Geneva is located in the western most corner of Switzerland. It is situated on the shores of Lake Geneva, Europe's largest lake and the Rhone river. To the west, are the Jura mountains and to the east, the French Alps.

It has excellent air links with most major cities in Europe and is a hub of Europe's highway network. Originally settled by the Romans, Geneva became important firstly as a trading town in the middle ages and then as a haven for persecuted Protestants from the rest of Europe. It became part of Switzerland in 1814 and in 1864 began its association with international politics and human rights when the Red Cross was founded here. Today Geneva is widely recognised as the city of Peace.

Geneva plays host to some 190 international organisations - the UN European headquarters, the UN Conference for Trade and Development (UNCTAD), the International Labour Organisation (ILO), the World Health Organisation (WHO), and the High Commission for Refugees (UNHCR). It is in the French speaking part of Switzerland but due to the multicultural nature of its population you may hear almost any other language being spoken.

Must See in Geneva

Geneva's lakefront is one of the city's greatest assets. Stroll the promenades around the lake and soak up the atmosphere in one of the lakeside parks or cafes. For a unique view of the city, take a boat cruise.

Geneva's most famous monument, The Jet d'eau, is the world's tallest water fountain and spouts a column of water as high as 450 feet in the air. On a clear day you can see the Mont-Blanc.

For a different view of the city, climb up the steps inside the north tower of St Peter's Cathedral to see a fabulous panorama overlooking the city and the lake. Geneva's ancient cobbled Old Town offers a living glimpse of the past.

Geneva has more than thirty museums and art galleries which capture the rich and vibrant history of the city including the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Museum and the Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art (MAMCO).

Geneva has everything to offer the shopper from window shopping on the fabulously expensive shops on Rue de Rive and Rue du Rhone where fashions and jewellery line Geneva's most extravagant streets to the Plainpalais Flea Market, the city's largest outdoor flea market to buy Antiques, records, vintage clothing and other curios.

Geneva is the perfect base for exploring the surrounding countryside. Whether you enjoy boating, hiking, biking, wine tasting or the ultimate Switzerland ski vacation, Geneva offers easy access to all of these. It also easy to do day trips to the nearby towns of Montreux, Chamonix and Lausanne.
