At the foot of snow beds, Grenoble is a city for sports, with a soft spot for cycling, since the creation of the Critérium du Dauphiné Libéré, shortly after the Second World War. The city launched the "Six-Jours en France". The numerous museums are the testimony of its cultural activities. In particular the Dauphinois Heritage museum.
