If you’re up for a rewarding hike, head to Dent d’Oche to reach its 2,000-metre-high summit. Climb up the forested path to a chalet selling drinks, then head up through a green alpine meadow to capture Mont Blanc mountain views from the top.

Marvel at the Palais Lumiere with its yellow facade, square tower and glass dome, which showcases paintings of nymphs in its entrance lobby. Explore its interior to admire the beautiful stained-glass windows and browse the collection of sculptures before visiting the multimedia library and convention centre.
