General Tourist Information

Clermont-Ferrand is located on the top of an extinct volcano in the Massif Central region of France. The area is well known as the home of Michelin tyres but something may not be aware of is that the famous guide books of the same name were originally designed to encourage people to use their cars for tourism, and in the process use more tyres!

Clermont is a university town and is home to some of the most passionate rugby people you could meet. Munster supporters who were fortunate enough to make previous visits in December will remember the weekend which, although involving freezing temperatures, was one of the standout trips in our Heineken Cup history. Following the frequent clashes between the two sides in recent times, many supporters argue that Clermont is among the top rugby destinations in Europe.

From the 30th of November the popular Clermont Christmas markets with more 70 decorated chalets will be taking place in Place de la Victoire (Victory Square), Enjoy a ‘vin chaud’ while you take in the crafts and souvenirs from local sellers.
