“Clean, beautiful lake”
Reviewed June 22, 2014

The lake was huge, and there were white tops on the waves, as it was a windy day. Yet the water was very clean and clear, and warm enough to swim in mid-June. Very accessible to the public - we went there from the Botanical Gardens, which were also very beautiful. The panoramic views were spectacular.

“Beautiful”
Reviewed June 22, 2014 via mobile

Lake Geneva is a beautiful attraction. I got to see the lake at its fullest on a boat tour in Geneva. You get a great view of the surrounding area, whether it is the city or the Alps. Definitely a sight to see.

Nice ferry rides across lake. very beautiful. also people were swimming as weather was warm. The water was very clear. Loved the fountain - reminded me of home (Canberra) where we have a very similar one.

“Largest fountain in front”
Reviewed June 21, 2014

Geneva is a wonderful city. So neat and well maintained. The first thing comes to the mind is the wonderful and well spread out lake. It is quite huge. The fountain in the lake is the largest and is a wonderful sight to watch as well capture in the camera. There is also a garden in which there is a huge clock which is an attractive photo stop destination. We all saw many heritage sites as well the current many international organization buildings. Overall a wonderful city.

“Great views”
Reviewed June 21, 2014 via mobile

A great place during summer time! Pick summer to visit, and stay in town. When flying away you often get a great view of the lake!
