Where Am I? Postcard Challenge #8

Today I'm going on a day trip, so here are the clues for this eighth postcard challenge:

1. The king bought this bankrupt university and installed his eldest son as ruler, who thus earning the title of "Dolphin."

2. This city is famous for a dish of potatoes baked in cream with a pinch of nutmeg.   
Bonus: What is this dish called?

3. It is a former host city for the Winter Olympics. Bonus: Which year did this city host the Olympics?

Think you know where I'm going? Leave your guess in the comments below before 4:00pm CET on Monday, April 4th and I'll draw the lucky winner.

Good luck!

Hey Vanessa!
I hope you're having a good time out there. Just saw this post come up on my facebook feed and I happen to know the answer. - I do believe that it is Grenoble. Anyways, you don't have to send me a postcard or anything I just wanted to let you know that I think it's cool what you're doing and good luck!!
