Geneva is like everything in Switzerland an expensive experience. Doubtlessly, the city is one of the most beautiful ones Switzerland has to offer. Even though staying, eating and shopping is anything but cheap, sightseeing is for free if you decide to walk. However, you still need to know what to do and see best in Geneva.
The Jet d’Eau is the touristic landmark of Geneva. At night, the fountain is enlightened with different colors which makes it more interesting.
It may be interesting to know that the water has a speed of 200 km/h when it comes out.
With small streets and mostly historical buildings, Geneva’s old town is exciting to explore!
But be aware of the differences in altitude – discovering will get strenuous from time to time.
Reminding of the international effects of the Genevan reformation, the Reformation Wall is a monument of a historical event.
Even though it looks pretty old, it has actually been created in the early 20th century.
Originally being constructed to remind of the Swiss tradition of watch-making, the Flower Clock is an unordinary way to tell the time.
Similarly to the Jet d’Eau, the Flower Clock is enlightened in the dark.
The Rhône is a river flowing through Geneva. When taking a walk next to it, it is enjoyable to watch seagulls “fighting” for food.
Moreover, the buildings on the other side of the river provide panoramic views!
Accordingly to the Reformation Wall, the cathedral is also Protestant. Being “hidden” in the old town, it is probably that it will be found anyway – with or without searching for it.
Even though being pretty big, it is not as pompous as most catholic pendants.
