Visitor information

Geneva was recently voted "Europe’s Leading City Break Destination 2017" for the third time in four years. Situated along the banks of Lake Geneva at the foot of the Alps, Geneva is one of Europe’s most beautiful cities. Its most famous monument, Jet d'Eau, is the world's tallest water fountain and provides a constant landmark for exploring the city. The ancient Old Town offers a living glimpse of the past while Geneva's more than thirty museums and art galleries capture the rich and vibrant history of the city including the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Museum and the The Globe of Science and Innovation (CERN).

The headquarters of the World Health Organization, World Trade Organization, European headquarters of the United Nations, the International Committee of the Red Cross, along with some 200 other international organisations, including not-for-profits, are all to be found in this city.
