The best shopping in Geneva
We want to show you just how creative your shopping in Geneva can get – once you know where to go. The block around Place du Molard may be well stocked with designer boutique options and department stores, but the surrounding side streets and downtown villages like Eaux Vives, Carouge and Quartier des Bains have a wealth of interesting and creative one-offs. How about a unique mechanical art gallery complete with flying structures? Or a world-renowned vintage clothing collection? One of a kind jewels? Retro home design at affordable prices? Book-stores where you can buy art and get your hair done? Geneva has so many original outlets to discover on any shopping tour. Plus a big advantage to shopping in the city is its bijoux size: you can cover most of it on foot and the remainder via the super efficient tram system.

Lausanne's best boutiques and fashion stores
Thanks to a number of hip local boutiques Lausanne is a magnet for the area's bright young things.

The key to savvy shopping in this stylish cathedral city? Catch the metro up from Ouchy or the train station to the shopping hub of Place St Francois to browse fashion stores like Annabelle Elégance, Madison and Bon Génie. But Lausanne isn't just about designer clothes. Search a little further and you'll come across quirky independent gift shops like the wonderful De la Suite Dans les Idees, luxury food stores and even a shop dedicated to all things cupcake.
