Les Bains des Paquis

Les Bains des Paquis is a recreation area situated on the shores of Lake Geneva. Several attractions and activities are offered at this location. During winter, one can bathe at their traditional baths and spas, while in the summer, the lakeshore offers brilliant swimming opportunities. You can also enjoy a lakeside meal at Les Buvette des Bains, or go for a relaxing massage. A great place to relax and rejuvenate.

Old City (Vieille Ville)

With a pleasant combination of art galleries, bistros, bric-a-brac and antique shops, the Old City area is popular with tourists and Geneva's younger crowd. You can easily mix shopping with a bit of sightseeing in the area. Art galleries show a surprising range of styles from ancient Chinese and Japanese pots, primitive to impressionism, and all the while in attractive, bright spaces. While the medley of tiny shops makes the Old City particularly appealing for impulse purchases, a large department store in this area provides a good selection of necessities. Less hectic than other parts of the city, it is the perfect place to browse at a leisurely pace and then enjoy a cheese fondue or other regional cuisine. Pause to view the splendid Hôtel de Ville and Maison Tavel along the way. Shoppers can also admire the beautiful architecture and charming ancient streets that beg to be explored.

St. Pierre Cathedral

Having aged gracefully over more than 850 years, this magnificent cathedral lies nestled in Geneva's Old Town. Its interiors set alight by chandeliers, this cathedral boasts ornate chapels like the Chapel of Maccabee adorned with Gothic frescoes, and side aisles bearing tombstones of various luminaries of the church. In addition, its majestic capitals draw influences from the Romanesque and Gothic styles of architecture and are some of the largest in the whole of Switzerland. Not only is this cathedral a solemn dedication to Saint Pierre, but it is also a stirring emblem of Roman Protestantism. A steep climb through a labyrinthine spiral staircase leads to two imposing towers which serve as an outstanding vantage point over the shimmering blue Geneva Lake, charming brown-roofed buildings and the iconic Jet d'Eau. North of this grand structure lies the extensive International Museum of Reformation, which is a stirring insight into theology, and what life looked like after the reformation.

Victoria Hall

Victoria Hall, built at the end of the 19th Century in honor of the English queen, is a magnificent concert hall that is both luxurious and acoustically brilliant. Built for classical concerts, the hall is the venue of choice for city-based as well as visiting orchestra groups across the country. The ornate decorative elements and regal ambiance of the hall enhance the performances hosted here. A wide range of cultural events are conducted here throughout the year, which you can't afford to miss. Visit the website for details about upcoming performances.

Lake Geneva

The pride of Central Europe, and the largest water body in Switzerland, this crescent-shaped lake is lined with star-studded attractions around its shimmering shoreline that straddles both France and Switzerland. Also referred by the French as 'Léman', for 'large water', the Chablais and Bernese alps wrap the gleaming southern and eastern shores of the lake, a geographic bonus that ensures spellbinding views from every corner. The mesmerizing combination of lake and alpine scenery is more pronounced toward the eastern tip of the lake, between the communes of Vevey and Villeneuve. On the far northern shore, the sides of the mountain are delicately laced with a grove of trees, at the foothills of which idyllic towns and quaint villages lie nestled. Blessed with spectacular views of terraced vineyards that stripe the hills between Lausanne and Vevey, Lake Geneva also attracts a set of enthusiastic oenophiles every year. Under stark blue skies, Lake Geneva is at its resplendent best in the summertime, when Belle Epoque boats lazily ply the lake's shores, and annual regattas like Tour du Lac and yacht racing festivals take advantage of its scenic backdrop.

Le Jet d'Eau

Paris has the Eiffel Tower, New York the Statue of Liberty, and Geneva the Jet d'Eau. Resting at the convergence of Lake Geneva and the Rhone, Jet d'Eau is one of the most recognizable emblems of the city. The original fountain was installed in the late-19th Century not far from the current location, where the fountain's ambitious plumes soar as if to embrace the sky. Although built for practical purposes, this fountain has now come to command much appreciation for its ability to augment Geneva's cityscape, and to leave visitors gazing in awe at its sheer glory. With its gushing waters soaring to the height of 140 meters (459 feet) every second, Jet d'Eau has become an epitome of dynamism to the people of Geneva. An engineering feat par excellence, the fountain metamorphoses into a dazzling, luminescent wonder come night.
