Getting Festive in Geneva


 
With its Christmas festivals, markets and snow-covered streets, Geneva is the perfect place for a romantic getaway. Thanks a Geneva airport taxi with Shuttle Direct, you and your partner can be strolling through the enchanting Swiss city’s streets, or snuggled-up in a café sharing local delicacies and a hot chocolate, in just 20 minutes. Get in the Christmas spirit and explore the city’s once-a-year festivities.

The Escalade

This three-day annual festival commemorates Geneva’s defence during the attack of Duke Savoy’s army. Held on the weekend closest to the 11th, it is an extraordinary celebration of Geneva’s history. On the Friday, you can take part in the traditional smashing of a chocolate pot, a ritual that honours the tale of a woman who poured hot soup on the heads of intruding soldiers climbing the city walls. The Saturday and Sunday involve parades through the streets, with festivities centred in Park des Bastion, Place du Bourg-de-Four and the square in front of St Peter’s Cathedral. The celebrations end with the igniting of a ceremonial fire in front of the Cathedral.

Christmas Circus

Sweep your partner off their feet with a classic date-night at the Cirque de Noël. With a unique variety of talented acts, including tightrope walkers, trapeze acrobats, pole dancers, clowns, magicians and jugglers, this show is guaranteed to entertain. You can even book one of their dinner shows. Indulge in a romantic four-course meal whilst you both admire the circus extravaganza and its unmissable performances.

Christmas Swimming Cup

Looking for a quirky one-off event? This is certainly something to write home about. First held in 1934, the winter swim takes place in Lake Geneva on the quay of the Jardin Anglais and involves a 125-metre race between anyone foolishly brave enough to face the almost-freezing waters. The race is wild, chaotic and hilarious, with water temperatures reaching no higher than 4 or 5°C. Wrap up warm on 18 December and soak in the fun atmosphere of this fantastic race.

Montreux Christmas Market

Top off your weekend with a trip to the Montreux market on the shores of Lake Geneva. It has a stunning winter setting with beautiful lights, arts and crafts stalls, traditional decorations and Christmas music. There is also a variety of food and drink stalls for you to indulge your sweet tooth and try the local delicacies. You couldn’t hope for a more romantic setting, as the 150 decorated chalets illuminate the edge of the lake.

How to Get There

Start your special weekend away with a stress-free private transfer with Shuttle Direct’s Geneva airport taxi. With the terminal located just 11km away from the city centre, our friendly driver can take you to your holiday love-nest in just 20 minutes. To get to Geneva airport, catch an EasyJet flight from Gatwick airport starting from £70.
