What a gorgeous lake! The water is incredibly clear and the shoreline is clean. We loved walking along the edge and enjoying the scenic views. The many swans and ducks were so fun to watch. Highly recommend sitting and relaxing by Lake Geneva!

Was around the park in the evening enjoyed seeing the boats and the birds, there’s also a tourist train at the park next to the lake. Easily accessible by bus or tram from the train station in the city center you can just walk down.

Beautiful clear water. Lovely taking a ferry ride...a must if you have time. Walk along the Promenade,it's invigorating. Get a view of the snow peaks at a distance. If you love sailing, try the yatch club.
