Geneva Switzerland

Spread across Lake Geneva's western tip and home to several international organisations like the Red Cross and United Nations, Geneva is a global city that effortlessly blends tourism, business and diplomacy.

Geneva offers a range of cultural and historical museums where you can explore its illustrious past. The latest in contemporary art can be discovered at MAMCO Genève while the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Museum provides insights into the humanitarian works of this eponymous organisation. Strolling through Old Town, you’ll come across heritage landmarks like St Pierre Cathedral, Place du Bourg-de-Four, Maison Tavel and more.

With Lake Geneva lapping at its shores and the Alps in its backyard, Geneva serves as a great base for outdoor activities and day trips to nearby places like Chamonix and Lausanne. You can experience the natural beauty of the region within the city too. The centrally located Bastions Park – featuring leafy walking paths, giant chess boards and the famous Reformation Wall – is an ideal spot to spend a peaceful day by yourself or with loved ones.

There’s no dearth of things to do in Geneva, both adventurous and relaxing. You can enjoy rafting on the Arve or Dranse rivers while Bains des Pâquis is a popular local spot for swimming. Additionally, it offers beautiful views of the city and Jet d'Eau – the Geneva Water Fountain. While in the area, you can stroll along the waterfront promenade or take a boat ride on Lake Geneva too.
