Switzerland (die Schweiz / La Suisse / Svizzera)

Post by Martijn » Wed Aug 19, 2009 1:26 pm

I'll be in Geneva for a few days next month. For work and I'll be quite busy, but I think I have half a day or so to spare on the last day before my flight leaves. Has anyone ever been there? Things to do/see/visit/avoid?

I've been there a couple of times. It's gorgeous! Just sit back, soak it up, and enjoy it all!

People do say that Geneva is a bit of a fake city, as people there are from all over the place so it lacks a defining feel of its own (indeed, some of its suburbs are in a different country). But I've found it to be a lovely place regardless - it's just a very nice place to spend time. I'm jealous!

Here's my car overlooking Lake Geneva, a few weeks ago: -

Thanks! That's the best possible advice I could get really, because what if someone said I should visit this essential bar/restaurant/gallery and I wouldn't. It looks lovely from your photo and I'm quite looking forward to being there (in a month from now). It's been added to Google Street View two days ago too so I can do some online exploring beforehand.

Hi there,

I remember you from your DJ set at Indietracks.
Don't know anything about Lucerne, but I found the following in my inbox today:

28 Nov 2014, Allo Darlin', Schüür, Tribschenstrasse 1, 6005 Luzern

http://www.schuur.ch/

Sorry, no advise for eating vegetarian. Fondue perhaps if you are sick of Raclette.

Not indiepop-related, but I thought I'd drop this here:
