Travel Tips for Fontainebleau

Beautiful bouldering

by Sinjoor

As I stated in my intro this region is a climbers' paradise. Numerous boulders await anyone who's ready to rest his/her abilities. Difficulties range from children's routes to extremely dificult passages for the "happy few". This added to the accessibility and the nature of the area where these boulders are located make it a perfect family holiday destination. Obviously the necessary gear to practice this sport are climbing shoes. Gymshoes might do for those wanting to have a try at it, but they won't have the effect of real climbing shoes. A crashpad may prove to be very useful, especially on the higher boulders or those with all kinds of rocks lying around at their foot. Crashing down onto them unprotectedly is definitely not advisable. Many people also use chalk, especially in the harder parts. This however is officially banned, as is plainly advertised at the campground La Musardière.

Before Leaving Visit the Garden of Diana

by hquittner

When Napoleon I also became enamored of Fontainebleau, he used the North entrance and prepared ground level rooms behind the chapel for easy access and use. For security and importance he had the fine wrought iron fence built and emblazoned with his imperial "N" and placed two guilded iron eagles above. This sealed off his court of honor. (It is where he took his farewell after Waterloo). To the left a communicating walk leads to the Garden and Fountain of Diana. The Huntress statue (1603) as commissioned by Catherine de Medici has had its bronze dogs returned from the Louvre. The water show wasinstalled in 1803. There were many valuable statues scattered around but they have been moved indoors. (We did not have time for the Deer Gallery or the Museums).

Fontainebleau

by Sar77

"Napoleon-- you funny little man..."

After spending some hectic days and nights in the French Alps watching the tour de france we decided to start heading up towards Paris. We were not exactly ready for Paris yet...or perhaps Paris was not ready for us..therefore we decided to head over to Fontainbleau. We stayed for two nights there and I enjoyed it very much. This is a pic of Napleon's castle. It was beautiful! I am a huge Napleon history buff so I was able to visit a great little museam there for only 2 euro.

Family fun

by Sinjoor

When you allow the child in yourself and your imagination to roam freely you'll discover many surprising shapes among the boulders you come across, such as this "elephant" my kids were determined to "ride"...

or the giant petrified cousin of our labrador pup...

...who would end up challenging another one of his petrified cousins, the famous 'Cul de Chien' itself, in a make shift beauty contest.

However, climbing these magnificent shapes remains the main objective, each one performing according to their abilities. From the youngest..

...and shortest...

...over the slightly older...

...to the 'senior citizens' in the team.
