Geneva nominated as Europe's leading city break destination at the World Travel Awards 2015

Geneva has been nominated by the prestigious World Travel Awards (WTA) – for the 2015 European’s Leading City Break Destination Award – regarded as “The Oscars” in the tourism industry. Winner of the category in last year’s competition, Geneva wants to further affirm its positioning as a top destination for city breaks.

Ideally located in the heart of Europe and known as one of Switzerland’s most spectacular landscapes, Geneva is a dream of a city thanks to a unique setting on the shores of Western Europe’s largest lake and with a dazzling view on the Mont-Blanc. The quality of life is exceptional and the city knows how to welcome her guests with great activities, ultimate experiences as well as Switzerland’s most refined dining experiences. Geneva offers considerably more than is often expected or imagined.  

Since 2012, Geneva Tourism has developed customized packages for their visitors - including the “Geneva Amazing Experiences” – a globally unique concept that is segmented by market and matches city breakers needs – or the more recently launched "Geneva Girls' Guide" – a guide fully dedicated to women, focusing on Girls' Getaways.  

Travelers visiting Geneva are surprised by the facilities and infrastructure the city offers providing added-value advantages to their city break visitor. Amongst these advantages are convenient transportations to and from the airport as well as FREE inner-city transportation for Geneva hotel guests, FREE wifi in the city center and reduced hotel rates during weekends.  

Established in 1993, the World Travel Awards honors and rewards excellence across all sectors of the tourism industry offering one of the most prestigious and comprehensive awards program in travel and tourism, recognized worldwide as the hallmark of industry excellence. The Wall Street Journal has heralded WTA as “the Oscar of the travel industry.”  

The winners are determined by an online vote cast by hundreds of travel professionals and consumers around the world. The 2015 Europe Gala Ceremony will take place in Sardinia, Italy on the 5th September.
