Seek out the historic center of the city, transfer easily to the Geneva International Airport, or enjoy stunning views of the Alps when you book with one of our Geneva Hotels.
Perched on the banks of glittering Lake Geneva with the finely etched Alps in the background, Geneva is the center of the French-speaking portion of Switzerland, as well as multiple international organizations. Inhabited since pre-Roman times, Geneva’s strategic location led to a vital role in 20th century diplomacy, most famously the signing of the Geneva Conventions.
Whether by night or by day, you can’t miss the Jet d’Eau, Geneva’s famous fountain that shoots streams of water more than 450 feet in the air. Don’t get too close, though, or you’ll be soaked! The city’s hilly Old Town is dominated by the Cathedrale St. Pierre; duck through an underground passage to visit the International Museum of the Reformation and learn even more of the city’s rich history. Finally, as the former home of the League of Nations, the grand Palais des Nations is sure to inspire superlatives.
Delve deeper into Geneva by ambling through one of its beautiful parks, enjoying the range of world cuisine, or by visiting the Museum of the International Committee of the Red Cross, which was founded here. As evening sets in, the Grand Theatre de Genève and the Victoria Hall stage operas and classical music concerts.
Long a destination for luxury goods, Geneva is especially known for its watches and chocolate. Begin your shopping adventure on the Rue du Rhone and Rue du Marche, especially if you’re on the hunt for a new timepiece. The Old Town is the place to look for antiques and art, while the Plaine de Plainpalais translates to a vibrant flea market. For bohemian chic and independent stores, look no further than the bargain-filled Rue des Paquis.
Geneva prides itself on its streamlined public transportation system. The Geneva Cointrin International Airport is attached to a train station that serves multiple French destinations.
