There's a new summer attraction in town this year: The "Roue de Genève". It's there until end of August, in the Quartier des Tranchées, just behind the Eglise russe, on Place Sturm!
It's a good idea for a family activity as you can combine the ride with a hotdog or crêpe afterwards! We were very pleased about the fantastic views we got - in all directions: to the old town, on the lake, to the Salève mountain ...
Now, for the Fêtes de Genève, we have another big wheel just at the lake. But it's smaller and the location is not as good for a real overview. But I'm sure it's fun too! Nevertheless I recommand Place Sturm's "Roue de Genève"!!
After seven years in Geneva/French speaking Switzerland, my husband, son and I moved to Stuttgart area. This is the area of my childhood and youth. I know many places already, but there is so much to rediscover and to discover for the first time: towns, forests, lakes, restaurants, cafés and Stuttgart's urban life.
