Paquis Baths

Holiday Travel Guide

Unwind in this historic lakeside bathhouse that serves up some of the best massages, fondue and views in Geneva.

A visit to the Pâquis bathhouse, on the banks of Lake Geneva, is guaranteed to help you unwind. Locals and visitors flock here year-round to enjoy the restorative waters, a relaxing massage, delicious meals and sweeping views of Lake Geneva.

The Bains des Pâquis jetty was originally built in the 1800s and became a municipal bathhouse in 1890. Today this historic location is one of Geneva’s best-loved institutions.

Bathhouse activities change slightly between summer and winter. Visit in the hotter months to stretch out in the sun, work on your tan or take a dip in the cool waters of Lake Geneva. Combine this with a visit to the Hamam baths to experience hot and cold rooms that leave you feeling clean and refreshed. In winter, thaw out in the Turkish baths, steam rooms and saunas.

No matter what time of year, be sure to try one of the bathhouse’s exquisite massages. Choose from reflexology, deep muscle massage and shiatsu among the many other techniques on offer to restore your tired body. For a peaceful experience, start the day here with a tai chi class.

The bathhouse’s restaurant is a Geneva favourite, popular for its excellent meals and its informal atmosphere. Enjoy a light breakfast to start your day or a warming fondue on cool evenings. The venue has incredible views of the Jet d’Eau, St. Pierre’s Cathedral and the surrounding lakeside. After dinner, walk out onto the bathhouse jetty to take a spectacular panoramic photograph of Geneva’s skyline.

The Pâquis Bath charges a small entry fee; seasonal passes offer discounts for repeat visitors. Massages and tai chi classes charge separate fees and should be booked in advance. The bathhouse is centrally located and is easily accessible on foot or by using frequent bus routes or by water taxi from the south side of Lake Geneva.
