When to visit Geneva
The best time to visit Geneva is during the high season (July-August) and the shoulder months (May-June and September-November). High season is when you’ll enjoy Geneva’s lakeside attractions best and the city’s most pleasant weather. The shoulder months of May-June are also a good time to visit weather-wise. And for fewer crowds and cheaper rates, schedule your trip during September-November. But if you enjoy skiing, the best time to visit Geneva is from December-April.
