Beautiful!

One more beautiful lake in Switzerland, as Zurich and Luzern. Nice lighthouse and lots of birds around.

This is one of the best and probably only the key attraction in Geneva. Walking around the lake side is just great - view of fountain is amzaing. The lake side looks so beautiful in the evening lights

I have been to Geneva several times. The lake area is a wonderful place to go around. It is clean and uplifting. A walk around the lake is invigorating and gives you peace. There is always so much going on around the lake that you could just relax and unwind. A beautiful place to visit,

Absolutely beautiful area to visit, I am fortunate to live here. Unfortunately it is not a cheap place to visit, but very worth a visit, there are lots of attractions all around the lake, after 4 years im still a tourist

The lake is so big, it can be seen from almost all the parks of the city. It is a pleasant place to walk by, enjoying the beauty of the lake and surrounding nature.

It's blooming big. Stayed in Geneva for three nights in February and really enjoyed it. Frequently walked along the waterfront. The water is really clear also.

beautiful and scenic, visited many times before. I especially enjoy chateau de chion (spelling!) where Mary Shelley wrote Frankenstein, an eerie and fascinating place. Its also lovely to see the grand houses that overlook the lake, just love it here xxx

Took a boat trip of over 2 hours, sights were impressive. Lots of thing of interest on the shore @ the main harbor area. Give some thought to spending several hours just strolling in the area.
