Nestled at the foot of Mont Blanc in an exceptional natural site, Chamonix is a mountain town combining modern comfort and authenticity of an alpine valley. We’re taking you to the discovery of this multifaceted station.

City hall

Chamonix offers a full range of quality accommodation, gourmet and varied cuisine, a warm welcome and a cosmopolitan and festive atmosphere. The richness of its history, as well as its unique cultural and architectural heritage, make Chamonix an alpine city with authentic character.

Sporty and fun

Chamonix is a lively resort with a colourful cultural and festive program and an inexhaustible source of sports activities throughout the year (hiking, mountaineering, climbing, trail, golf, paragliding, tennis, mountain biking, alpine skiing, snowboard, cross-country skiiing, snowshoes, etc.). Enough to satisfy the most sporty!


Chamonix and its incomparable panorama on the Mont-Blanc massif also seduces nature lovers from all over the world. Unforgettable excursions such as the one leading to the Aiguille du Midi, with the highest cable car in Europe (3942 m of altitude), or the visit of the Mer de Glace or its famous cave with the Montenvers rack-railway. Unique and magical!

In winter, the variety of skiing areas, most of which are above 2000 metres above sea level, ensure snow cover until early May; and the beauty of its summits make it one of the most renowned ski resorts in the world.
