Sightseeing i Genève

Kyrka
“A small historical jewel with medieval charm! The largest historic city in Switzerland, the old town is dominated by St. Peter's Cathedral, the centre of the Reformation. Climb the 157 steps to the top of the tower for a unique panorama of the city. Believe us, the panoramic view is well worth the effort! Then lose yourself in the surrounding narrow streets full of charm. Each of them is home to one of the many treasures of Geneva's history. Here’s a little secret: many secret passageways link up the streets of the old city, don’t hesitate to find them and follow them! ”

“A few steps from St Peter's Cathedral, the Place du Bourg-de-Four is at the very heart of Geneva’s Old Town. Even in the past, roads leading to Geneva led inevitably to the Place du Bourg-de-Four whose market has been of major importance since the 9th century. Over time, house heights were raised to accommodate Protestant refugees from all over Europe. Don’t miss out on a visit to this delightful square and stop for a coffee or a drink.”

“A compulsory stop at the heart of history! In the middle of the Parc des Bastions can be found the great actors of the Reformation, Jean Calvin, Guillaume Farel, Théodore de Bèze and John Knox, who await you in the form of giant statues and bas-reliefs. Post Tenebras Lux, the motto of Geneva, is engraved in this wall. Erected between 1909 and 1917, the monument recalls the memory of the main events and people who in the 16th and 17th centuries fostered the spread of the Calvinist Reformation in Geneva and in the world. At the time, Geneva was the meeting point of all the followers of the Reformation. ”

Capitol Building
“An air of peace and the winds of freedom. The Palais des Nations houses the European headquarters of the United Nations, and is the largest UN centre after New York. The Palais opens its doors daily and provides fascinating guided tours!”
