As you arrive in Geneva, you will be struck by the beauty of your surroundings. Situated picturesquely on the shores of Lake Geneva, the city makes an ideal location for water sports such as sailing and windsurfing.
It is also only a short drive to numerous alpine resorts. But of course Geneva is best known as a cosmopolitan city with some of the world’s finest shopping and dining opportunities. That is partly because the city is home to many international institutions, including the UN building, which is open to the public. The Jet d’Eau – a fountain that rises 140 m into the air from Lake Geneva – proclaims the city’s pride in this unique international status.
