A Quick Guide To Geneva Switzerland
Go For High-Street Shopping
For high-street shopping, Bongenie Grieder has an amazing portfolio of international and local brands, such as Fuzz Not Fur and Avinas, both of which are Swiss brands. Since 1891 this has been a meeting point for the latest fashion and also a great place to meet for lunch or coffee.
The Wild Girls Deli on the 6th floor serves pink tapioca and delicious avocado toasts. Geneva is also known for high-end jewellery shopping. Shop or enjoy the window displays on the Rue du Rhône.
Visit The Ariana Museum
Geneva is not only home to Switzerland’s largest museum of contemporary art; it also has the Ariana Museum, an institution that specializes in glass and ceramics. One of the museum’s current exhibitions focuses on dishes that tell a story through their decorations.
Take A Book Trip On Lake Geneva
Feeling adventurous? Book a boat trip on Lake Geneva and enjoy a lunch on the boat. The beautiful Belle Epoque-style boats are becoming quite rare in Europe. Renovated in 2009, La Suisse is considered one of the most beautiful boats in the world.
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.
Enjoy Traditional Fondue At Café du Soleil
One of the oldest restaurants in the city, this is an uncomplicated venue that entices with its simplicity and sumptuous dishes.
On any given night, it brims with locals and visitors alike sharing a delicious fondue and loading up on cured meats. The menu bursts with Swiss staples and is accompanied by a great list of Swiss and French wines.
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.
