Geneva lies idyllically between Alpine peaks and vineyards by the largest lake in Western Europe. The city symbol is the “Jet d’eau” a fountain with a 140-metre-high water jet at the edge of Lake Geneva. The old town invites guests to stroll the lakeside promenades, countless parks, lively side streets and elegant shops. Try a visit to the UNO, International Red Cross or Red Crescent to gain an insight into the work of these humanitarian organisations. Geneva is also a centre for culture and history, International artists perform in the Grand Théâtre and Geneva Opera House, and an extremely diverse range of museums of jewelry, watches and musical clocks.
