Visit The CERN Globe

CERN (European Organization for Nuclear Research) remains mysterious about its discoveries. A massive particle accelerator hides in its basement. What are the center's activities and how do they explain how the space around us functions?

Through exhibitions and educational displays, the Foundation for the Globe of Science and Innovation, located in the former Palace of Equilibrium given to CERN by the Swiss Confederation and renamed the Globe, attempts to make us understand the origins of the universe.

This is a captivating and playful invitation, which introduces visitors to the great questions of contemporary physics through the ‘Universe of Particles' exhibition.

Visit The Botanical Garden

The Conservatory and Botanical Garden is a garden of paradise that dates back to 1904. It extends over an area of ​​28 hectares close to Lake Geneva and the UN. It is home to 14,000 varieties from around the world. Winding paths, lush and colorful, take the stroller from one thematic area to another—from rock to massifs of protected plants, medicinal plants, and palm trees.

This outdoor museum is both educational and enchanting. Filled with plants of all shapes and scents, as well as animals and insects, the Botanical Garden makes your senses come alive.

Founded by the famous botanist Augustin Pyramus de Candolle in what is now Bastions Park in 1817, the Botanical Garden retains the same naturalist spirit that prevailed in the 19th century.
