Geneva, Switzerland

Places of Interest

The Lakefront

One of the city’s greatest assets with the famous “jet d’eau” fountain, which spouts a column of lake water as high as 43 m/460 ft into the air. By strolling the lakeside quays you will pass beautiful parks and the Floral Clock, a reflection of Geneva’s preoccupation with watch making.

The Old Town

Dominated by the Saint Peter's Cathedral, developed during the 12th, 13th and 18th centuries, the charming Old Town bears witness to over two thousand years of history and is full of art galleries, antique shops, booksellers and tiny bistros.

The International Scene

Geneva hosts more than 200 international organizations and is the founding venue of the Red Cross. The imposing Palais des Nations built in 1930, home of the United Nations, dominates a park that offers majestic views of the city, the lake and the Alps.

Carouge

It is worth making a detour to visit Geneva’s Greenwich Village. Its narrow streets are home to a variety of craftsmen, irresistible boutiques and bars, which provide popular meeting places at the end of the week.

Countryside

One of Geneva’s most charming aspects is the quick transition from metropolitan area to delightful countryside with rolling vineyards, fields and forests, rivers and streams. Geneva's vineyard is the third biggest in Switzerland and is famous for its wines.

Chamonix ‑ Mont‑Blanc

The French mountaineering capital is situated just 1 hour outside Geneva. Board the cable car, which takes you up to Europe’s highest mountain, The Mont‑Blanc (4,810 m/15,782 ft), and enjoy a splendid panoramic view over the Alps.

Patek Philippe Museum

In a building from the early 20th century, the Patek Philippe Museum exhibits collections of horology and enameling of Genevese, Swiss and European origin, from the 16th to the 20th century.

Mamco

The museum exhibits a broad range of works from the early 1960s to the present day. Its installations, videos, paintings, photographs, and sculptures come to Mamco on loan from public and private collections, as gifts, as artists’ deposits or as acquisitions. In a convivial manner inspired by the spirit of Marcel Duchamp, Mamco aims to provoke people to reconsider their understanding of contemporary art and of museums.
