Strolling along the lake promenade
The beauty of the old town
The Quay Mont Blanc, alongside Lake Geneva, is only a few minutes from the station and offers a spectacular view of the Lake and the Jet-D’eau fountain. An icon of the city, this water fountain is the tallest in the world, shooting water approximately 140 metres into the air. The Bain des Pâquis, on the western shore, draws visitors and locals alike, who flock to its unique bathing areas to enjoy a spectacular view on the lake or a sunbathe on the jetty. To reach the far bank of the lake, you can either cross via the Mont-Blanc Bridge and reach the Lake promenade or hop aboard one of the famous ‘Mouettes’, the yellow taxi shuttle boats from the Bain des Pâquis. The Mouettes operate between 4 different harbours, providing a lovely and convenient way to explore the city.
