Use the Mouette bus/boat ride to cross from the left to the right bank of Geneva. It’s quick and fun, great views of the city. Feels like a summer holiday! Schedule attached

Really enjoyed seeing the Jet de l'eau. This lake is perhaps the cleanest lake I have seen in Europe and with a mountain back drop , very beautiful. Due to its location the city centre is only moments away, making it very accessible.

We went in early December and the weather was cool and sunny. It was a nice walk along the waterway and there were many seagulls, swans and ducks. The water is clean and clear and whole place is beautiful and scenic.

This lake is not only huge but beautiful. Surrounded by so many amazing towns and the water is unbelievably clear. You can get around a lot of the Geneva parts by water boat.
