chamonix is the outdoor town of france with hiking and climbing in the summer and skiing in the winter.
i was there myself because i took the tour de mont blnc trek around the highest mountain of western europe.
a very nice 8 day trek that took my fitness up to new levels.

    Hiking in the Chamonix area looks terrific Claus..Im not sure about uphill but I know my knees can handle downhill no problems! Looks like a great little hotel you managed to find..all one needs to fall asleep in for sure!

    What a beautiful place. I wouldn't mind that tiny pink room as long as it has a window!

    Claus, excellent page with very useful tips. I especially like the hotel and beer tip. We thought about visiting Chamonix from Sion but finally cancelled the idea and went to Zermatt instead. :-)
