Ripe for discovery, the Lake Geneva Region has everything you need to relax, recharge and enjoy the finer things in life.
The Lake Geneva Region is the place to go for fine food and wines. With its six vineyards – including UNESCO-listed Lavaux – it is Switzerland’s second wine-producing region, making it the ideal destination for wine tourism holidays, with marked footpaths and wine tastings with the producers. The most widespread white grape variety, chasselas is the perfect accompaniment for local AOP cheeses, Etivaz and Vacherin Mont-d’Or, amongst other delights.
Inspired by this fine offering, the best-known chefs have set up shop in the region, which has the highest number of restaurants featured in the prestigious Michelin and Gault Millau guides in Switzerland.
Aside from the pleasures of the palate, visitors can enjoy the shopping streets in the lakeside towns and relax in the wellness centres. There are some ten luxury hotels offering spas to rest and recuperate, while the spa towns of Yverdon-les-Bains and Lavey-les-Bains offers moments of pure relaxation in the steam of their hot springs.
