Geneva Travel Guide

Things to do in Geneva

Sightseeing in Geneva offers something for everyone with historic, cultural, religious and natural attractions galore, all within or very near to the city and best visited during the summer months.

The most obvious Geneva attraction is Lake Geneva, the largest lake in central Europe, and its Jet d''Eau, the huge fountain that shoots water 150 metres up into the air. Jardin Anglais is a garden that has been frequented by scribes and philosophers for years, and the nearby Ile Rousseau monument is dedicated to Jacques Rousseau and the inhabitants of Geneva.

Other things to see in Geneva include St Peter''s Cathedral, a must for travellers interested in religious landmarks, and the Town Hall (Hotel de Ville) is another impressive building. Maison Tavel (believed to be the oldest private house in Geneva) and the 18th century, Italian-style suburb of Carouge are historic Geneva attractions. With so much to offer, sightseeing in Geneva is a rewarding experience.
