Fun Spring Activities in Geneva

Spring is finally here, and it's the perfect time to plan new, exciting trips. The cold is almost behind us, nature is waking up, and Switzerland is known to be one of the best destinations in springtime. Regardless of the season, we recommend Geneva, which offers many exciting activities and adventures that fit everyone's taste.

You will undoubtedly experience adventure and fun in this picturesque city. Beautiful nature, delicious food, relaxation, and enjoyment await you in this Swiss city. Try at least one of these activities if you're heading to Geneva this spring.



Explore Botanical Garden 


Nature is starting to bloom, so it's the right time to walk through the Geneva Botanical Garden and admire the diverse collection of plants, flowers, and trees. The botanical garden in Geneva has over 16,000 species of plants, from medicinal to exotic and those with beautiful flowers. It also has a zoo with exotic birds of stunning colors that will make you feel like you have entered a tropical jungle.


We recommend that you also visit the alpine garden and immerse yourself in the beauty of mountain flora while still staying in the city.


Picnic by Lake Geneva


With the return of sunny weather and warmer days, Lake Geneva again begins to gather locals and tourists who enjoy walking and picnicking among the enchanting scenery of the lake and the high Alps. Stop by one of the local markets or shops, take some of the delicious Swiss cheese, wine, and chocolate treats with you, and head to the lake. Bring blankets and enjoy the spring sun, beautiful nature, and delicious Swiss delicacies.


Cycling


Spring is the right time to return to activities that are beneficial for health and fun, and cycling is one of them. This way you will see more of what the city offers, stay active and enjoy nature. Rent a bicycle, follow the map of cycle paths around Geneva, and enjoy the beautiful view of Lake Geneva and its surroundings. If you like adventure and are up for a more challenging ride, explore the surrounding trails and enjoy the breathtaking views, vineyards, and mountains dotted with flowers.


Hiking in the Jura Mountains


If you'd like to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city for a while and relax in nature, then bring comfortable hiking clothes and shoes because the Jura Mountains are a must-go destination. Only a few minutes' drive from Geneva separates you from picturesque paths that wind through meadows and forests. While enjoying the natural surroundings, pay attention to domestic and forest animals, deer, chamois, or birds you may meet.



Outdoor Markets


One of the best ways to get to know any city is to visit one of the local markets. The same goes for Geneva. There, you will find everything from fresh produce, cheeses, handmade crafts, local food, and groceries to beautiful flowers. We recommend visiting the lively Carouge Market in an attractive rural setting. There, you will find local specialties, gourmet delicacies from all over the world, and unique artisanal products.
