I really can't forget this beautiful lake with its first high fountain. People from some Swiss cities and from some French cities can enjoy the of around the o'clock. It's surrounded by hotels , restaurants, cafes , shops , and residential buildings. In the summer or in winter , always can breathe fresh air .

So I was in Geneva for work and had to take a train out to a near by town, fog and cloud resulted in me not being able to see across the lake. Was I in for a shock, when I took a taxi back to the station we turned a corner and there was a wow moment, what a... More

We did a small boat ride on this lake, and it was extremely serene. Do not miss the jet d'eau. We were lucky to enjoy under the gushing water just in time before the water was stopped.

This is the highlight of any trip to Geneva. This beautiful lake is a must-see. The views looking over the lake with the hills and mountains as backdrops are fabulous. Mon Repos Park is a particularly good vantage point as the lakeside is especially picturesque there. The trail along the lake in that park will afford several great looks. This... More

Beautiful even if the weather isn't. Great promenade to walk around lake, usually with many people enjoying the opportunity to be outside and admire spectacular flowers/gardens. Try rent a bicycle to allow you to explore further, so worth it!

As Switzerland is not located by the sea the lake of Geneva is a lake which gives the western part of Switzerland a bit of a sea feeling. It is a sea like in the fiords of Norway or similar. High mountains come down to the lake, ready for extraordinary pictures and nice rides on old passenger boats.

It's ever changing colours, mirror the weather and air, on windy days the waters turns its mood to a Mediterranean green blue on its edges by the coast. It's a delightful and smily view. You can take a Geneva cruise from port to port and lavishly have a delicious lake fera fish. It's worth visiting and taking photos from any... More

The lake cannot be missed if visiting Geneva (or Vaud or Evian or Valais for that matter). Just beautiful and very charming place to walk around and admire the views.
