Geneva is a beautiful city in Switzerland framed by the gorgeous Alps and Jura mountains near Lac Léman. The base for Europe’s United Nations and the Red Cross, Geneva, is the global headquarters for diplomacy and banking. This global city is full of stunning architecture, culture and amazing sights. 

Weather & Best Time to Visit

The best time to visit Geneva is during the months of July and August, which is peak season. It is busy with prices a bit higher than usual but totally worth it to enjoy the great weather and outdoor activities. In Winter Geneva is covered in snow and the skiing is excellent. The Christmas markets are also popular with travellers who love the cold. 

Keep this in mind when you book your flight to Geneva that will land at the international Geneva Airport. There are many great Air Canada flights to Geneva and other exciting major European destinations.

Things To See & Do

The old town is always a charming start to any trip you make to a destination you haven’t visited before. Geneva’s old town is quite the stunner with quaint art galleries and the well-preserved Cathedral St. Pierre to visit. Climb the tower at the cathedral to admire the city views, then wander the charming streets in one of Europe’s largest old towns. 

Geneva has a great collection of fascinating museums to visit, including the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Museum, the International Museum of the Reformation and the Patek Philippe Museum. Take some time to soak up the culture and history of these three not-to-be-missed museums and then take your pick from many more in the city. History lovers will also love Place Bourg-de-Four in the old town. This picturesque old square dating back to the Middle Ages is the perfect place to grab a coffee or beer and watch the locals go about their daily lives.

The Geneva Water Fountain (The Jet d’Eau) is a huge jet of water that fires out of Geneva Lake. The spectacular sight can be seen from the land or a boat during a scenic cruise. There are many cruises on the lake, from one-hour sightseeing trips to lengthier dinner cruises that start in the late afternoon and come back in the evening.

The food scene in Geneva is vibrant, with many high-end restaurants, including an impressive collection of Michelin-starred restaurants all over the city. Take a food tour that includes stops at a chocolate and cheese factory and learn why the Swiss are so famous for these foods that are so delicious and decadent. That might trigger your desire to go shopping because the Swiss are also known for their fine taste and excellent design and fashion skills. Head to the rue du Rhône, where you will find designer boutiques stocking world-class brands. If you always desired a classic and stylish watch, this is the place to make the big purchase. 

Winemaking is an important industry, with the area being ideal for grape growing. There are many nice wineries to visit where you can learn about the winemaking process and try some Swiss wine. Wine loves might like a private tour and you can even see the third biggest vineyard in the country by booking through Geneva Tourism. There are also vineyard hikes that take up to six hours, covering 26 km of grape-laden lands and village areas. 

At nighttime, Geneva comes alive with a vibrant nightlife, including restaurants, bars, clubs, live music, concerts, and shows. In winter, Geneva is a great place for skiing, snowboarding, sledding, and other winter sports.
