Geneva, Switzerland (GenevaLunch) – Fun-and-free activities are popping up this weekend in Geneva and I can’t help but share them with GL readers.
On one side of the city: skaters, sticks and a puck; on the other, a huge flea-market and street fair; and a mountain biking competition in the middle of town!
Geneva ice hockey team announces free pre-season game
The Geneve-Servette ice hockey team is hosting its last friendly of the pre-season, and celebrating that their season tickets are selling at record pace, by giving free entry to all children under 16 years of age. Adults (17 and over) will only have to pay CHF10 per ticket.
The game is on 5 September at 16:00 at Sous-Moulin (Trois-Chênes) against the Rögle BK, a Swedish professional ice hockey club.
Tickets go on sale on 4 September from 10:00 to 12:00, or right before the game on 5 September.
Mountain biking in the Old Town
Pedal through the cobbled streets of the Old Town and race down to Bastions Park, or simply watch others do it. The Grand Prix VTT takes place Saturday 4 September starting at 15:00 with a kid’s race, followed by the women’s competition and closing with the Grand Prix at 18:30.
Registration is open to all. Or just enjoy the day watching the dare-devils race down the steep cobbled streets of Geneva.
Street fair and flea market
After a summer break, the Ville-est-a-vous returns. This time the party is in Jonction. Music, food and a 10-streets flea market open to all characterizes this huge street fair.
Only two more fairs remain, Champel on 18 September, and the mother of all neighborhood parties: the Rue-est-a-vous in Paquis on 18 and 19 September.
Enjoy Geneva this weekend!
