History and urbanism
What are the origins of Grenoble? Founded in 43 BC, it very quickly became a town hosting trade between Switzerland, Italy and Provence. Even today, the historic centre still bears witness to these varied influences. During the Franco-Savoyard wars, it developed its military side, but the 1968 Winter Olympics were to thank for its modernisation. As the host city, it even created new city districts. Also, the Polygone Scientifique research centre is now the second biggest in France.
You can’t visit Grenoble without going to see the Bastille! Take the cable-car to the top of this sheer slope for an impressive view over the city. You can also follow in the footsteps of legendary author Stendhal, do a little shopping in the Grand’Place, take part in the student parties in the Notre-Dame quarter or wander through the historic centre…. Whatever you choose, you can tailor your family weekend in Grenoble exactly how you want !
From Notre-Dame Cathedral to the Palais du Parlement and the Dauphinois Museum to the house where Stendhal was born, you can explore Grenoble’s history through its outstanding buildings and locations.
The locals know how to party! Make a note in your diaries of the Arténim, the contemporary art fair that takes place in February, as well as the Grenoble Jazz Festival (March), the Critérium Du Dauphiné Libéré cycle race (June) or the International Circus Festival (November).
