It is easy to enjoy life in Geneva. Uniquely situated right at the Savoy Alps and the ski area of Les Portes du Soleil, Lake Geneva is the second largest inland lake in Central Europe after Lake Balaton in Hungary. We recommend a boat cruise on Lake Geneva to visit the beautiful cities around the lake: Vevey, Montreux, Lausanne or take a trip to France – there are beautiful views all along the way.

Spend your spring holidays at Lake Geneva. There is still some snow on the top of the mountains, but the weather in Geneva is like early summer. This is the best time to go sightseeing: the Cathedral of St. Pierre, the United Nations buildings or the Flower Clock at the lakeside – the city’s landmark. Enjoy relaxing holidays in Switzerland!
