Where is Alpe D’Huez?

Before we delve into the various ways you can get to Alpe D’Huez, let’s first establish exactly where it is located. 

 

Alpe D’Huez can be found deep in the Alps, specifically in southeastern France. Alpe D’Huez’s closest airport is Grenoble Airport in France, with airports in Chambery, Lyon and Geneva in Switzerland also nearby.

 

Famed for its spectacular landscapes, magnificent views and wide range of activities, the region of Alpe D’Huez has been occupied since the Middle Ages with the original settlements surrounded by the two villages of Huez and Brandes. In 1983, these villages became designated historical monuments amid the vast amount of tourism the area now sees.

 

The first appearance of skiing in the region dates back to the early 1900s when it quickly became a huge business and the main area of economic activity in the area. 

 

By the 1930s, Alpe D’Huez had become one of the most famous resorts in France and the Alps as a whole. It was in this decade when the first hotels were built in order to facilitate the interest in alpine sports and the tourism industry has grown ever since with it becoming home to Tomorrowland Winter, a huge event taking place in March every year and attracting visitors from around the world.
