Worth a visit! Absolutely breathtaking. Wasn't there on a clear day -- but I can only image what it looks like. The water is very clean an clear! I didn't have time to take a ferry, but I would like to go back and try it out on a warm day. :)

This is a stunning spot. Overlooked by mountains in the distance and the city close by. When in operation, the jet d'eau is quite a spectacle. You can take a train from Geneva, along by the lake, through Lausanne and out to Montreux. It doesn't have the charm of say, the Italian lakes but the scenery is as clean as... More

This park has been my favorite swimming spot in Geneva for many years, especially by the Perle du Lac restaurant and further down by the WTO. What amazing views on the city, jet d'eau and snow-covered Alps ... and all while swimming in clean water that is usually quite warm in the summer. Great place to meet up with friends... More

The lake is very clean, and the water is almost transparent in calm places! I swam in it during the summer, and it was very pleasant. I tire not of laying my eyes upon it every time I go to work, and I might say it's quite the soothing view.

Lake Geneva, aka Lac Leman is beautiful, no doubt. Not as nice as Lake Annecy which is close by, but bigger. Take the ferry across to the neighboring towns in France and enjoy the ride on the lake. Lovely!

Lake Geneva is an amazing place, it's not as expensive as it seems. If you are a traveler then you'll think the accommodation is expensive, but other than that you can get around really well. The airport has free train ticket machines to get to the city. Hostels hand out free transport tickets and the food is a similar price... More

One of the most beautiful scenery. It's a place where you can go and relax and spend quality time reflecting on life. The jet deau is just amazing.

I fell in love with Lec Leman (Lake Geneve) when I saw it for the first time in a November morning. The sky was black, the air was chill, the swans were there in green water and most of all Jet Deau. What a lovely place to wander about. I feel in love so deeply that I wanted to spend... More

Lake Geneva is a great experience. Pick the right weather, take a walk and let the magic happen. We did it this way and it was one of the best afternoons we had in 2014
