Not far from our hotel in Annemasse
Our hotel near Geneva is the ideal place to explore the capital of peace. Just 10 km from Annemasse, you will discover the unique and peaceful atmosphere surrounding Lake Geneva. Geneva is known for its unique peace and serenity in the streets of the city with its fine buildings and major retailers. Take a leisurely stroll around the city, and enjoy one of the 40 museums the city has to offer, including the Natural History Museum, the Geneva Ethnography Museum (MEG), the Patel Philippe Museum which houses the most prestigious creations from fine Genevan clockmakers, and the Palace of Nations, one of the largest international organisations.
Then head into the old town centre. There you will find yourself on the square in front of Saint Peter’s Cathedral. The monumental cathedral retraces the city’s history going back as far as 375 when the first stones were laid. Take a deep breath and head up the 157 steps to the top of the northern tower where you can enjoy a 360° view of the city.
Enjoy the view of the rooftops and the massive Lake Geneva in the background. Head back down to ground level to admire the monumental water fountain. The symbol of Geneva springs 140 m up in the air from the harbour. However, to experience the real Swiss magic, be sure to taste the city’s chocolates and patisseries, for instance by Rohr.
