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.

Winter, too, is a good time to go, where mountain hikes make way for winter sports like skiing and snowboarding, and fondue cafes and lantern-lit lakeside scenes transform the ambience of the city (think cosy, hearty vibes).

Culture is another highlight, and Geneva’s offering holds up very well in comparison with other cities in Europe. There are the gorgeous St Pierre Cathedral's scenic towers, paintings by Renoir in the Musée d'Art et d'Histoire and the Patek Philippe Museum's Swiss clock-making exhibits to name but a few.

As you’ll notice wandering around Geneva, there’s an international feel to the city – which is no surprise given that it’s home to a serious number of international organisations. This is another reason to visit, with the likes of the United Nations’ headquarters, World Health Organisation and the World Trade Organisation offering fascinating tours.

*ATOL (Air Travel Organiser's Licence) is a financial protection scheme for package holidays: It provides support to consumers in the event their holiday provider collapses. Booking with an ATOL holder ensures that you won't be left out of pocket and you won't be left stranded abroad. All package holidays compared using TravelSupermarket are protected by ATOL.

ABTA (Association of British Travel Agents) offers similar cover for packages booked with its members. However, while ATOL predominantly covers flight-based packages, ABTA covers non-flight based holidays (such as rail and cruise) and linked travel arrangements. If you are unsure whether or not your trip is covered by ABTA, check with your provider.
