I fancy taking a walk.
If the weather’s good, there’s nothing better than getting out in the fresh air with a lovely walk around the lake. To make sure you don’t miss out on any of the wonderful lakescapes, we suggest you dedicate about 2 hours to your walk. If you’re coming from Palexpo, take the bus to the station and then walk along rue du Mont-Blanc, which will take you to the lake side. When you get to the water, walk along the banks and breath in the view over the Water Fountain. As you continue walking, and if it’s a clear day, you’ll get a stunning view over the Mont-Blanc mountains. Wander on until Perle du Lac park with its delicate floral parterres that are in bloom all year round. From here you can jump on La Mouette, the famous Genevan boat-bus. You can use a bus ticket or Geneva Transport Card from your hotel to get onboard. These boat-buses crisscross the lake from different stops, offering you a unique vantage point of the lake. You’ll be getting aboard at Perle du Lac in the direction of Port-Noir. A lovely (and quick) way to discover both sides of the lake, the journey will treat you to views over the beautiful waters of Lake Geneva and the cathedral overlooking the historic centre. When you reach the other side of the lake, walk back towards the centre through the English Garden with its famous flower clock. If you’ve still got some time to spare, climb up to the Old Town and enjoy a hot chocolate on place Bourg-de-Four, a historic square that will take you back in time.
