What people are saying about Escher in Het Paleis

Overall rating

4.6
(253 reviews)

This is a very convenient way to ski Chamonix! We could have saved a little money by coordinating it ourselves, but this excursion made it so much easier for traveling with a family. Our guide, Chris, was very helpful and friendly. Bus was new and clean and had a little bathroom hidden by the stairs. We researched the slopes, ski bus routes, and trail reports beforehand which helped maximize our ski time so we didn’t have issues like other reviewers. Allow plenty of time to get back to the meeting point because bus travel within Chamonix can take awhile, even during low peak times. Def need multiple days to explore more of the slopes, but this is a great way to get a taste of skiing in the Alps!

The museum is the perfect size to spend an hour or so browsing. It’s interesting to see the progression of Escher’s art, including the multiple reprises as he rediscovered his favorite themes.

Wonderful trip between geometry and illusion. A very good movie also. Very good photos with great perspective and no FX/CGI

Great experience! So interesting, both the history of Escher and of the building where his art is housed.

It was a great way to see the sights in one day. We really enjoyed it.
