You can start the virtual stroll at the place of your choice by selecting a key location from the list below.
Morge River Footbridge (1)
River Morge, the torrent that marks the border between Switzerland and France, looks innocent but can become formidable in the event of torrential rains. A flood in 2015 led to the construction of this secure footbridge to replace the old one, which was about fifty meters upstream.

Morge River Footbridge (3)
The footbridge offers amazing panoramic views of Lake Geneva, the terraced vineyards of Lavaux and the Riviera. As you can imagine, it's not to the taste of the owners of the shore house, who preferred to keep this view private... But it offers Saint-Gingolph a nice tourist asset!
Morge River Footbridge (4)
On the French side, the footbridge arrives at André-Chevallay Quay, which runs along the lakeshore for 650 m. In July 2020, when this series of panoramas was shot, it was in works. We will show it when the work is finished!
Morge Torrent
Between the lakeshore restaurants and the Morge torrent, which marks the border, palisades are erected to avoid the catastrophic floods of the past.
Quai André-Chevallay
On the French side, the footbridge arrives at André-Chevallay Quay, which runs along the lakeshore for 650 m. In July 2020, when this series of panoramas was shot, it was in works. We will show it when the work is finished!
Route Cantonale
Here, the road is named "Route Cantonale" (Canton Road). After the bridge which marks the border between Switzerland and France, it becomes "Rue Nationale" (National Street). But we will follow a different path to go to France...
Rue du Lac
We pass at the bottom of Rue du Lac, which leaves from Route Cantonale just before the bridge that marks the border. Funny detail, there is another Rue du Lac on the French side, just after the border! To reach France by the footbridge over the Morge, continue along the restaurant terraces.
Rue du Port (1)
We take Rue du Port on the right, which goes down to the lakeshore and the boat dock.
Rue du Port (2)
Passing just above the marina, the street slopes gently down to the CGN boat dock.
Rue du Port (3)
We are here in front of the CGN pier, where you can take the boat for various cruises on Lake Geneva.
Saint-Gingolph Boat Dock
The Saint-Gingolph boat dock is served by CGN boats (General Navigation Company on Lake Geneva). It is located in the Swiss part of the village.
