Geneva - the 'Global Village'
Geneva - the 'Global Village'

Geneva is located right in the heart of Europe, easily accessibly by air, road and high-speed trains from European cities. Known as The Global Village, Geneva is the smallest of the big capitals and host to international organisations and NGOs.

In one of Europe’s most beautiful regions, with its lake surrounded by magnificent mountain scenery, Geneva is the gateway to the Alps. The cradle of watchmaking and home to the greatest Swiss chocolate makers, Geneva promises you an original and enriching stay.
