Why go to Geneva

Often associated with business, bureaucracy and sky-high prices, Geneva doesn’t immediately come to mind when considering a city break. But look beyond its shiny exterior and you’ll discover a destination that is rich in other ways, from world-class culture to natural wonders.

Set where the River Rhône joins Lake Geneva and surrounded by the Alps, a Geneva city break is nothing short of beautiful – a theme that continues in the heart of the city itself. And it’s hard not to notice how clean and modern it is, which is an experience in itself!

If you like an outdoorsy holiday, Geneva is a top spot for an alternative summer break. The lake is a hotspot – of course – with locals and tourists heading to the banks to swim, sunbathe and picnic. You can also get out onto the water, to paddle board or sail. Landlubber? Make a beeline for the mountains for hiking.
