Planning your trip

Geneva, the second-most populous city in Switzerland, is a picturesque, modern metropolis located where the Rhone River exits Lake Geneva. The city’s amazing views come from the two mountain ranges that circle the city, and many other landmarks—including the fountain in the lake, known as Jet d’Eau.

Geneva is a truly global city, and is the European headquarters for the United Nations and is headquarters for several UN agencies. Other headquarters in Geneva include the World Trade Organization, World Health Organization, World Economic Forum, International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies. The Geneva Conventions were signed here, one reason the city has been given the nickname the “Peace Capital.”
