Ciné Transat Open Air Cinema
During July through August, the stunning Perle du Lac park on the shores of Lake Geneva turns into an open-air cinema. During your visit to Geneva, this is one event that shouldn’t be missed. It doesn’t get more romantic than watching a film under the stars, lakeside, with the Alps as your backdrop. Use your kitchenette in your Fraser Suites serviced apartment to prepare a picnic, pack a bottle of wine, and head down to the park before sunset, just in time for the showing. This is a great activity that everyone will enjoy and a fantastic way to relax and feel like a local. Make the most of your evening by walking to Perle du Lac which takes less than 30-minutes from the hotel, or, if you would prefer, public transport links are close by.
Geneva Lake Parade
One of the most popular annual events in Geneva, the renowned Geneva Lake Parade has been taking place since 1997. With a whole day of events, the Lake Parade draws thousands of attendees who come to celebrate, party and have a great time. This free event takes place at Avenue de France and ends at Baby Beach. Decorated trucks transformed into lake mobiles cruise the banks of Lake Geneva as they lead the parade with a range of music, including electronic, EDM and house. After the parade, dance the night away at Lake Sensation, a free open-air party that goes on until the small hours of the morning. Before heading out for a long day of dancing and celebration, make sure you fuel up at Fraser Suites Geneva’s breakfast room, Le Léman room, where you can enjoy hot dishes, pastries and more.
July is one of the best times to visit Geneva. With beautiful warm temperatures reaching the high 20s, it is the perfect time to take advantage of the exciting lakeside attractions. Spend the day out on the glistening lake surrounded by the stunning Alps as you take to the waters for a spot of kayaking, paddle boarding or canoeing. Why not learn how to sail? Or, if you prefer to just sit back and relax, hop aboard a lake cruise, some of which provide meals and drinks. Along the banks of the lake, you will also find many beaches and restaurants where you can unwind and soak up the picturesque scenery.
