City Guide

Sightseeing in Geneva

The Jet d’Eau, Geneva’s landmark
The lakeshore’s star attraction is the water jet, dazzling visitors as it shoots 140 metres into the sky. It is best seen from the Bains des Pâquis, this incredible ‘beach’ in the city centre where Geneva’s smart set meets for a swim, a sauna or to eat a fondue! Another exceptional vantage point: a boat cruise on the lake, offering a unique view of the Mont-Blanc!

The Old Town and its treasures
Switzerland’s biggest historical city is overlooked by St. Peter’s Cathedral, the centre of the Reformation movement. 157 steps lead to the top of its tower for a stunning view of the town. Stroll along the backstreets and discover the city’s many historical treasures.

The birthplace of fine watchmaking: from the Flower Clock to the watchmakers’ shops
It’s just a few steps from the flowers of Geneva's most famous clock to the dazzling shop windows of the Rue du Rhône, where you can find an amazing concentration of world famous watches and luxury brands. From fashion to jewellery, the great brands that give Geneva its reputation all have their own boutiques. A shopping paradise at your feet!

The Palais des Nations, symbol of Geneva, capital of peace
The European headquarters of the United Nations have become the centre of world diplomacy. Under the dome of the "Human Rights and Alliance for Civilisations' Room", many secrets are shared. And on the Place des Nations, standing in front of the monumental ‘Broken Chair’, you are reminded of Geneva’s contribution to peace and freedom

Rue du Rhône for shopping: The city welcomes her guests with ultimate luxury shopping. No brand in the luxury industry will settle away for this shopping artery.
