly explore from the outside: It's a quick stop, and a truly interesting building.

    Your second day in Annecy is a winning time to visit some of the city's off the beaten path gems. The Basilique de la Visitation is one such gem. The marble and mosaic masterpiece is stunning all on its own, from its ambient chambers to its stained glass. Though small, the Basilique offers visitors another temptation: It is situated at the top of a hill, and the views of Annecy from the church are gorgeous. The church also provides visitors with information about the history of the building and its founding.

    The Conservatoire Art et Histoire is one of the quirkiest museums around.

Get hands-on experience with old filming equipment, view original posters, and even watch a few films yourself — the selection ranges from the very famous to the very unknown, highlighting student films and quick animations. The highlight is getting to create your own animation, if you have the time and patience to give the equipment a try.

Enjoy real serenity parked out on the lake, and decide on how you'd like to spend part of it: going for a swim in the lagoon? Pulling up outside of a restaurant? Bringing your own meal along for a boat picnic? The Safari guides will help you make the most of your tour, while all the while regaling you with local stories and histories surrounding Annecy and its lake.

    For day three in Annecy, it's worthwhile to take a trip far outside of the main city reaches to really enjoy the rich landscapes of the surrounding area. At La Tournette, a famed parachuting climb, visitors can hike a trail with arresting views. Thrill-seekers can take on some of the more daring paths, that involve drops and rope-climbing. There's a space on La Tournette to watch the colorful parachute jumpers take off, and if you don't catch sight of them, you'll almost certainly catch sight of local wildlife, like mountain ibex and cheerful cows. Despite some difficult portions, the walk is even and suitable for beginners. If you make it all the way to the top, you're rewarded with a view of the French Alps.

    Tips
    • It is a little under a half an hour drive to Le Semnoz from the city center — but a very picturesque, leafy green drive.
    • There is a fee to use the toboggans or go-karts at Le Semnoz.
    • There are restaurants on both sides of the summit to stop in for a bite, if you'd prefer not to carry your own food. (However, taking water with you is recommended.)

    Chateau de Montrottier is a stunning castle, and like almost everything in postcard-perfect Annecy, it has an amazing view. Tour the Chateau's garden, or visit the inside of the bygone structure to view its collection of artifacts in its various themed rooms, from the bronze room to the ceramic room. Whether you decide to visit just the grounds, or the interior, the Chateau is a breathtaking reminder of Annecy's rich history.

    The elevated walk along Gorges du Fier takes nature trails to the next level. Take an unhurried stroll around this winding path, discovering caves gouged into the mountains, waterfalls, and mossy rock formations. The Gorge is one of Annecy's most handsome locations for photos, so don't be ashamed to bust out the selfie stick.
