Merits of Lake Geneva in February?

Jump to last reply

Hello Fodorites!

It has come to my attention that a friend of a friend will be living in Geneva for a year (by herself in a sweet 3-bedroom apartment, in which we could stay for free) while I'm visiting our mutual friend in France.

Initial talks of a 3 to 4-day trip to the area have been discussed, but I'd love your input.

Switzerland in February is, dare I say, not the ideal time for non-skiers. :) From what I've seen here (there's a 10.5 year-old thread on the forum!) and elsewhere is that they are some lovely older towns, nice for some walking, eating, a museum here and there. But not sure if it's necessarily worth much exploration if it's going to be only slighter warmer average temps than I'm used to during that month.

From your experience, what are the merits of places like Lausanne, Lutry, Vevey, and Montreux at this time of year? If you had a solid 3 days, which would you prioritize and why?

Or would you say scrap the idea altogether and hope to visit the area on a future trip in warmer temps?

Many thanks!
