This is probably the most popular hiking destination around Grenoble and offers an amazing view over the city and the surrounding mountains including Mont Blanc. Accessible from la Gare by bus T65 (link for the schedule) to stop Saint-Nizier Le village. From there it's 2-3h hike to reach the top.
Take the bus 62 from Nôtre-Dame to the stop Col de Vence (15 min), from there it is a 1,5-2h hike to reach the fortress which offers a breathtaking view over Grenoble and the surrounding mountains.
It's one of the closest hikes from the city!
Also I leave here the link to hiking app, it's useful.
Use the DB Navigator App (German railway) to book train tickets for the Swiss railway. Just choose a destination in Germany so that the connection passes through Switzerland. Example: Geneva-Stuttgart (via Bern, Zurich or Basel) for 30€ instead of 100€ using the Swiss railway app/website.
