Lake Annecy is 14.6 km long and 3.4 km wide, making it the second largest lake in France. In Addition, the water is so clean that you can drink from it without any problems. With its light blue water and majestic mountains in the background, this place is definitely worth a visit.
2nd highlight: Palais de l'Ile (Annecy)
This "island palace" housed the Count of Geneva at the time and is an original building from the Middle Ages. It was built on a natural rock island, which is beautifully located in the "Venice of the Alps" (Annecy).
3rd highlight: Free time in Annecy
The beautiful city of Annecy is also known as the "Venice of the Alps" because of its picturesque canals. The romantic old town and the "Pont des Amours" are well worth a visit. This "Lovers' Bridge" offers us a wonderful view of the lake and the surrounding mountains.
4th highlight: Cathédrale Saint-Pierre Genève
The cathedral was first built in 1260 and served as a Protestant church for a long time. It has the highest number of romantic and Gothic chapels in Switzerland and is known for its high tower.

There is also an archaeological dig under the cathedral, where remains from ancient times can be found.
