When to go to

Geneva

With fairly mild winters and warm summers, Geneva is the perfect destination for a city break no matter what time of year it is. With so many different activities on offer, the time you visit will simply depend on what you’re after. In summer, visitors flock to the city for the hiking, biking, swimming and more.

Why go to Geneva?

For its wealth of galleries and museums
Geneva is home to more than thirty brilliant museums and art galleries, including the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Museum and the Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art (MAMCO).

To explore the historic Old Town
The most conventionally scenic part of the city, Geneva’s Old Town is focused in the area surrounding the Cathédrale Saint-Pierre and the pedestrianised Place du Bourg-de-Four. Take a stroll along the promenade for incredible view of the distant Jura mountain range and the nearby Bastions park, before popping into some well-known independent boutiques and enjoying a meal in one of the numerous cafés and restaurants.

For some of the best shopping in Europe
The boutiques lining the Rue de Rive and Rue du Rhône are some of the most luxurious and extravagant on the continent. Browse the high-end clothes boutiques, watchmakers and jewellery shops, including L’Apollinaire, or pay a visit to Bon Génie.

If you’re looking for a more relaxed and diverse shopping experience, the Plainpalais Flea Market is a must-do. The largest outdoor flea market in Geneva, it sells everything, including antiques, records, vintage clothing, jewellery, furniture and more.

To use it as a base for exploring the surrounding countryside
No matter what the season, Geneva is the perfect base for exploring the surrounding countryside. Whether you’re looking to spend the summer boating, hiking, biking, or wine tasting in the stunning surrounding mountain ranges, or enjoy the winter on a famous Swiss ski vacation, Geneva offers easy access. If you’re in the city for a short time, short day trips to the nearby towns of Montreux, Chamonix and Lausanne are extremely popular.
