Sightseeing and things to do in Geneva

Magnificently situated on the banks of the largest lake in Central Europe, between the Jura Mountains and the Alps, Geneva has all that is needed to charm you.

Travellers from near and far are attracted by the glistening Lake Leman (Lake Geneva), the close proximity of beautiful Mont Blanc, the secret of Chillon Castle and the vineyards along the lake coast. Geneva also hosts international exhibitions at the Palexpo and concerts in the Arena Hall, which means there’s also lots of things to do.
