Geneva, Switzerland
GENEVA AT A GLIMPSE – EVERYTHING A METROPOLIS CAN OFFER
Imagine a place that can bring the world together. Situated along the banks of Lake Geneva at the foot of the Alps, Geneva sparkles as one of Europe's most beautiful cities. Home to the European headquarters of the United Nations, Geneva has a long history of diversity and tolerance.

In Geneva world-class entertainment, top-rated restaurants and unlimited opportunities for recreation are all easily accessible. The city offers international cuisine as well as its delicious local cuisine. We recommend trying a caprese salad with locally grown ingredients.

In the afternoons breathe in the fresh air of the lake on a stroll along the promenades or catch a musical firework display during the Geneva festival. Its diverse range of cultural landmarks and museums makes Geneva a unique experience. Here are some of our recommendations:
  • United Nations building
  • Red Cross Museum
  • Art and History Museum
  • Jet d'Eau

Geneva's most famous monument, Jet d'Eau, is the world's tallest water fountain offers stunning views of the Alps beyond and the towering it.

The Old Town of the second most populous city in Switzerland is a unique Gothic maze of cobblestone streets topped by historic Saint Peter's Cathedral and the Town Hall where the League of Nations and the Red Cross were founded. There are over 30 museums and galleries in this city including the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Museum and the Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art.

In Geneva, there is something for everyone. You can take a leisurely stroll through the Bastions Park, play a game at the life-size chess board or cross the river to experience the bohemian burg of the Carouge neighborhood and its famous jazz clubs. Party-goers can find a music gig or join a themed party at one of many nightclubs in the center.

Be sure to check out Geneva’s famous Market Street where you can go window-shopping and buy a Swiss watch. Visit Geneva Switzerland - the world's most compact metropolis and "Peace Capital".
