GreHack will take place in the city of Grenoble, France. Grenoble is the capital of the department of Isère, with about 157,000 inhabitants — 550,000 taking into account the metropolitan area. It is located in a valley surrounded by nearby mountains (the Chartreuse Mountains to the north, the Belledonne range to the east, and the Vercors Plateau to the west and south) that make Grenoble known as being the "Capital of Alps".

For touristic and practical information about Grenoble, please visit the following websites: Grenoble Tourism Office (in English and French), Isère Tourism Office (in English, French, and Dutch), and the city official website (in French).
