The architecture is breathtaking and should also give you a sense of the place, and the influences under which the city has evolved. Afterwards, take a walk through the Parc des Bastions and discover the famous Reformation Wall that shows the four great figures of Calvinism, an integral and symbolic part of Switzerland's history. Walk up the hill to the Old Town where you can enjoy an authentic Swiss lunch at Les Armures. With a bit of luck, you can have the table where President Clinton first discovered the real taste of Swiss cheese fondue. Alternatively you can return to the hotel for lunch at the Woods restaurant, where you can taste a huge array of great wines.

Geneva’s lakeside parades the city’s greatest must-see places, such as the Jet d’Eau, admired all over the world. From its quays full of flower beds, the visitor has an exceptional view of the lake and the mountains. Enjoy a glass of Pinot Noir with the magnificent view of Lake Leman front of you and take time to enjoy this idyllic setting.

The Geneva Water Fountain (Jet d'Eau)

he lakeshore’s star attraction is the elegant water fountain, dazzling visitors as it shoots 140 metres into the sky. Originally a simple security valve at the Coulouvrenière hydraulic factory, the Jet d'Eau has become the landmark of Geneva. Its millions of air bubbles will immediately put you under its spell. The fountain came into being by chance. In 1886, a hydraulic power station was built to deliver water under pressure from the Rhône to the city’s fountains, households and factories. One evening, pressure build-ups forced the engineers to install a special pressure relief valve. This marked the birth of the Jet d’Eau. The ephemeral work of art soon became a tourist attraction and was moved closer to the lakeside. With time, water column grew taller. Since 1951, an autonomous pumping station has propelled 500 litres of water per second to a height of 140 metres at a speed of 200 km/h (124 mph).


A Globe of Science and Innovation (CERN)

The Globe of Science and Innovation is a landmark for CERN and a symbol of sustainable development for all. It is 27 metres high and 40 metres in diameter, which is about the size of the St. Peter's Basilica's dome in Rome! A unique visual landmark by day and by night, the Globe of Science and Innovation is a metaphor for Planet Earth. On the ground floor , the ‘Universe of Particles’ exhibition takes the visitor on a journey deep into the world of particles and back to the Big Bang.


A Symbol for Peace - The Broken Chair

‘Broken Chair’ is the work of sculptor Daniel Berset. It was made in 1997 for the NGO Handicap International. Its message is simple: remember the victims of landmines, urge your government to promote a ban on landmines. To illustrate this combat, the Broken Chair stands on three legs, the fourth being splintered half way up. The Chair stands proudly to a height of 12 metres and has an air of dignity. Nearby: the European headquarters of the United Nations, guided tours.
