Nice... I've just been to Geneva yesterday (haven't visited the city for 10 years). March is quite a bad time to go to Switzerland - nothing's going on and all the people are in warmer countries or up the mountains.

BTW: the power plant is not Lausanne but Aarau (Gösgen)

Great collection!

Does Basel have two major railway stations? I reckon this one is a railway station, but I remember seeing pictures of another rather large-looking station as well.

The mountains are more spectacular than the cities imo. Only one month to go, and I'm in Switzerland myself

Yes Basel have two train stations serving three countries the main one is Basel SBB (the one in the picture) and the other one is Bâle SNCF that serve all trains coming from france, This station is in french territory.

@ Taipi 101:

I think Bâle SNCF is just next to Basel SBB (and therefore on Swiss territory). But can it be seen as a station on its own or is it just part of Basel SBB? The second largest station is Basel Badischer Bahnhof north of the Rhine which is the station of Deutsche Bahn and used by all services to Germany.

These are the two (or three if you want) big ones. Basel has also a number of smaller stations.

These shots bring back a lot of memories. One of my Mother's friends is high up in HSBC and has an apartment in Genevé which almost directly faces the Jet d'Eau (on the same side of the lake as the jet). We had fantastic views and I really did enjoy my time there (thouch I prefer Zürich more as a city).

Excellent photos, thank you for sharing them.

Yes but he's shown the old part of the cities, Zurich, Basel, Geneva and Bern have they're own CBDs, own council blocks, Geneva in particular has the huge Lignon block. There's much more to see than just the historic parts.
