The Mont-Salève Cable Car

Doesn’t every city break have to include visiting a view spot?  The London Eye and The Shard in London, The Eiffel Tower in Paris, The Empire State Building in New York.

When we were in Geneva we went to a view with a difference. You take the cable car up to the top of a (smallish) mountain and you can take in all the beautiful views below. What I loved most about this spot was that you can also walk around the top of the mountain as there are a few trails to choose from.  So a view but also a chance to have a walk.  It’s also really easy to reach the mountain, just a short bus ride from the city centre.

Isn’t there something special about seeing buildings get smaller and smaller as you go higher and higher.

Can you imagine going to a wedding here?!  They were prepping for one while we were there!DSC02118

Not a bad view to enjoy a picnic over either.  If you look closely you can see the The Jet d’Eau ~ The Waterfountain on the far left of the lake.  That thing is huge!  I also saw it illuminated on my evening flight when I left Geneva.DSC02119 DSC02120 DSC02122

You can also stop for a warming hot chocolate as it’s slightly colder up there!DSC02127

  1. Gorgeous view! I didn’t even know there was a cable car in Geneva! Perhaps my friend didn’t tell me because it was january and it’s not really worth going up the mountain in that weather!

  2. My favorite view is anything with water and mountains. Both very pretty on their own but spectacular paired together! I have recently been enjoying views from way up high, when a city has a tower, I always want to go up and look around! It’s fun to point out places you’ve been from way up high!
