Chamonix is a famous mountaineering town. But after a day spent on the slopes, the town is also great for a spot of shopping or for having a drink in a cool bar.
Chamonix is ideal for a gentle stroll, taking in the atmosphere, having a glass of mulled wine or enjoying a chocolate crepe. Our favourite haunts are Chambre Neuf, Elevation 1904, La Terrasse and MBC. Several nightclubs are open late as is the Casino.
Once in town, why not go shopping? Drop in to Chanel, Patagonia, or a good-quality Savoie specialty food store. The year-round Chamonix market is open on Saturday mornings and is definitely worth a visit. You’ll find reblochon cheese, crafts, fresh produce, mulled wine and a friendly, bustling vibe.
