  • Right there on the promenade by Lake Geneva, this is a magnificent statue of the Queen legend in all his flamboyance. Too crowded with people wanting to take pics but worth a visit nevertheless. There is a fountain play nearby for children to frolic and beat the hot sun. Our kids preferred the lake and spent a happy hour in the water.
  • This is a great open place for any kind of get-together and it was surprisingly fun to be there. The dock is low enough to the rocks so that you can hop down to get your feet wet, or you can go on the smaller circle dock and climb the ladder down into the water! Plenty of places to sit and always fun stuff to do and but near there. Water is pretty and mostly clean, and clear enough to see to the bottom. Overall great public place!
