I loved the iconic sight of the lakes water fountain and the fact you could get some great views on the water taxi. The place itself is expensive. We had a hot dog, burger and a drink, which came to nearly 40 euros

If the weather is good, take a boat trip. If you don't want to do a long trip, think about using the little ferries that go back and forth across the lake (les mouettes). It costs the same as a bus ticket (you can use your bus ticket if you still have time left on it) and it's a very... More

Great place for an evening walk. The view is stunning and it is such a peaceful place, we stopped to feed the swans. It was a beautiful end of a great day for us.

I really liked the view over the Lake Geneva. When we were there it was a bit cold, but it was still a nice stroll on the promenad beside the lake.

The lake is stunning, azure blue when the sun is shining and with an average temperature of between 21 and 23 during the height of summer it's perfect for a refreshing dip, just mind the duck fleas! They are only present in the water that doesn't move around the shore lines, I'd recommend swimming at the Bain Des Paquix- a... More

This is a very interesting location to visit, for the many towns arounf this lave in Switzerland and France, for example Geneva, Nyon, Lausanne, Vevey, Montreaux, Thonon, Evian, Yvoire. Each os these have sometnbing interesting to show, and many others in between. One can go around by car, or take cruises on the lake.

If your in Geneva the lake is A must to see. Walk along the quai and take photos in different angle. You cannot say that you've been to Genéve without seeing and walking along the lakeside.

I spent the majority of my time during a recent visit to Geneva walking around this fine site. There are multiple angles and objects worthy of photographs so you can never get bored. There are several places where parks are next to the lake so they make great places to rest and relax, and there are dozens of benches and... More
