La Croix, one of the largest lookouts in the Alps
Accessible by foot or via La Croix gondola from the resort of Chamrousse 1650, it offers one of the most impressive panorama of the Belledonne range and Grenoble valley.
Located at 2250m altitude, the Croix of Chamrousse overlooks the resort and the Grenoble valley.
It is accompanied by a weather station, the third highest in Europe and a monumental Cross. The history of this cross is unknown but it is no less one of the emblematic places of Chamrousse. It dates from the 17th century and was once made of wood. At its feet, Roman medals had been discovered.
In winter as in summer, it is a place to go to reach for the sky and admire the sunsets, the starry nights and the illuminated valley.
It is a privileged starting point for hiking in any season but also for downhill mountain biking in summer.
The mountain restaurant "La Croix de Chamrousse" allows you to enjoy the view from the terrace while dining there after a walk or skiing.
Information panels about geology and an orientation table complement the discovery.
