After a majestic path between fields and vineyards with view of Lake Léman, the small path along the brook of Hermance appears cosy and intimate in comparison. It leads to the small village of Hérmance with its old streets, its harbor, beach and terraces.

Description

Cologny – Vandoeuvres – Corsier – Chevrens – Hermance

Lord Byron visited Percy and Mary Shelley in Cologny near Geneva in the year 1816. He inspired Mary to create the monster "Frankenstein" and his companion John William Polidori to create the figure of the "vampire". The impressions gathered on this tranquil hike will quickly make you forget about Frankenstein. Once you reach Hérmance, the lake promenade and the fine restaurants serving fresh filets of perch will invite you to tarry awhile.
