Geneva, the second largest Swiss city

Geneva is the second most important city of Switzerland. It is located alongside Lake Geneva, Europe’s largest lake, at the foot of the Jura Mountains. The city of Geneva is home to a number of headquarters to several international organisations such as the United Nations (UN) and the Red Cross. This makes Geneva one of the few global cities with an important financial centre. Geneva is also a popular tourist destination mainly for two reasons. Geneva is a dream city thanks to a unique setting and a magnificent view of Mont-Blanc, the highest peak in Europe. The countryside, the perfect place for outdoor activities, is only a few minutes away from the city. Geneva is the best starting point to visit rest of Switzerland thanks to an excellent public transport connection.


Wander in the Old Town to discover its winding little streets, flower-adorned fountains, hidden corners and picturesque squares. Continue to the Saint Pierre Cathedral and stop at the Maison Tavel, the museum of Old Geneva. Don’t miss the Place Neuve, where you will see a monument of the General Dufour on the saddle of his horse. Other landmarks not to be missed are the Grand Théâtre opera house, the Rath museum and the Conservatory of Music, which are all located near the Place Dufour. Take a stroll up to the esplanade of Cologny and enjoy the magnificent view of Geneva and the lakefront. Hop aboard a Mouette, a small yellow boat that will take you across the lake. You will get a close view of the famous Jet d’eau fountain, which reaches a height of 140 metres and is a symbol of Geneva!

If you get peckish, drop in one of numerous cafés and restaurants which are located in the Old Town.

If you are in Geneva, it is the best time to have a close look at what the world’s top brand watchmakers have to offer. In the city you will find retail shops which offer some famous brands like Tissot, Tag Heuer, Patek Phillipe, Frank Muller, Swatch, Omega and Piaget, just to name a few.

  • "Comfortable and Spacious Seat "    
    I do like the seat, it is spacious and comfy. However, i do experience poor attitude from the station officer at Leipzig. It is my first time to Europe, first time taking Europe trains and i do not speak english so i need help as to which platform and the train system works but the officer on duty then refuses to help me because he can't speak english. I am disappointed. However, the seat was comfy and the train is clean.  
  • "spectacular views, fair price"    
    The journey was fairly priced for the distance crossing borders. It took us through some spectacular landscapes. The carriage was clean and quite comfortable, but the toilet was a mess from the beginning of the journey and not in the condition I would expect on a TGV train.  
  • "Paris to Geneva"    
    Included a meal which was a surprise  
  • "A little help would have been "    
    Overall a very positive experience. Two things that would have made it excellent....a more positive and friendly attitude from the attendant serving snacks and a better means of storing luggage...carrying large and heavy bags up and down the stairs was both awkward and difficult.  
  • "Every thing goes smoothly"    
    thanks for all sttaf  
  • "fantastic ride"    
    I love the trains of Europe. This was our first fast train and it did not dissapoint... thanks for a great ride!!!!  
  • "Nice traintravel"    
    Down along the rivers Rohne and l'Isere from Geneva to Grenoble. The train was like other trains. Ok comfort and accurat according to the time-table. The view fram the train-windows is wonderful, but are some of the time hidden behind threes. All inn all we enjoyed our trip.  
  • "Enjoyable and comfortable trip"    
    There was a slight hitch when we boarded the train as our coach was locked and the conductor said we could sit anywhere on the next coach!? And how were we going to lug our suitcases up to the upper section? Then he kindly let us all put our luggage in the original coach and locked it to secure our luggage. After we settled down in our seats, it was smooth sailing from then on. The trip was quick, the service from the staff efficient and seamless. We were served lunch and were offered newspapers. Three hours went by real fast. I thoroughly enjoyed this trip and will recommend this to everyone.  
  • "Food"    
    Everything abort the trip was fine. My only wish would be that the food was improved.  
  • "Plane vs car vs train"    
    I enjoyed this trip very much and will probably do it more often.  
  • "Great Train Journey!"    
    Everyone should try this trip at least once. It could not be better. The train left as scheduled, the staff on board was very helpful, the train clean and comfortable and with plenty of space to accommodate our luggage. Beautiful views all the way to Geneva.  
  • "Very good"    
    Punctuality Comfortable  
  • "Good Service"
