Annecy Hostel

Hostel Annecy

Hostelling International

Welcome to our hostel

Known as the Venice of the Alps, this stunning part of France is a great destination for groups whether they are travelling in winter or summer. The medieval town centre was built around the 14th Century Chateau and is dissected by small canals and streams running out of the famous Lake Annecy.

Our hostel is in a prime central spot for those groups looking to spend their time enjoying water sports at the lake. It is also just 800 metres away from the city centre, so in a perfect position for those wanting to discover the history of this charming city.

By far the best way to see things is on two wheels. So get on your bike and use pedal power to get around this beautiful city. But remember in August things will be pretty crowded because more than 100,000 people descend on the Lake to celebrate. A spectacle to behold, this event attracts visitors from all over the world and finishes with a stupendous fireworks display.
A sports lover’s dream Annecy is a year round destination for those looking to make the most of the outdoors. Whether it is water sports on the lake, snow sports on the mountains in the winter or hiking in the summer, Annecy has it all. It is also a candidate for hosting the Inter Olympic and Paralympic Games 2018.

The Lac d'Annecy is considered the soul of the town. Thought to be the purest lake in Europe, the turquoise waters remain a constant 24°C – perfect for swimming. Cyclist can follow the 30 km circuit around the shoreline, or visitors could wander in the Gardens of Europe, also beside the Lake. For the romantics amongst us make sure you take a detour to the Pont des Amours. On the middle of this ‘Lovers' Bridge’, be careful who you kiss: legend has it that after one kiss on this bridge you will remain together for life…

So if you think Annecy might the destination for your next groups’ trip, why not make an enquiry at the hostel now?
