The most beautiful spots of Geneva


The Jardin anglais

The dance of the swans against the backdrop of the Jet d'Eau. The Jardin anglais, home to the famous Flower Clock and 12,000 flowers, is also a must-see spot to admire the harbour and take amazing photos. The lake stretches out to the horizon and the Jet d'Eau is a source of great delight rising to 140 m. Swans, too, know how to be admired by spinning attractively, often in search of a small piece of bread.


La Perle du Lac 

Where Mont Blanc emerges. How about a stroll in a wonderful park with views of the lake and the mountains as far as the eye can see? When the weather is clear, Mont Blanc is unveiled, looming mightily on the horizon. Tranquillity and nature await you here, and in all weathers and seasons, you will dream about it with pleasure while sitting on a bench.


St. Peter's Cathedral

The best place for taking photos at panoramic views of Geneva. Historical treasure of the old town, St. Peter’s Cathedral boasts a breathtaking panorama. Let us assure you, the effort to climb the 157 steps that lead to the top of the towers is rewarded with an incredible 360° panorama of the city and the lake.


The Rue Etienne Dumont in the old town

This is the best view of the cathedral. Arriving at the Place Bourg de Four from Rue Etienne Dumont offers the most charming panorama of the cathedral in the heart of the old town with medieval architecture. A good tip is the guided tour of the old town, shedding light on the secrets it holds!


La Jonction

At the confluence of two rivers which come from different places, have neither the same colour nor the same speed. The Arve and the Rhône are two rivers that do not look alike yet come together in Geneva to become one. Make sure not to miss the impressive sight of these two rivers meeting at La Jonction.


Mont Salève

A panorama in the wilderness, just few minutes from Geneva. No, you’re not dreaming. Just a few bus stops from the centre and a five-minute cable car ride later, you find yourself at the top of the mountain! A magical view of Geneva and its surroundings awaits you. Hiking, paragliding, mountain biking or cross-country skiing in winter will meet the needs of sports lovers without a doubt on this getaway!


The Bains des Pâquis (Pâquis Baths): 360° view

A 360° panoramic view of the lake, the Jet d’Eau, the harbour and St. Peter’s Cathedral, what a delight! Especially while enjoying a good lunch or fondue round the wood stove! The Bains des Pâquis (Pâquis baths), a genuine peninsula on the lake, have always been a joy for Genevans and visitors alike. A favoured spot for bathers in summer, while in winter a famous place in Geneva for a good fondue. It’s not to be missed, that's for sure!
