Annecy has a very beautiful central part and a marvellous lake rimmed with the Prealps mountains. But due to all this the weather in December is normally chilly. I think it still worth a visit, but you won't enjoy it as much as in late spring or in summer.

Thank.

Please give some suggestion where to go in Annecy. I think I will have 6 hours.

Can I explore the city by walking? I arrive by TER .

Start with visiting the tourist office, which is not far from the train station at 1 Rue Jean Jaurès. There you can find detailed directions and advice. Central Annecy is rather small, you can easily walk it in a couple of hours.
