Geneva and Geneva lake

Celebrating this new year was unforgettable. :) I was abroad, in Geneva, Switzerland. A few weeks, before I went there, I had no expectations whatsoever about the city. I have never thought about going there, so I had no idea, how many hidden gems it actually has. ;)

This flags make this street so ... well, swiss ;)

The biggest tourist attraction is of course the lake (le lac in french). It is really big, you cannot see the end of it. :) In the summertime it actually serves like the see with the beaches and all. In the winter it gives Geneva a wonderful scene for walking or running.

The second biggest must go is Jet d’eau, a 140 meter high jet on the lake. The last day I took quite some time during jogging to take a good picture of it. :)

We didn’t go to any museums (we would visit Patek Philippe museum, but it was closed), nor visited any other typical tourist attractions, but took the time to walk and drive around, so we got pretty good feeling about the city by the lake. What fascinated me most is its architecture. Old french like houses with belfries is what I will remember Geneva for. And of course dozens of luxurious hotels like Kempinski.

I love the Genevian architecture!

The last day I went to the city cathedral St. Pierre, which is gorgeous but impossible to take photo of. We went for a coffee and for a croissant before I went for the last run. I chose a cozy bar with nice waitresses, and it would definitely be one of my favorites if I lived there.
