GENEVA

LAKESIDE SOPHISTICATION

This is Switzerland’s slick and cosmopolitan city. 

 

Geneva is home to the headquarters of the World Trade Organization, World Health Organization, and the International Committee of the Red Cross. Pair that with the abundance of luxury hotels, boutiques, jewellers, and restaurants, and we probably don’t need to tell you that this is a hotspot destination for business and pleasure.

Things to Do and Places to Go

You’ve probably heard all the stereotypes about Geneva: wealth, fondue, chocolate, and watchmaking. Of course, they all exist, but if you delve a little deeper you’ll find a lakeside city flourishing with diversity and creativity. In a city so diverse, you’ll find yourself with plenty to do, such as:

 

  • Lake Geneva: This is the largest lake in central Europe and offers awe-inspiring splendour

  • Jet d’Eau: This jet propels five hundred litres of water per second to a height of 140 metres

  • Vielle Ville: Spend a couple of hours satisfying your curiosity in the largest historic centre in Switzerland

  • CERN: This is where historic scientific experiments are being conducted at the world’s largest particle physics laboratory

 

Public transport in Switzerland is extensive, reliable, safe, and easy to use. Like all cities in Switzerland, Geneva is easy to navigate on foot, by bicycle, or by public transport.
