Genève–Salève

The route provides the opportunity to discover the many facets of Geneva, with distant views of the bastion of Mount Salève. After the border crossing, the tour can be continued by aerial cableway up Mount Salève, with fantastic views that are famous far and wide.
The cycle tour begins with a ride through the historic city of Geneva, to the Parc des Bastions with its famous Mauer der Reformatoren (Reformation Wall) in commemoration of Calvin and the proponents of Protestant Geneva. After passing through historic residential areas and the Parc Bertrand, the route continues on cycle lanes along the Route de Florissant, the link between town and country. The Ethnographic Museum found here is well worth a visit. The Pont de Sierne leads across the yellowish, surging Arve, which rises in the Mont Blanc region. To the left, views sweep over the hamlet of Sierne with its historic farmsteads.

Soon the Petit-Salève, with its steep limestone walls, gets closer, on French soil immediately before the gateway to Geneva. Bikes can be transported free of charge by aerial cableway to the top of Mount Salève, from where the views over the city of Geneva, Lac Léman and the Mont Blanc massif are simply spectacular.
