The second-largest city in Switzerland, Geneva is famous not only for its beautiful parks and scenery, but also its importance to global politics. The city is home to the European headquarters of the United Nations and frequently brings together heads of state from around the world.
To reach the Geneva hotels and city center from the nearby Genève Aéroport, you can hail a taxi or take advantage of any number of local rail services (such as the IC, ICN, or IR lines). Once you arrive at one of the hotels in Geneva, you may want to look into Geneva rental cars so you can easily explore all that this lovely Swiss town has to offer. You'll want to start with a tour of some of the most beautiful outdoor spots in Geneva. Take a look at the oft-photographed Jet d'Eau, a fountain that sprays a stream of water almost 460 feet into the air, located where the Rhône meets Lake Geneva. Geneva has also been called the "city of parks," so be sure to schedule a visit to one of its many green spaces while you're there. If you lose track of time, don't worry—they also happen to have a giant clock made out of flowers. Aside from the natural landscape, Geneva offers visitors a number of museums, galleries, and monuments to visit. A notable attraction is the Place des Nations, in the heart of the city's international center, which features fountains surrounding a giant sculpture of a broken chair and commemorates the victims of mining disasters.
