I’m so excited to share the details of my latest trip to Geneva, Switzerland! As I mentioned in my last post, I traveled to Geneva with IWC Watches for SIHH 2017. In this post I’ve rounded up the best spots to stay, eat, and enjoy all that this beautiful city has to offer.

Where to Stay

Originally I was going to stay at the Hotel Kempinski, but we had a last minute change to Hotel N’vY – I loved it! The hotel was very trendy with eclectic furniture, pops of bright color and touches of graffiti by artist Meres One. The location was perfect, it was right in the city’s center and a short distance to Lake Geneva.

Where to Eat

 The food in Geneva was nothing short of amazing. The first restaurant we dined at was Tse Yang, located at Hotel Kempinski. Tse Yang is internationally known for their incredible Chinese cuisine, and now I know why. Not only is the food remarkable, but I was also able to enjoy beautiful views of Lake Geneva from my table. Our second stop for food was the restaurant at the gorgeous Domaine de Chateauvieux. The 16th-century architecture gave this astonishing restaurant the type of ambiance that you can only find in Geneva, it’s a must see/eat. The Restaurant Les Armures was my final stop for authentic Swiss cuisine. The restaurant is one of the oldest in the city and has become a favorite of locals and tourists alike. It’s known primarily for its cheese fondue and let me tell you, I ate plenty of it!

What to Do

Place Bourg du Four is a must in Geneva too. It is definitely worth it to pass by there while exploring the old town. It’s a lovely square with nice little shops, amazing restaurants, and bars. Lake Geneva is probably their top tourist attraction. You can take a beautiful Cruise on a luxury coach and see the Geneva Water Fountain and many other landmarks. The lake is surrounded by easily walked paths!

Hope you liked my travel guide. Have you traveled to Geneva before? If so, I would love to read your suggestions!
