More about Hotel Or Blanc


by keeweechic about Hotel Meridien Part-Dieu

The Meridien Part-Dieu formerly the Pullman Hotel)**** This is where I stayed, right in the town centre. It is the highest hotel in Europe above the city at a height of 108m, and has exceptional views over Notre dame de Fourviere and the Mont Blanc. The underground is only 200 metres away.

There is so much to see in France. You have Paris, Lyon, Marsailles, Nimes, Provence, Loire Valley, Mont Blanc, Annecy, Brittany, Bordeaux, Strassborg, Nancy, and so much more. The French drive a little crazy and rude and it is hard to find someone who speaks English. I heard a joke about France that makes sense to me. God made France so beautiful that in order to be fair to the rest of the world he had to give it to the French. Therefore taking away some of the beauty! Ha ha! It is a beautiful country with wonderful scenery and beautiful buildings and villages. If you are a traveller I would suggest visiting France for at least a week. If you like city life, then go to Paris. If you like castles, then go to the Loire Valley. If you like beaches, then go to the French Riviera. If you like mountains, then go to Grenoble and Chamanoix. If you like history, then go to Provence.

FRANCE - land of baguettes and romantic castles

by Leipzig

A country rich with history, beautiful landscapes and culture. To the northeast is the Rhine River, the natural border with Germany. The Alps, with Europe's highest point - Mont Blanc (4,810 m = 15,781 ft) make the border to Italy and Switzerland, the Pyrénées make the Spanish border. Except the central plateau and the eastern and southern mountains France is a plain country, formed by the rivers Seine, Loire, Garonne and Rhône.
Thinking of France the first thought would surely be Paris, the capital of romance, as it is claimed to be. Strasbourg, the city close to the German border, is a good example for towns of the Alsace region with its well-preserved city centres.

The monetary unit is the Euro (€).

The official language is French. German is also spoken to the east, Spanish to the south. In tourist spots English is also spoken.

The capital is Paris.

My pages provide you with information about Paris and the Alsace region, including Strasbourg.

Schilthorn, not only for James Bond-fans !

by globetrott

Schilthorn is one of the most scenic mountain-peaks in Switzerland and a cablecar will get you there. "Piz Gloria" is name that it got in the James Bond-Movie "On her Majesty's Service", that was made there in 1968 (It is the one, where Bond is marrying Diana Rigg, but she is killed at the end...). On a clear day Schilhorn with a hight of 2970 meters offers a perfect 360 degree-panorama including Eiger, Moench, Jungfrau,Mont Blanc, the Lake Thun, Schyniggeplatte, the mountains around Bern and Fribourg and plenty of others.
In the souvenir-shop on ground-floor (USA:1st floor) you even have a large section in the self-service-bar, decorated in 007-style , and of course the shops offer a wide range of 007-souvenirs !!
On 2nd floor you will find a revolving restaurant and there is a large platform behind the restaurant-building as well - the perfect place for your pictures !!
From that platform / terrace you may step down the mountain and walk down to Muerren, BUT it is ONLY possible and advisable for experienced and well-equipped hikers (or Paragliders, as you may see in my sporting-tips) !!

Europe, the planet's 6th largest continent includes (44) countrIes and numerous related dependencies, islands and territories.
It's separated from Asia by the Ural Mountains in the east and the Caspian Sea in the southeast.
The highest points are Mt. Elbrus, at 18,481 ft (5,633 m), just north of the Georgia/Russian border, and in western Europe, Mont Blanc, at 15,771 ft (4,807m) in the French Alps.
Europe's lowest point is the surface of the Caspian Sea, 92 ft (28m) below sea level

Matterhorn to Mt. Blanc

by HawaiiGuy


Can anyone tell me approximate line-of-sight distance from Matterhorn to Mt. Blanc? TV show last night focusing on lakes within Mt. Blanc glaciers panned around from top of Mt. Blanc and I was hoping to see Matterhorn (I realize it would be the back of the Matterhorn). But what is the approximate distance? Would appreciate this out here in Hawaii where we have mountains ALMOST as high as the Matterhorn...

