  • As such, Geneva or Geneva, is a beautiful and modern, but in my opinion with very few tourist attractions, in such a way that you can give you a good idea of it in 1-1.5 days. In this context, and among other ideas we discover the possibility of accessing this "viewpoint" using the typical cable car that continues to be very attractive medium to climb to high points. The truth seemed good idea to start our visit to Geneva, although I must admit that it sounds paradoxical to be able to observe it from French territory, but is a fast option and practice give you a good idea of the dimension of Geneva and because not, take your first postcard of a magnificent panoramic view. At the central station you can search for the 8 'Bus' but those who say that it goes in direction Veyrier Doune, something as well. There is no loss, because you have low at the end of the route, which takes about 20 to 25 minutes to arrive (free!... also by passes that the hotels give guests for transport public). If you not want to pay with the cable car, advise to take provision of Euros, because even if your reference is Geneva and crosses the 'virtual' border only by 2 streets, they are offended and... do not accept Swiss francs! To reach the cable car station walking 15 minutes well-signposted and make runs every 15 minutes, the basis of arrival is the level lower, where you can already enjoy the view of Geneva and even something to eat. Also you can see practitioners of "paragliding" plunge over the cliff. You also have the option to access other levels of the mirador, climbing a path, which may require significant physical exertion, and that not I thought it was indispensable. An attraction that can require at least 3 to 4 hours, including transfers. For my one good site to visit.

  • Nice view on the White Mountain and Lake Geneva. Ideal for walking, the ascent via the cable car is a plus.

  • Took the 4-5 hour hike (not sure the exact trail) with a group on Saturday morning. It's a pretty intense hike and I definitely got a workout! (I consider myself to be fairly fit.) The views of Geneva...  more »
