Pick up your hire car at Geneva Airport (Swiss Side) and explore this Swiss city and beyond at your own pace.
Geneva has so much to offer, it’s hard to know which way to turn. Hiring a car is particularly popular during the winter months, as it provides easy access to various ski resorts across Switzerland.
The French-speaking part of Switzerland (sometimes referred to as “Romandie”) offers visitors exciting cities, historic monuments and cultural excellence, as well as stunning Alpine scenery and numerous ski resorts. With the option to travel into neighbouring France too, Geneva provides many memorable road trips.
Just under 100km from Geneva Airport, via the A1 and A9, is the resort of Montreux. With its world-famous jazz festival (June/July) and delightful lakefront promenade, it’s a popular tourist haunt. Chillon Castle, perched on a rocky outcrop just offshore, is worth visiting and features fortified walls and a museum.
Travel via the A1 from Geneva Airport for 45 minutes and you’ll arrive in the beautiful port of Lausanne. With its delightful old town (dominated by an impressive gothic cathedral) and vibrant nightlife, it’s well worth visiting. Gourmands will also be impressed by the choice of restaurants, serving a variety of regional specialties.
Around a 90-minute drive from Geneva Airport (via the A1 and A12) is Gruyères – a typical Swiss Alpine village offering picture-postcard scenery, incredible mountain views and the famous Gruyères cheese factory. Here you’ll also find a fine selection of restaurants, many of which specialise in cheese fondue. If you’re a history buff, there’s also a 13th century castle to explore.
Beyond Geneva Airport (Swiss Side), a kaleidoscope of attractions across Switzerland awaits. With the convenience of a hire car, you’re free to discover them at your leisure.
