Geneva certainly isn’t short on wonderful attractions. To make your visit that little bit more enjoyable, we’ve earmarked the top 3 must see attractions.
Geneva Tour Cruise
One hour to admire Mont-Blanc, the UN and the shores of Lake Geneva from another angle.
A one-hour cruise for a great getaway! Sail out from the harbour and discover the beautiful shores of Geneva. From the “Pierres du Niton” to the “Pointe à la Bise”, you’ll enjoy an unparalleled view of Mont-Blanc, monuments, famous villas, the UN as well as parks and gardens.
The Botanical timekeeper – flower clock
Let “Flower Power” take you away!
The clock, situated at a corner of the Jardin Anglais, was created for the first time in 1955 and contains about 6,500 flowers and plants. The floral arrangements change according to the season. The flower clock is not only pretty, it also tells the time with Swiss precision – the time you see is transmitted by satellite. Another important detail – the seconds-hand is 2.5 metres long, the world’s longest!
Next to the Place de Neuve, the Parc des Bastions offers a delightful promenade lined with trees, where you can walk from one beautiful monument to another.
This lush park below the Old Town is situated in the heart of the city. It is here that Geneva created its first botanical garden. In and around the Parc des Bastions you will find the world-renowned Reformation Wall and the leading reformers, the Palais Eynard, seat of the city government, and the old university building with its library. The former bandstand is now a restaurant. On its side, a giant checkers game and chessboard attract players and spectators alike.
