We had miles of walking in the brisk breeze blowing from the north. Beautiful marinas, historic buildings line the lakeside, lovely views and even could Mont Blanc today!

Nice place for a walk or a boat ride. The view to the city is really nice. and is also a good spot for a running exercise or bike ride.

A lot of public boats, which are free for tourists. When it the weather is bright, you can have nice view. Walk at the boulevard and you will relax!

I like walking around the lake during evenings. Sunset creates colourful environment. There is lighthouse in the middle and a fountain which can be reached from two different shores of the lake.

The Water Jet is a great sight to see and photograph. It runs most days all day long except if high winds.
