  • The surrounding park is great for a picnic and just people watching. There are often street performers there that are fun to watch. My 1 year old loved the bubble man street performer.  more »
  • We visited the old town, but every evening in the City, we just had to be by the lake. The Jardin Anglais is the most greenery around the lake and right in the center of the lake front. There was a lo...  more »

  • This is one of my favourite lake side places to roam around in Switzerland. The lake view is excellent. The walk way is fantastic with a magnificent view of big water fountain of Geneva. During spring, there are lots of Tulip flowers here and there. There is a beautiful flower clock and a nice restaurant in the garden. There is a ship station and a mini tourist train station in the garden.
  • Full of aggressive young Arabs destroying the otherwise cozy ambiance. Asians are not visiting it anymore and neither do other tourists. You have a big problem Geneva! But you want it that way so you get it.
  • We can find such parks even in small cities also. But it's historical importance is quite remarkable. Spending time in the parks near the lake Geneva is extremely relaxing.
  • A wonderful place to enjoy the lake. We spent an hour or so here waiting for our train. A great place to watch people.
  • Very nice to take a stroll and enjoy the view with the jet d'eau

Where to stay in Geneva

In the elegant city of Geneva, a little shuteye doesn't come cheap. A number of relatively expensive hotels surround the lakefront, a prime location for visitors here; note that these tend to fill up for conferences and trade shows, so plan accordingly. More budget-minded travelers can look into options closer to the airport, which is a quick 15-minute ride on public transport into the city. While there a very few family-owned guesthouses and hotels, there are a handful of hostels--though these too are priced pretty steep. You can also find more affordable options in the outlying cities of Annemasse and Gaillard.
