  • A hike of no scale accessible to all which ends at the top with a magnificent view on Geneva and the annemassienne conurbation, the Jura chain and as a result of Ferdinand de Saussure on the massif of Mont Blanc. Possible variants that can lead you to the home of the Salève, and make you discover an Alpine biotope where cyclamen and rocks above the topmost pastures!

  • Climb that Hill hot stations is a lot of fun and worth the view. In the winter, it would be better to use the cable car, but snow also makes everything beautiful.

  • The Salève is worth a visit in any season. Either you drive to one of the many parking lots and taking a Runkurs or take a bus from Geneva. There is a cable car almost to the top. The restaurant at the radio tower is constantly changing the owner therefore is it time and times. At the radio tower is a great prospect and a wall of just over 200-300 meters. It has waived the railing. In winter, there is cross-country. The other time wonderful hiking trails. The caves are small and not particularly deep. The ascent over a zigzag - Zack - away should be when wet and snow let brings more broken bones. The food is good and not expensive, at least if you know French prices.
