The Geneva Lake is right in front of my hotel, I and I am able to take photos of the lake from my balcony. It is more beautiful than the pictures and YouTube videos I saw before arriving in Geneva. I took a walk on the side of the Lake. It was really nice.

The lake is beautiful. Blue, clean, and if you happen to be here during a nice sunny and warm day (like us!), then you can take a stroll in the park and maybe find a bench to sit down and enjoy the view. There was quite a lot of people enjoying the scenery as well when we were there but... More

The "Geneva Lake" is not his real name. IT's Leman lake but since it end in Genava and it's and the town is surrounding it, I think people start calling it the Geneva lake.

These which are not are... More

We took a short boat ride across the lake with the swans and ducks what a joy. The fountain is all you can image and looks great with a setting sun.

If you are staying in Geneva, you must make time for an early morning or evening walk or run along the grand Lake Geneva. IT captures the soul of the place, with boats tied up on the various piers, birds swimming along the shore, and flowers and trees providing solace. There are paths along large swaths of the lake, so... More
