When booking a long weekend away in Geneva I had no idea what there was to see there! I’ve already shared with you the sights of jet d’eau, Mont-Salève Cable Car and the Botanical Gardens. So, what else is there to see?
Here’s me walking towards ‘Broken Chair’ which is 12 meters high! This chair sculpture has one broken leg to symbolise opposition to land mines. It is the masterpiece of Paul Vermeulen who is co-founder and director of Handicap International Suisse.
These pretty fountains are just by the broken chair too. Run through them if you don’t mind getting a bit wet!
The Red Cross Museum is a must visit. We visited the permanent exhibition and were really impressed by the layout and thought that had gone into it. I went away having learnt a lot. They also have temporary exhibitions.
And the Cathedral has stunning stained glass inside.
My favourite day was my visit to the Lavaux Valley, which isn’t far from the capital and is so very worth the visit to see these kind of views…
