Trip Moment Recommendations
#Lake Geneva Travel Recommendations for 2023 (Updated in Dec)
Crescent-shaped lake between 🇫🇷 and🇨🇭
Lake Geneva is considered as Central Europe’s largest lake between France and Switzerland. As your train moves nearer here, you will start to spot houses resembling French architecture rather than Swiss-style architecture.
Visitors usually enjoy the cruise to notable sights, including the emblem of the city of Geneva, the “Jet d’eau”, up to 140metre high eater fountain in the middle of the lake.
Geneva itself is a diplomatic hub with many luxury shops and cobbled old town. On the southern end, you can also visit the spa town and resort of Evian-les-Bains or Lausanne, Montreux and Vevey.
Beautiful Yvoire, France
#EuroTrip - Small French Medieval Village
Located on the border with Switzerland, Yvoire is a quaint and flowery medieval village in the south-eastern region of Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes in France. It is also situated on the French shores of Lake Geneva as well. Yvoire is also touted as one of France’s most beautiful villages, locally nicknamed the “Pearl/Gem of Lake Geneva”.
The preserved and fortified village is famous for its floral display too and has been awarded by the International Trophy for Landscape and Horticulture.
Take a walk along the village's historical cobblerstoned narrow streets and proceed to the beautiful waterfront with splendid views of Lake Geneva as well. Enjoy the magnificent sights the village and the waterfront has to offer. Remember to take tons of insta shots too !
Yvoire is now ranked as one of the International Laureates of Floral Decorations, and is a member of the Association of the Most Beautiful Villages of France.
A speciality of Yvoire is their filet de perche from Lake Geneva. So do give it a try when you visit. All the restaurants there serve it lol. If you are into duck foie gras and cheese, you are in for a treat too !
A Moment In Swiss
It was a trip which was so memorable that it feels like a dream. Make me work harder to go to more places like this #awesomepic #switzerland
Lake Geneva is charming day or night!
The splendid Lake of Geneva makes a wonderfully chic promenade - the scenery changes depending on which side of the lake you are on! Great for morning jogs or evening walks. There is also a city beach for picnics and swimming. The powerful water jet in the middle of the lake shoots impressively skywards at 200km/hour!
Geneva ‘the peace Capital’ and it is..
In Geneva, Geneva Lake is one of the most attractions. This point of photography is also quite beautiful, but not too excellent.
short yet so much fun travel with volleyball teams
Why do so many people want to come here? ❓ Is it just because of the swans? 🐣
A country blessed by God 👰, with picturesque scenery, suitable for travel all year round ✈️. The northern city of Basel has world-class contemporary art and architecture, while the western Lake Geneva is dotted with many castles, villages, and wine 🍸 estates. The central region of the Jungfrau area is an epic outdoor paradise, the eastern national park is magnificent and grand, and the southern glaciers are breathtaking. In addition, major cities such as Zurich, Lucerne, Geneva, and Bern are perfect for experiencing the culture and humanities.
Located on the shores of Lake Geneva in the French-speaking area of Switzerland, Montreux is truly a super suitable place for vacation! We went there in March and it was really warm when the sun was out, feeling like we had entered summer early. The lakeside is full of various kinds of flowers 💐, and the richness of the flower species really amazed me. It's especially suitable for taking a walk 🚶 along the lake with friends or loved ones, or choosing a favorite flower bed to sunbathe and chat.
In the midst of the rippling waves 💦, the clear and transparent lake water seems to blend into the white snow on the top of the Alps. The white gravel at the bottom of the lake reflects the moving ripples caused by the gentle breeze and the flapping of water birds 🕊️.
Groups of swans are playing on this transparent and bright sapphire 💎, their smooth and delicate wings shining brightly in the sunlight. I think I have found the fairyland Swan Lake 🏞️ from the fairy tales.
In Geneva, the summer☀ is not hot, but the winter is very cold💨. The southern region of the Alps🗻 has a Mediterranean climate, which is relatively dry in summer and warm and humid in winter. The transitional climate on the north side of the Alps is very obvious, with a mix of mild and humid temperate oceanic climate and cold winter and hot summer temperate continental climate from west to east. Some high-altitude areas have a plateau mountain climate. The climate here is very diverse, so the best time🕐 to visit is relatively scattered.
Lake Geneva is the largest lake in the Swiss Alps and a top tourist destination for many people.
When you come to Geneva, you must take a stroll by the lake, in fact, you've been by the lake the whole time~~~
Sitting on a boat and getting up close with swans on the rippling lake is also a great choice. And don't forget to visit the must-see attraction in Geneva, the over 140-meter-high Jet d'Eau fountain visible from all over the city.
