Advice on what to pack

by langelin

Hi everyone. I'm going to be in Grenoble for a month between end of May and end of June. I'm going for work so I'd really appreciate if someone could tell me what I should pack as well as some important dos and don'ts of the local culture.

Thanks!

Re: Advice on what to pack

What to pack? What do you mean, clothes ? The weather, especially at that time of the year is fairly impredictable and can range from hot to cool. End of June can even be very hot, almost summer. At the end of April, that was, very unusually the case but the beginning of May has been unusually wet and cool. So be ready for anything!

Grenoble is a very mixed town, with a great many foreign visitors, students, researchers, etc living there for a few weeks or for a few years and there are not really any "dos and don'ts of the local culture". I am sure you will enjoy your stay. If you have not, I advise you to have a look at my Grenoble page, as well as my Meylan, St Martin d'Hères and St MArtin le Vinoux pages. They should give you a good many answers. I will be glad to answer your other questions.

Thanks for the reply. I'm sorry if I didn't make my question clear. Yes I meant what to pack as in what should I bring for clothes. I've been looking at the weather forecast and it seems to go up and down quite fast although it's been more on the cool side.

Pack layers so you are prepared for anything. Grenoble is in the Alps so you can even get snow although the month of June should be ideal. I say "should be" because we just returned from southern France and there was snow one day in May while we were there. Expect anything and you will be fine. Also be sure to pack an umbrella. It's been cold and wet this year but that could change in an instant. We've also run into serious heat waves in May.

Local culture: About the same as everywhere else. Say please and thank you whenever appropriate. Normally when you enter a shop, you greet the proprietor and say au revoir as you leave the shop. In restaurants the waiter will not hover over your table asking you if things are all right. He assumes things are all right unless you call him over and tell him they are not . . . so if there is a problem with your order, tell the waiter or nothing will happen. At the end of a meal, ask for the check (l'addition, s'il vous plais) or you will sit there all night waiting for it.

Do visit the Beaux Arts Museum in Grenoble. They have a very nice collection. It's a beautiful and fun city. You should enjoy it and June is a great time to go.

hi, I do also travel frequently for work purposes to Grenoble and even live there particularly. this time I'll stay almost 2 months starting from monday the 7th of June.
grenoble is a very strange place in terms of climate. in the summer time you could get the cold, and in the winter time you might walk with your t-shirts :)
i'm a fan of this city for the last 4,5 years, i can tell that it's one of the best cities I've ever visited in it's size.
to make it short, bring everything you could put into your luggage.
i intend to drive to tho south of france as well, and if there is anybody who want to join me, than you're welcome.

hope to meet new people around Grenoble....

Travel Tips for Grenoble

La Bastille

by Lilasel

The ancient fortifications of the Bastille, at the foot of the Chartreuse massif, tower over the Grenoble area. This is now one of Grenoble's top tourist attractions, offering breathtaking all-round views of the city and the surrounding mountains.

First fortified in the Middle Ages, the Bastille hill is covered with the most extensive 19th century military fortifications in France. The semi-underground bastion defence system, designed by Haxo and built between 1823 and 1845, provided all-round protection for Grenoble, lying at a strategic position on the Alpine frontier.

The city of Grenoble

by Lilasel

Grenoble is a major scientific center, especially in the fields of physics, computer science and applied mathematics. The European Synchrotron Radiation Facility (ESRF), the Institut Laue-Langevin (ILL) and several laboratories of the Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique (CNRS), the Institut National Polytechnique de Grenoble (INPG), the Institut National de Recherche en Informatique et en Automatique (INRIA) and the Commissariat à l'Énergie Atomique are located in Grenoble. An IEP is located here, the Institut d'études politiques de Grenoble, as well as an increasingly reputated business school, the École de Commerce de Grenoble (ESCG)

Oiseau de tôle (Steel bird)

by JLBG

It is within the framework of the French symposium of sculpture of Grenoble (1967) that Coulentianos Costas created this work. It is established at the entry of Grenoble while coming from Chambéry. A steel cylinder supports great prismatic volumes that are standing out in front of the Belledonne mountains. The plans are multiplied and organized in volumes in order to avoid any symmetry. By the abstraction, the artist joined the world of living beings. As if they were free from gravity, light weighted, this sculpture evokes the bird, its dynamic figure also expresses the concept of take-off, of rise.

Entrées gratuites au musée

by Klod5

ENTREZ AU MUSÉE, C'EST GRATUIT !

Depuis le 1er janvier 2004, les musées départementaux relevant du Conseil Général de l'Isère sont gratuits pour tous (Isérois et non Isérois).
Sont concernés par cette mesure les 9 établissements suivants :
- le musée de la Révolution française, Vizille
- le musée départemental de Saint-Antoine L'Abbaye
- le musée Hébert, La Tronche,
- le musée Hector Berlioz, La Cote Saint-André,
- le musée dauphinois, Grenoble
- le musée de la Résistance et de la Déportation de l'Isère, Grenoble
- le musée de l'Ancien Evêché, Grenoble
- le musée de la Houille blanche, Lancey*
- le musée archéologique / Eglise saint-Laurent (Grenoble)*,
*ces deux derniers musées étant actuellement fermés au public pour travaux.

L'entrée gratuite pour tous les isérois dans tous les musées départementaux devient une réalité à partir du 2 janvier 2004, après avoir été préalablement introduite dès juin 2001 pour les demandeurs d'emploi, les jeunes de moins de 25 ans et le premier dimanche de chaque mois pour l'ensemble du public, puis étendue le premier janvier 2003 à tous les mercredis.

Voici donc huit musées départementaux qui vous accueilleront gratuitement (le neuvième, le musée archéologique de l'Eglise Saint-Laurent, étant en travaux pour deux ans).

Des heures noires de l'Occupation à la vie de Berlioz, rien ne pourra plus faire obstacle à votre soif de connaissance, de culture, de découverte.
