“Enjoy this great Palce”
Reviewed May 6, 2012

Lake Geneva has something peaceful to it. When the sun shines it is really beautiful. One can take a bus/Tram ticket for CHF 3.50 and enjoy a short crossing of the lake. There is a boat stop in front of the Kempinsky hotel where one can take a boat (Mouette Genevoise) to the other side of the Lake where the shopping streets are. It is always a pleasure to go on this short crossing (5 mn).

“Had a river-boat-day-tour on the lake”
Reviewed May 3, 2012

The weather was excellent, and that helped a lot, of course:-) The boats were made in the early 1920's, they look superbe, as did the city from the sea-side.

“Just beautiful”
Reviewed April 25, 2012

Nice huge lake with very diverse areas from big cities such as Geneva, Lausanne, Vevey and Montreux for the swiss side and Evian and Thonon for the French side changing to little historical villages such as Yvoire or even Coppet and Nyon
Surrounded by beautiful landscape with valleys, fields, mountains - just mind-blowing.
The swiss perfection. Enjoy boat tours, swimming or just sitting in a little typical swiss cafe or restaurant at the shore like in Tougue. Everybody should at least once in his life visit Lake Geneva and it's surroundings
