… in Geneva 2021

Geneva was the last station of Sisi's life in 1898. After a stay in the Kaiservilla in Ischl, she arrived in Territet near Montreux on Lake Geneva on August 30. Lake Geneva (French: Lac Léman) is the second largest inland lake in surface area in Europe after Lake Balaton and even the largest in volume, the main part of the southern bank belongs to France.

Steamboats have been sailing on Lake Geneva since 1823, paddle steamers since 1875. The Empress was aboard one of these ships on September 9, traveling from Montreux to Geneva, the city on the south end of the lake. She was invited to lunch by Baroness Rothschild.

Empress Elisabeth spent the night in Hotel Beau-Rivage, and from here she departed in the early afternoon of September 10 together with her lady-in-waiting Irma Sztáray to reach the liner “Genève” (which can still be seen in Geneva) for her return to Montreux. Only a few steps from the ship, Sissi was stabbed with a sharp file by the Italian anarchist Luigi Lucheni.

Elisabeth, 61 years old, was transported to Hotel Beau-Rivage on an improvised stretcher and here she died at 2:40 pm after an hour of agony.

Following sights remind at the Empress Elisabeth:

The small bronze plaque on the railing of the lakefront between Pont du Mont-Blanc (the Mont-Blanc Bridge) and the crossover to Rue des Alpes, a statue of Sisi in Rotonde du Mont-Blanc, some of Elisabeth's personal items and reminders of her day of death in a suite in hotel Beau-Rivage, a colorful church window in the Notre-Dame Basilica.
