La Jonction

Above La Jonction, Geneva

Accessed by the Bois de la Bâtie, you will enjoy seeing the mingling waters from the Rhône and the Arve rivers from the railroad bridge. On one side of the bridge you will find another park, smaller, but with picnic tables and shady trees as well.

Directions for a walk:

Pass under the Pont de Sous-Terre, to the terminus of mouette line #6, which offers tourists a scenic 2½ hour trip down the Rhône. On the opposite side is a veritable cliff, which also has many pleasant trails along the bank. There are many benches where you can watch the river flow by, shaded by grand old trees. You will see a few row boats tied up here, the river becoming open to the public from this point on.
