Carousel near the lac Annecy
This carousel is open even in off-season when it's not too cold. It's cheap and fun for the kids. It is on a spit of land along the lake shore, near the hotel de ville (mayors). It's near a lot of shopping, so is a good break for the kids in between stores!

Visit of the castle
The castle, former residence of the Counts of Geneva, is now a museum with several collections of paintings and remains of woodworking and farming in the Alps. A part of the castle explains the history of the lake and shows the fish in the lake. Furthermore there is a room with a temporary exposition.
I prefered the rooms with the old wooden Alpine furniture.
a street in the old town of annecy, doesnt it look pretty?
i definately prefer the old town to the new one.
you ll find plenty of artisanal shops, restaurants, local food shops, and is a very lively place to be, especially in the summer time.
Annecy, my secret favourite since 1978
"Pure lake - pretty mountains"
My member foto shows me sitting high above the lake of Annecy, between Col de la Forclaz and Dents de Lanfon, making a small break and looking towards Annecy, seeing this view.
"Paragliders and Deltas"
The east side of the lakes mountains has two start places for paragliders and deltas. The conditions are superb, you can stay in the air from 11 am till 5 pm without landing. Well organized tandem flights for unexperienced persons to go with a professional pilot are offered.
The ramp is highly inclined, it is easy to start: a few steps and you are rising in the air, not falling down. Some days you can count 100 paragliders flying; on the ramp one goes every 2 minutes.
