    Les Lacets de Montvernier is a highest point in the French Alps. It's a short climb of only 2.32 kilometers long with 287 meters of drop. The average slope is 8.1%.

    It has been used several times during the Tour de France and is famous for its tight hairpins.

  • One of the highlights of the French Alps. With a length of just four kilometers and an altitude difference of 350 metres, this gem has a whopping 18 hairpin bends. A must for every lover of winding, slow and promising driving. Tip: Just don't lean on the shaky railing. That is there only pro formaaaaaaaaaaa….

  • Absolutely brilliant start, with us (September) the street was reserved for bikes only. A dream.
    We then continued down to St. Jean de Maurienne and on the other side up to the Col de la Croix de Fer / Col du Glandon.

  • The Lacets de Montvernier are for me one of the highlights with the bike at all. Since I saw her, I wanted to come here. Unfortunately, when you drive them, you do not see much of their fascination and it's really hard to capture them in a photo. Definitely an absolute must. Definitely plan!

  • The dream uphill, as you can enjoy the view in every curve. Once at the top, continue the tour over the Madeleine. Top location. Better not go downhill.

  • There are also 20 Tornante up to Alta Prada on Lago di Garda. Then continue towards Monte Baldo. Unbelievably passable in both directions

  • The street is an absolute highlight. I can only recommend driving the road uphill, as you can enjoy even more here

  • With the many serpentines you can quickly lose track of things. In a very small space this road winds up the mountain.

  • Famous climb to Montvernier. So much hairpins on so little space. "Lacets de Montvernier". Great climb towards for example the Col du Chaussy.

  • You can't see the spectacular road from a bicycle, but you shouldn't ignore this winding and lonely little road when you're in the vicinity.
