Rental Apartment Plainpalais

About the District

Plainpalais is Geneva’s most central district, located at the southern tip of Lake Geneva, between the Rhône and the Are rivers. It used to be a commune on its own until it was absorbed in 1931 by the city. Mentioned in Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein, Plainpalais has always been a thriving area, both historically, culturally and economically. The district’s vibrant cultural scene offers a wide variety of entertainment, from several theatres (like the Pitoeff Theatre, the Casino-theatre and the Grand Théâtre), several museums to a couple of churches and the Arve river banks where you can enjoy a pebble beach and a dip. Its Plaine hosts the biggest flea market and farmers market in Geneva as well as a skatepark and different events and fairs throughout the year. Plainpalais apartments are ideal for city-dwellers who want everything at their doorsteps. Its central location also ensures excellent transport links to the rest of Switzerland, which make temporary apartments in Plainpalais a very attractive accommodation option for students, doctors and business people looking for corporate housing near Plainpalais’s Geneva University and Switzerland’s largest university hospital, HUG.
