Geneva is home to the International Red Cross, the European branch of the UN and the World Health Organization. Apart from being a central figure in global organizations, it is also the most densely populated city in Switzerland’s French-speaking region. The urban sprawl is made more elegant by the beauty of its lakefront scenery.

Leisure at its best

The vibrant lakefront is Geneva’s testament to its history and reputation as one of Europe’s most eye-catching cities. Dominating the harbor is the iconic Jet d’Eau Fountain that makes a wondrous sight to see every time it shoots 459 feet of water up in the air. To fully enjoy the breathtaking charm of Geneva, take a cruise along River Rhone, head to Cologny for its beach, or better yet, take the kids to one of Europe’s largest water parks, Aquaparc.

Geneva’s pleasant icons

Aside from Geneva’s iconic fountain, the city encourages you to get acquainted with its other fixtures along its pleasant tourist trail. The Town Hall and St. Peter’s Cathedral are some of the impressive landmarks in the city, as well as Maison Travel, the oldest private house in Geneva. Before taking on Old Town, Place Neuve is the ideal entry point to Swiss culture. The city’s cultural hub is home to Grand Theater, Rath Museum and Conservatory of Music. Be further inspired, as did the philosophers and literary greats, while walking around Jardin Anglais. The monument of Jacques Rousseau is proof of the city’s intellectual legacy.

Quintessential Swiss

More of Geneva’s decadence can be gained from its rich selections of chocolates in La Chocolaterie Rohr, which is the best among the world. Shopping’s main hub is concentrated in an area called Rues Basses composed of shopping streets filled with the city’s fair share of watches, jewelery, apparel, antiques, and of course, Swiss Army Knife.
