InterNations — A Community for American Expats in Grenoble

Hello to all Americans in Grenoble! Are you interested in getting to know fellow expats in Grenoble? Looking for advice from other Americans, e.g. wondering if there are any bars in Grenoble which will be showing your favorite baseball or American football team’s upcoming match or where to go in town for st■ turkey?

There’s no doubt about it: the many companies focused on high-tech manufacturing and research and development may be one incentive for expat life in Grenoble, but they certainly aren’t the only one. The “Capital of the Alps” is a very livable city known for being a major center of innovation, technology, and research within Europe, but also for its surrounding natural beauty, easy access to the European Alps and its ski resorts, and much more! With the network of bus and tram lines as well as numerous bikeways, navigating your way around the city from one place to the next is simple. This also means that if you don’t want to live among the hustle and bustle of the center, you can enjoy a quieter life in surrounding suburbs of Grenoble’s metropolitan area, which are up to an hour away from Grenoble’s center.

Although Grenoble has lots to offer, you might be wondering where and how you can meet other Americans in the city. Luckily, InterNations is here to make this easier for you! You’re warmly invited to join the InterNations community. Within our international network in Grenoble, there’s a vibrant circle of American expats from all regions of USA, including New York City, Los Angeles, and beyond.
