You can swim and sunbathe in the lake in the middle of the city of Geneva! This place is run by the city and I think they employ the unemployed. It's best to go in the summer when the lake is warmer because usually the water is very cold. There is a ladies' section where they have privacy so they... More

Geneva offers number of relaxing locations in every time of the year. Bains des Paquis is among my top favorites for summer. If the weather is nice, you get a the sun, the breeze, food and drinks.

After viewing the other reviews I wonder where these people went. During the winter months (Sep-Apr) the sauna and steam rooms are delightful. The sauna on the right is much hotter than the other. Jumping into Lac Leman is quite refreshing but can take your breath away. (Water temp 6C or 42F) Beer and wine is very reasonable for Geneva.... More

I did not expect to see people swimming in November cold in the lake. Still, many were were doing it. Numerous swans will keep you company if you decide to sit by the lake and enjoy the view.

This made beach is perfect in summer, you can have fresh lunch and some drinks with many bathers and enjoy the happy time with everyone. During winter is not that fun but you can always walk and enjoy the view of the lake

B de P is a blessing in this town. Go for a fondue, but sit in the hamman bath the day before. Always a good time.

We had read about the restaurant on our flight to Geneva and were curious to try something a bit different. The restaurant is reached by walking over a small bridge and along a jetty on the day we visited it was very windy and the water was splashing on to the walk way. You have stand outside in the cold... More

As new in Geneva, this was a must when we had our first visitors. I called in advance and booked a table 4 pax for 18:00, one of the last days of December. When we arrived we were greeted by an indifferent head-waitress who pushed the other waiters around in very rude manner. The only thing she told us was:... More

A really nice, calm and pretty place. You can enter paying a ticket and then once inside it, you can enjoy several services, toilettes, restaurant... this is the correct place if you want to take it easy and relax

We enjoyed going here for fondu with friends from outside town. The fondues are well known locally and you get a pretty view over the rest of Geneva. The service is all very rough and ready but that is part of the experience. You sit outside on benches in summer and inside a tarpaulin tent in winter. Feels like it... More
