Did you know ?
On 9 September 1898, Empress Elisabeth of Austria, invited to lunch at the Château de Pregny, refused Baroness de Rotschild's proposal to borrow her boat to return to Territet the following day. She was murdered as she was about to board the shipping company’s steamer as it was leaving the Beau-Rivage Hotel in Geneva.
Many castles, owned by prominent families, are located in Pregny-Chambésy. Empress Joséphine de Beauharnais, Voltaire, Adolphe and Julie de Rothschild, Charles-René Pictet, and more stayed there.
When it was first built in 1857, Chambésy Station connected Geneva and Versoix. The stations were originally simple wooden shelters until the buildings were constructed in 1858. It was not until 1877 that Compagnie de chemin de fer Suisse-Occidentale announced that it would install suburban trains stopping at the level crossing. This is how the Pregny stop was created.
