After 3 hours of journey we reached Geneva, our first stop in Switzerland. We booked our home stay in Interlaken because most of the things we planned were near to it. We planned to have a 2 hours layover in Geneva to see the beautiful lake the city around. Before going more into the beauty of Geneva Lake, I just like to add some details of the travel pass we took. For our travel in Switzerland, we took 3 days Swiss Travel Pass (STP). With this pass more than 90% of the transportation are covered, around 500 museums can be accessed for free and up to 50% off on many mountain excursions. Please refer to SBB app for more details.
Geneva Lake is at 15 minutes’ walk from station, so I will suggest to take a halt of an hour or two and go to see this beautiful lake, its worth walking. We were 2 couple, walking on the street of Geneva between colorful buildings and flowers, we reached Geneva Lake. Water of this lake is very clear and there is a huge fountain in the center of lake. Bright sunny noon with sparkling fountain perfect combination to spend some memorable time over there. You will find yellow color boat (included in pass) to cross the lake and go near the fountain and have some beautiful clicks. Near to fountain, there is a garden, if you want to rest for a while. If you want to buy some Swiss souvenirs, I will suggest to check them in Geneva as same things will be a bit costlier if you thought to buy in Interlaken or any other town nears Alps. I bought Swiss knife, Swiss Cow Bell and a Swiss musical box from a shop on my way returning station.
