Geneva, Switzerland

Home to the European headquarters of the United Nations, Geneva has a prominent and influential position in the heart of Europe.

Almost 200,000 people call this spectacular city their home. Geneva’s most distinguished monument and the world’s tallest water fountain, the Jet d’eau, is a beautiful place to start exploring this historically rich city.

Capturing the vibrant history of the city are over thirty galleries and museums which are in the city’s ancient Old Town. While in the old town, visit the oldest house in Geneva - Maison Tavel and be bedazzled by the ancient antique boutiques.

Get a whole new perspective on the city when you take a one or two hour boat cruise or stroll around the promenades at the lake for breathtaking views.

Geneva’s parks have fun for all with life size chess boards, stunning greenery, a flower clock and plenty of space for picnics and scenic walks.

Whether you’re in the city for shopping, business or sightseeing, a visit to the renowned Market Street is absolutely essential for a true Swiss experience. If you’re in the city to shop then you’ll cherish a day at Rue de Rive and Rue du Rhone. Strike a bargain at one of the city’s largest outdoor flea markets open on Tuesdays, Fridays and Sundays from 8:00 – 17:00 come hail, rain or shine.

For splendid views of the Alps, take a ride on a gondola or start trekking up one of the many trails on the Salève Mountain. If hiking and mountains are your purpose for being in the city then take a boat or bike ride to other lakesides or a bus at Gare Routiere can take you to one of Switzerland’s famous mountain towns.

Sometimes known as the capital of cuisine in Switzerland, Geneva is home to over 1,000 restaurants. Swiss cuisine includes fondue, raclette – a traditional cheese dish, lake fish dishes, smoked sausage and a variety of casseroles
