Geneva Guide

What are Geneva’s most famous landmarks and monuments?

Jet d’Eau

Jet d’Eau is a fountain that shoots 140 metres (460 feet) into the air from Lake Geneva. It’s one of the city’s most recognisable icons and a must-see for visitors who plan a Swiss holiday with airfare to Geneva. The fountain can be seen from many spots around Lake Geneva, and some of the best viewpoints include Promenade du Lac in the Jardin Anglais, Bains des Pâquis, and a boardwalk that extends from Quai Gustave-Ador and goes straight past the base of the fountain. See Jet d’Eau during the day, then head back at night while holidaying on return flights to Geneva to see it beautifully illuminated.

Palais des Nations

Palais des Nations is the European headquarters of the United Nations and it’s a fascinating place to visit while holidaying on flights to Geneva. Tour the Palais des Nations for an inside look at the everyday running of the United Nations and to learn about the current topics on the UN’s agenda. Chat with UN employees and see rooms inside the Palais des Nations, such as the Assembly Hall, Council Chamber and Salle des Pas Perdus. Note that the exact places you’ll see on the tour change regularly, based on which UN meetings coincide with your cheap flights to Geneva.

Mont Salève

Switzerland is nestled within the Alps, so there are some incredible mountains to add to your bucket list after booking airfare to Geneva. The peak of Mont Salève is located just outside the city (on the French side of the border) and it’s one of the most accessible mountains from Geneva. Make your way to the top of Mont Salève by catching a cable car that travels 1,100 metres (3,609 feet) to the summit. From there, you can take in stunning views of central Geneva and peaks of the Alps, including Mont Blanc. You can also visit Mont Salève for adventure sports, such as rock climbing in summer and cross-country skiing in winter.


What is the best way to get around Geneva?

Geneva Airport (GVA) is only 4 kilometres (2.5 miles) away from the city centre, so you can quickly reach your hotel after arriving on flights to Geneva. A train connects the airport to Gare Cornavin – one of Geneva’s main train stations – in six minutes.

Central Geneva is fairly compact and walkable, but there are also trams and buses to help you get from one attraction to the next in between return flights to Geneva. There are five tram lines, and each one passes through the centre before extending to the inner suburbs. There are also 90 bus routes with extensive service around the city and suburbs that come in handy if you’re headed somewhere that's not accessible by tram.

Catch a shuttle boat (known locally as a mouette) to visit different points around the lake while holidaying on return flights to Geneva. There are four mouette lines that offer service to the ports of Pâquis, Molard, Eaux Vives, Genève-plage, and Perle du Lac. The mouettes are not only a convenient way to get from one place to another – you can also ride them for gorgeous lake views while visiting Switzerland on flights to Geneva.

Are you hoping to plan day trips after booking tickets to Geneva? The cities and towns of Switzerland are well-connected by train, and there are plenty of day trips to take from Geneva, including Lausanne, Bern, and the Swiss Riviera, which consists of the towns of Vevey, Montreux, and Chillon.


When is the best time to visit Geneva?

There are four distinct seasons to keep in mind when booking your tickets to Geneva. Summer is a popular time due to the pleasant weather, and it’s also the busiest time to book flights into Geneva Airport (GVA). Hotels tend to increase their rates, so it’s a good idea to lock in accommodation early if you’ll be travelling on summer flights to Geneva. Temperatures of about 26°C make this an excellent time to enjoy outdoor activities like hiking in the Alps and getting out on Lake Geneva.

Autumn and spring are the two shoulder seasons in Geneva. Consider travelling on cheap flights to Geneva during these times for comfortable temperatures without the heavy crowds that come with summer. Daytime temperatures typically range between 10° and 20°C during autumn and spring with occasional rain showers.

Winter gets chilly in Geneva with temperatures averaging about 5°C during the day and -1°C at night and some snow. However, this is a popular time to travel on cheap flights to Geneva due to the city’s proximity to the Swiss Alps. There are several ski resorts within an hour’s drive of Geneva, including Le Praz de Lys, La Clusaz and Le Grand-Bornand.
