One of Western Europe's largest bodies of water, Lake Geneva sits on the northern side of the Alps. Shared by Switzerland and France, the lake serves as one of the continent's most popular year-round travel destinations, its pristine natural areas a favorite stomping ground for both hikers and skiers. The Swiss side of the lake features a string of picturesque cities, the largest of which is Geneva. This city serves as a hub for paddle steamer cruises, providing a slow but scenic way of connecting to other ports on the lake. After visiting the region's old wineries, castles, and thermal baths, head to one of the lake's tranquil beaches, backed by rugged mountain scenery and shady woodlands.

  • We stoped by and there are many tourism boats. I would say that it's a beautiful lake and quite big. But there is nothing more I can say.

  • The lake feels like the heart of the city, being a main focal point and life revolving around it with it as a stunning backdrop. We enjoyed the lake during our weekend stay by walking alongside it...