The beauty of Lake Geneva.
Lake Geneva is the first lake that tourists see, and of course, accommodation will also be chosen in the hotels by the lake, because Geneva is a city built around the lake.
The lake water is very clear and cold, and its source is a snow mountain that accumulates snow all year round.
Lake Geneva is the largest lake in Switzerland, with swans swimming on the surface and searching for food either from passersby or in the water. Some water birds also freely perch on the cables and iron pillars in the water at the docks and ports.
The Jet d'Eau is a sight in Geneva, with water jets that are much higher than the city's buildings. Often, a rainbow 🌈 can be seen due to the fountain.
My journey's best - the most pleasant afternoon.
Many times, the journey is rushed, rushing for planes, trains, and business hours... Everything seems like a rush, and being able to stop and enjoy a slow time seems like a luxury. Looking back on my journey, there were many hurried moments, some leisurely and relaxed, but the most pleasant memory for me was spending an afternoon by Lake Geneva and the old city.
From Nice, France, flying to Geneva was already in the afternoon, but the good weather there still didn't spare its golden sunshine. Everything was covered with a warm yellow coat under the radiance, making Geneva, which was originally busy, reflect a pleasant and peaceful era. Lake Geneva is also a good place for locals to relax. It was already October in the golden autumn, and although the sunshine was warm, there was still a bit of chill when the wind blew, and the lake water was quite cold. But there were still handsome guys and beautiful girls sunbathing by the lake. Nearby, there were groups of people, clear lake water, leisurely swans, rainbow fountains soaring into the sky in the distance, European-style buildings by the lake, snow-capped peaks on the horizon, everything between humans and nature was so harmonious!
I also love the old town of Geneva so much. The spire of the cathedral, the famous long bench, the drinking fountain at the street corner, the old-fashioned shops, and the greeting "bonjour" from a stranger coming towards me make me want to stop and sit in a corner, watching people come and go, watching time pass by.
In the blink of an eye, 12 years have passed. I have traveled to more countries and cities, but this afternoon in Geneva is deeply rooted in my memory. I think, one day I will return there, sit by the lake and watch time pass by.
visiting some Geneva’s magnificent attractions on the cloudy day is very impressive. Highly recommended. #mytripvlog #awesomepic

The first lake is only in Geneva!?
Lake Geneva, also known as Lake Geneva, is the largest of the alpine lakes. It was formed by the Rhone Glacier. And it will not freeze forever, Lake Geneva is also the world's largest mountain lake, it links two countries, Switzerland and France, about one-third of Lake Geneva is in France, the lake is built very Many attractions, but the most striking is the huge artificial fountain, so many people came here to be able to photograph it. The artificial fountain was originally built in 1891, when it was sprayed to a height of only 90 meters. Since its rebuilding in 1958, it has been sprayed to 140 meters. Of course, in addition to tourists, many famous writers and great poets praise and sing it. Henry James called it "a surprisingly blue lake"; Byron compared it to a crystal mirror, "with the nutrients and air needed for contemplation"; Balzac described it as "love." Synonym." The current Lake Geneva has become a landmark, becoming a punching point that people must come.

Mirabo Gold Cup BOL D'OR MIRABAUD
Europe's largest lake sailing competition. Since 1939, the Bol d'Or Mirabaud Regatta has been held on Lake Geneva, attracting thousands of spectators and hundreds of sailors each time. Visitors can see the spectacular start-up ceremony in Geneva, and the highlights of the competition can be seen at various locations along the lake. The boat travels from Geneva to La Bourveret and returns for 123 km.
Taking the boat from the town of Nyon in Switzerland to France is the most convenient and best way to get around. In addition to allowing us to enter the French territory of our trip to Switzerland, we can also appreciate the beauty of Lake Geneva from another perspective. Of course, I can't avoid it, let's experience it. It is also a bridge for the friendly exchange between the people of Switzerland and France.
As the cruise ship slowly passed, the French town of Ivar, with its medieval simplicity and elegance, is getting closer and closer to us. I never thought I could step on France. Looking back, the Swiss town has left us and slowly disappeared into a whole piece of mountains.
Lake Geneva, made up of snow-capped alpine icebergs, is also known as Lake Geneva in the French-speaking region. It is the largest of the 1,498 lakes in Switzerland and the largest natural lake in Western Europe.
Walking along the shores of Lake Geneva is a great place for Swiss people to spend their holidays, and I am just walking around the lake like the locals, feeling the tranquility of this trip. Walking along the shores of Lake Geneva, you can see that there are many people reading books at the lake, or a family gathering here, and even some people will run here. It is a very leisurely pace of life.
