The tourists visitor center provides a book that describes the various hikes in the area. This is a nice hike that offers a beautiful view of the city and mountains. Wear good hiking shoes, bring water, and wear a hat.

Stunning views and a unique curiosity. A fairly steep incline leads you up to a series of chapels & churches. Well worth the small detour from the centre of Megève.

Not a hard walk at all, easy to find in the village, lovely views and trees and chapels. In summer lovely, I imagine no less beautiful in winter. A 20 min walk maximum.

Megeve is beautiful. The Chemin du Calvaire is accessible from the town centre. The tourist office people were very friendly and provided a map and information. The trail is a short distance, a bit steep but not far and definitely worth the walk.
