Intimately linked to the Rhône
This ancient town on the Rhône’s banks lies between the Bugey’s Grand Colombier Mountain and the Montagne du Prince in Savoie. It offers leisure activities and a rich heritage linked to the Rhône.
For Seyssels’s inhabitants, the Rhône isn’t simply a frontier between the départements (French counties) of Ain and Haute-Savoie. A trading post since ancient times, this is both an historic port and a lively place today. Through exhibitions, films and models, La Maison du Haut-Rhône reveals the ancestral links between the local people and their river.Today, Seyssel also offers many leisure activities at the outdoor sports and recreation centre on the edge of town.
