The Celts called Lake Geneva "Large Water" or "Lem an", and it is to this day called Lac Léman in French. And it is large indeed. Regularly scheduled lake boats, historic paddle steamers and small ferries ply this 582-square-kilometer body of water.

Lake Geneva is a water body of superlatives: mildest climate, largest lake and lake with the largest amount of water in Central Europe.

Shipping on Lake Geneva also breaks records. The shipping company CGN operates eight paddle steamers, the largest European fleet of its kind.Regularly scheduled lake boats connect the numerous villages and cities, and small ferries, called "Mouettes", carry passengers in Geneva rapidly from one shore of the lake to another.

Visitors who want to enjoy a comfortable journey book a special culinary trip or a cruise to notable sights, such as the emblem of the city of Geneva, the "Jet d'eau", an up to 140 meter high water fountain that is illuminated at night.