Merci beaucoup et Schoen Dank!

Re: Matterhorn to Mt. Blanc

Mont Blanc in France? is about 33 miles as the crow flies.

Re: Re: Matterhorn to Mt. Blanc

by HawaiiGuy

Oh, thanks -- 50 km -- no WONDER I couldn't see it. THANKS!

Re: Re: Matterhorn to Mt. Blanc

by YVRDave

No probs.

Re: Matterhorn to Mt. Blanc

by PeteNL

Just for the record: With only 50km distance you should be able to see one from the other - I once visited a nearby mountian (Eggishorn, and saw both in the distance, Matterhorn must have been (at least) 30km away and Mt Blanc 80km. And on previous days, climbing tops in the Mt. Rosa range nr. Matterhorn some mountains were visible at 100-150 km distance. But you must be lucky, and no other high ones blocking your view!


Re: Re: Matterhorn to Mt. Blanc

by HawaiiGuy

Actually, that's right. I routinely look out my window to the east and see Haleakala, the 10,025-foot massive volcano that makes up southern Maui, and it is 117 statute miles away. But ONE "problem" with that view from Mt. Blanc was that ... there were so MANY "pointy" mountains. Mahalo to all.

Mont Blanc/ Aguille du midi

by Mytotti


On our way to Tuscany in a few weeks we will go to Courmayeur and are planning on going up to Aguille du midi 3800m high with the cable car. Has anyone been there in summertime? How much cloths do you need? How cold is it.
I am planning to phone the tourist information but thought I would give it try here first


Re: Mont Blanc/ Aguille du midi

by MrBill

There will be snow as it is a glacier, of course. Depends on the micro-weather on the day you go? It could be raining, snowing or sunny and warm?

In general, for travel of the glacier in the Spring and Summer, I bring along my knapsack so that I can stuff my raincoat and a fleece vest into it. Zippered pants, which double as shorts, but which can be done up into trousers are a great when you are rapidly changing altitudes and or in and out of the wind at high elevations. If it is sunny, the glare from the glacier will be quite intense so don't forget to wear good sunglasses, a hat, and your sunscreen (min. factor 30 depending on how easy you turn red). If you are slogging around in the snow, I would wear hiking boots as opposed to running shoes. They won't get as wet, and give better traction where its slippery.

I hope it is a sunny, warm day for you and the view fantastic. Will be great to see all the crevaces and the blue ice. Cheers.

by purplesky

It was such a great experience to be above the clouds! Just gorgeous. You'll need to be prepared, as the previous VTer has described. The temperatures may not be too terribly cold, but cold nonetheless. Layering would be best...A good outer shell and fleece pullover, pants and windpants, and hiking boots would do. I agree, bring your sunglasses and enjoy!


Day trip from Geneva day to Chamonix Mont-Blanc

by satishdave

We are planning a day trip from Geneva to Chamonix Mont-Blanc in August. We just want to enjoy the scenic view and cable ride.

1. I see options online to buy pack for $220 per person. Is there a way to get better deal if I just buy it when we are in Geneva.
2. Secondly what kind of temperature one should expect there in the month of August.

Thanks in advance for your thoughts.

Re: Day trip from Geneva day to Chamonix Mont-Blanc

by K_V_B

Geneve to Chamonix mt. Blanc is 36,60 Euro pp return, valid on any train on the route. So that $220 seems a tad overpriced.
just buy your tickets at the railway station in Geneve. Just remember that you need to go to the "Eaux Vives" station, not to the main "Cornavin" station.

Re: Day trip from Geneva day to Chamonix Mont-Blanc

by bekerovka

The cable Chamonix-Aiguille du Midi (3842 mt) costs 40€.
The temperature can also go down 0°C in summer, it's better you'll got something heavy or a windstopper and sunglasses because the sun rays at 3800 meters high are very intense.
In summer you can also cross la Mer de Glace, one of the bigger glacier in Europe, with the cable between Aiguille du Midi and Helbronner Peak (italian side) with other 20€.
Hope this helps
Ciao, Marco
