If you like French food - and who doesn't - then you will enjoy the Tuesday and Friday morning markets in Annemasse town center. A smaller market takes place on Saturday morning in Gaillard, a 5 mins walk from the Moillesullaz border. Sunday morning markets in Collonges-sous-Saleve (bus 45 from Geneva to Croix-de-Rozon) and Ville-la-Grand (hourly bus C from Geneva or Thoenx to Puplinge, then 15 mins walk)

French brasserie, elegant decoration, typical regional dishes with a selection of set menus. Good for a casual meal as well as for a birthday outing.
Favorite Dish: I had Calve's head (tete de veau) on a delicious mustard sauce, hard to find nowadays. Next time, I will test the Andouillette. My friends had beef and concluded that the Entrecote cut is better in Switzerland, as usual (also based on previous experience in other French restos).

Just back from a Good Friday lunch at this nodern Turkish restaurant under new, prfessional and very friendly management. The daily menu included a tasty salad, trout (Good Friday after all) with rice and ice cream for dessert. Add 2 glasses of Turksih rose wine and a Turkish (again) coffee, and the total came to a modest Euro 11.00!
Favorite Dish: Next time, I plan to try the different kebab (means grill in Turkey) dishes, such as the Iskander Kebab. Good choice of Turkish wines.

Eating and sleeping are the only pleasant activities that seem fit for Annemasse. For the rest, you best go to Geneva. But careful, there is no public transport (except for taxis) in Annemasse after 8 pm and on Sundays. The tram runs from Geneva to Moillsullaz border until midnight, followed by a couple of nightbuses on weekends. The taxi from Geneva to Annemasse costs about Fr. 50.00

If coming from Switzerland one way of getting to Annemasse is by train. However, the train does not leave from the main railway station! You have to get to the other side of the city until you reach a tiny, old railway station. Here is the customs and the train connection to Annemasse. The ride takes about 20 mins.

Annemasse has frequent bus services during weekdays, but none in the evening and very few on Sundays. You can also take the train from Annemasse to Geneva-Eaux Vives (abt 15 mins walk to the lake or city centre).
Bus tickets available from driver or in booklets of 10 from tobacco shops (much cheaper).
