Montreux or Geneva

by FraMauro

I have 2 nights and can't decide whether to spend both in Geneva or 1 night in Montreux at Eurotel Riveira. Since I have to take a train to Interlaken, I thought it would make sense to stay at Montreux. Hubby, however, thinks changing a hotel everyday is tedious. Pls. advise.

Thanks

It's as easy getting to Interlaken from Geneva as it is from Montreux, so that is not really a factor. Changing hotels every night is tedious in my opinion, and if I were you i'd stay both nights in Montreux.

Travel Tips for Geneva

Trebate uzeti brodic i...

by Damir

Trebate uzeti brodic i provozati se po Zenevskom jezeru (vodic vam govori sto gledate). Isto tako trebate doci i vidjeti (samo izvana) zgradu UN-a, te Cvjetni sat (s najvecim kazaljkama u Evropi). Obavezno se prosecite pos starom gradu i uz jezero...

Kada puse vjetar, makar i malo, ne radi vodoskok (i ja nisam imao srece da ga vidim)...

Food and drink in Geneva

by Ritchie_Lionheart

The eating habits are as varied in Geneva as is its poulation. Nothing really that does not exist in this city and canton. But it also has its traditional cusine, not to forget that it is the third wine producing canton in Switzerland.

FRUIT AND VEGGIES: Geneva is considered a Swiss urban canton, but its greenhouses cover the most important tomato growing plantation in this country.
The CARDONS are a vegetable that only grows in this region (off-season availalable canned).
Late-September, look for Chasselas grapes: small, very sweet when yellow, you best buy them in the vineyards (Satigny, Dardagny etc).
.
MEAT AND FISH: Hunting is no longer permitted in this canton, but the hunting season from mid-September until December brings a large array of specialities on menus.
In winter, the LONGEOLE, a delicious pork saucisson with pistachio and fennel is made by local butchers, which is best served with potato gratin.
The lake fish may not always be in ample supply, but be it imported or local, the Fillets of Perche are definitely worth a try. Some bistrots serve it on Fridays as Plat de Jour.
In summer, you may like a Steak Tartare made with raw and minced prime beef.
MILK AND CHEESE: Check my contribution on cheese fondue. If you miss the occasion, buy a ready-made Gerber Fondue from the supermarket before going back home. I personally think that it's one of the best.
And enjoy Swiss yoghurts (Migros, Emmi or Toni are great).
WINE: Every year in May, some 50 Geneva wine growers have an open (Satur)Day with free tasting. Geneva is famous for both its whites (Perlan, Chasselas, Riesling etc.) and reds (Gamay, Pinot Noir etc.). My favourite region is Dardagny, take the train to La Plaine and walk uphill (don't fall on the way back).
BEER: Switzerland has only few breweries, my favourite is Feldschloesschen Hopfenperl draft.
SOFT DRINKS: Rivella and Sinalco are popular allover Switzerland, fruit juice often too expensive in restaurants. Passugger and Valser are sparkling mineral waters from the mountains.

Packing List

by prunila

Winter clothes during the season, of course.
Always: a umbrella.
If you take a boat over the lake Leman it is windy: take good clothes. Be careful not to eat too much (cheese and chocolate).
Don't mix drinks with La Fondue.

Ferdinand de Saussure (1857-1913)

by Nemorino

From this plaque in the Old Town I learned that the great Swiss linguist Ferdinand de Saussure (1857-1913) was born in Geneva. Since I used to be a student of linguistics I was well aware of his importance as the creator of the 20th century theory of structuralism.

It turns out that his famous book A Course in General Linguistics, which was published three years after his death, in 1916, was based on a course he taught three times at the University of Geneva between 1906 and 1911.
