Natural Beauty at its finest

You can't beat this place for a stroll especially when it's not peak time and busy with tourists. It's surreal and makes you dream of living along the edges of this beautiful lake.

Anywhere everywhere this lake is beautiful. From Geneva it's a great view especially the fountain. It's a massive lake over 90miles long.

How can I write a review of the LAKE?! Well, I think I can though as this is the place to take a walk, to calm down, to meditate, to think about the beauty of your life (in this place your life can't be ugly!). I had a chance to take a boat trip on the lake last time I... More

A must seen when you're in Geneva. It's only visible during daylight. Geneva friendly-user transit system makes the trip to it easy, plus most hotels give you a free transit card for the length of your stay.
