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.
An imposing viaduct built with roughly hewn stone framed by the wilderness of the mountain world with high alpine fir trees and steep rock faces. On the viaduct the little red train chugs along its track. That's the Bernina Express on its way from Graubünden to Veltlin.
The Panoramic-Express is a part of the famous Golden Pass Line from Montreux to Lucerne. The golden-colored, elegant trains take passengers from the banks of Lake Geneva via the famous resort town of Gstaad to Interlaken in the Bernese Oberland.
