The location of the youth hostel will allow you to reach both the city center and the Alps in no time. Here are some ideas for excursions:

  • Old Annecy: At the foot of the Alps, Old Annecy is a pastel-colored medieval city with an inimitable charm. Stroll through the cobbled streets to the castle or walk along the canals to the lake. In Annecy, all roads lead to the most emblematic places. Don't miss the Palais de l'Ile, the symbolic building of the city in the middle of the canal. 
  • The green way of Lake Annecy: On a 33km long route on the west bank, you will have the opportunity to walk or bike around the lake. Along the way, you will have the opportunity to immerse yourself in nature and to stop in the villages that border the lake. Watch the water change color throughout the day, from emerald green to beautiful turquoise. 
  • The Bout-du-Lac National Nature Reserve: To the south of the lake, this reserve crossed by two rivers is a marshy area that shelters an entire ecosystem. Refuge of an exceptional fauna, meet the beavers and many other species such as toads and several species of birds. Between forests and wet meadows, reedbeds and alkaline peat bogs, the Bout-du-Lac reserve is sure to amaze you.
  • La cascade d'Angon : On the eastern side of the lake, take a short 6km hike between the waterfall and the undergrowth. At the end of the hike, you will have a magnificent view of the lake and the summits.

As you can see, Lake Annecy has a lot to offer. Between picturesque villages and natural areas, it is a real haven of peace. For the more sporty, why not take a trek to the Alpine peaks from the youth hostel?
