Spend a city break in Geneva strolling or cycling along the shady banks of Lake Geneva. Or enjoy a cultural city break by touring a few of Geneva's art and history museums. In the evening, linger over warm pots of Swiss Gruyre cheese fondue.
Dining and unwinding on Geneva city breaks
During your city break to Geneva, it's worth splashing out on dinner at a Michelin-starred restaurant overlooking Lake Geneva, with a backdrop to die for. If you prefer something less formal, join trendy locals at restaurants around Place du March square for international favourites like pizza and burgers or Geneva's juicy langeoles pork sausages. Share a gooey Swiss fondue with friends in the Old Town, accompanied by local Chasselas white wine, or sample Geneva's cosmopolitan side with lamb couscous on Rue de Berne, where there are several Middle Eastern restaurants.
Special places to stay in Geneva
If you want an elegant hotel with all the trimmings for your city break, choose one right next to Lake Geneva, overlooking the yacht-packed harbour. You'll find hotels in medieval buildings along the cobblestone streets of the Old Town, and smaller, cheaper places near Cornavin train station. For peaceful city breaks stick to suburban Geneva.
Things to do on Geneva city breaks
Start your city break watching Geneva's Jet d'Eau water fountain dramatically spraying out of Lake Geneva. Wander round the oak trees of the English Garden, or trace the history of humanitarian aid at the interactive International Red Cross Museum. For a romantic end to your city break in Geneva, take a stroll along chestnut tree-lined Treille Promenade.
