Annecy in winter (Photo: Raphael Fournier)
Annecy is a popular tourist destination in France with many festivals and celebrations throughout the year, and amongst these festivities is Christmas. Surrounded by snow-capped mountains and with a large and glistening lake, it is the perfect setting for enjoying this time of year.
There is a romantic fairytale atmosphere in Annecy, and this feeling can be really appreciated in the depths of winter. Annecy’s “Lovers’ Bridge” looks like a Christmas card picture when the ground is white with snow.
