6 Museum of Megève
After the Revolution, in 1795, the House of Charity becomes a Home which can accommodate 20 poor people, men and women. In 1862, the priest Ambroise Martin gave the management to the Saint-Joseph Sisters.
From 1982, a few years after the opening of the new retirement home, this building had thematic exhibitions, and became officially the Museum of Megève in 1988 till September 2016.
Chapel visit and permanent exhibition “3 centuries of solidarity in Megève”, which unveils the unique story of the Alms House that became a hospice in 1793, by means of a film, archives and photographs.
Upon request, throughout the year. Admission free.
7 Saint-Gervais Church
Apart from the 19th century geometric stained glass windows on the facade, the church also has windows created in 2016 by the Korean artist Kim En Joong.
8 2KM3 Saint-Gervais contemporary art platform
car park and on the post office wall. Access during opening hours
to view the works at the pool and in the different lift stations.<br/>Urban artists have created a contemporary art circuit within
resort by performing works of art in several unusual places.
The underground car park located in the centre of Saint-Gervais
has been transformed into a monumental and unprecedented
platform dedicated to modern art. The north facing facade
of the post office offers a very different interpretation
of the surrounding summits. Finally, the walls of the gondola
stations in Saint-Gervais, Le Bettex and Mont d’Arbois and those
of the swimming pool in Saint-Gervais, are decorated with
a selection of original works. To complete the picture, discover
the fresco by Francois Durafour: an entire wall painted to celebrate
the 95th anniversary of the landing of the first plane
on the “Col du Dome”

13 Nature Reserve
Take time to enjoy and savour its many different facets (lakes, mountain pastures, cliffs, glaciers). Appreciate its varied fauna and flora: chamois, ibexes and black grouse live among the gentians and rhododendrons.
The natural environment is fragile and animal life is easily disturbed, so please help us by being very careful not to interfere with the natural equilibrium.
Help preserve nature for our own and future generations.
Nature Reserves are part of the very rare areas of Haute-Savoie where nature has remained “unspoiled” by human contact. So enjoy them! Savour the silence and don’t forget that the rules exist to remind us that nature must be respected!
14 Plateau d'Assy
15 Lac Vert
Set in an exceptional natural environment, this site is accessible to all the family.
The extraordinary transparency of the water allows one to observe the accumulation of trees and plants on the bed of the lake.
These elements, combined with the presence of blue-green algae, give the lake its remarkable emerald green colour.
Altitude: 1200m. Magnificent view of Mont Blanc range.
Vehicles prohibited from 01/06 to 30/09 and throughout the winter season. Access limited to owners and beneficiaries. Free shuttle every 15 minutes from Wednesday to Sunday, 10am to 1pm and 2pm to 6pm.
16 Green Lake Loop
In summer, a development allows you to go around the lake in about fifteen minutes. The extraordinary transparency of the water makes it possible to observe an accumulation of trees and plants at the bottom of the lake. These elements, combined with the presence of blue algae, give the lake its remarkable emerald green color. This magical coloring seduces Mont-Blanc, which often gives off its majestic reflection on the calm surface of the lake.
For the return, from the parking lot of the Lac Vert restaurant, go up the track leading to the Châtelet d'Ayères refuge then turn left to pass above the lake and join Plaine-Joux.
