Peak Season

June to August: The best time to visit Geneva is during the summer months when the weather is mild and breezy. Summers in Switzerland usually boast plenty of sun, though rain is just as common. Although this is also the most crowded season, it is the best time to enjoy a cruise on Lake Geneva. Plan your Geneva summer vacation around two key festivals - Lake Parade (July) and Fêtes de Genève (August).

September to November: If you are in for pleasant winters in Geneva, then this period will suit you just fine. The temperature dips to an average of 10 to 12 degrees Celcius. You will be spared from the tourist rush and the prices will also seem lighter on your pocket!

December to April: Two things happen in Geneva during winters - Bone-chilling winds blow in from Lake Geneva and the snow-blanketed Alps draw in mountain fans. The temperature can go as low as -2 degrees Celsius. That said, skiing enthusiasts throng the region to indulge in adventure activities near the Jungfraujoch region. So be sure to book your hotel at least three months in advance. Prices jump around Christmas and Easter as well as during the February school holidays.

May to June: Spring season is pleasant in Geneva and the temperature ranges from 15 to 20 degrees Celcius. Geneva’s springtime weather is generally agreeable, if not slightly chilly, with the exception of stiflingly hot winds that occasionally blow through low-lying valleys. Some resorts will shut down during these months, so be sure to call ahead.
