We had only an hour or so to be here, so unfortunately couldn't take the boat cruise. However, spending time by the lake side itself was a beautiful experience. The jet d'eau looks beautiful and is visible from many far off places in Geneva. I...More

Everyone talks about Lake Geneva like a great wonder and maybe because it was a fairly dull day, I found it pretty uninspiring. The lake in the Lausanne side is much prettier in my opinion. I suppose in a good day it would look nicer

The lake is breath taking. In the evening we had huge swans coming up to us at the waters edge. Absolutely beautiful.

A lovely place to walk on a clear summer day. Nice parks, nice views and a few pricey food stalls ($5 cokes).

Geneva has a beautiful waterfront with a towering water spout that captures the focal point of the lake.
