We got to Annecy in the late afternoon. The lake was a great place to start our short visit in this town. There are numerous businesses renting paddle boats and motor boats for lake excursions. Private boats are also moored at the shore. The mountains in the background were just amazing. Not a long walk but well worth the time.

You have to bike around the 39 km .. do a picnic around the park and go to the river beach in a sunny day.

The lake is fantastic! The waters are really clear. The nature around the lake is beautiful connecting with it. I would recommend to rent a bike (one day (12h)) and do the tour du lac. The small cities around the lake are a beauty! Also if you can spare some more money, take a boat for a while and enjoy the lake from close up! I had a great time and created some of my most unforgettable memories there!

Wow. The views are amazing. Walking around the lake is easy ( we were here at the same time as the marathon so know running is possible, not an option we took). The view from above the lake is spectacular and walks are well marked. And we also took in the view from the lake in one of the many paddle boats. Gorgeous no matter which way you look at it. What’s so good about Annecy. 1. The scenery 2.the weather,We had some beautiful days,3. The people. Everyone we interacted with was lovely and polite and helpful despite our very limited google supplemented French.

We have had a fantastic 3 days in this beautiful place! Day one walks around the lake. Day 2 walks above the lake. Day 3 paddle boat on the lake. The old town was fantastic and we loved everything about this place. Unlike a previous reviewer who said the people were rude, perhaps you should learn a few pleasantries and engage with the people? We would highly recommend this place to all our family & friends.
