Enjoy a spot of shopping and culture in the city of Geneva

Palexpo - Geneva’s Exhibition and Congress Centre
Geneva International Airport, which boasts 935 direct flights per day, is an ideal starting point to explore the city.
Strolling along the lake shore
Palexpo, Switzerland’s foremost Convention and Exhibition Centre, hosts a myriad of exhibitions, conferences, shows and competitions throughout the year. Steps from Palexpo, you’ll find the United Nations Headquarters, located in the Palais des Nations. Two thirds of UN system activities take place in Geneva - over 10,000 meetings and conferences annually. The UN headquarters are easily accessible by public transport from the airport – bus Nº28, alighting at “Appia”. Geneva is also known as the birthplace of the Red Cross Organization. The International Red Cross and Red Crescent Museum invites its visitors to engage in an awareness-building experience. A permanent exhibition, “The Humanitarian Adventure”, offers a unique insight into humanitarian efforts – and a message of hope.
Head for Geneva’s historical centre and enjoy a leisurely walk along the banks of Lake Geneva, one of the largest lakes in Western Europe. Take time to contemplate the incomparable scenery, including the lake’s Jet-D’eau fountain - shooting around 7,000 litres of water high into the air – and the Mont Blanc, which dominates the majestic background. Climb the 157 stairs of Saint-Pierre Cathedral’s tower and admire the stunning panorama from the top. The city provides a wide range of shopping opportunities. Within the airport you’ll find a shopping centre with 100 stores and services open 7 days a week. Here you can sample some famous local specialties, from chocolate and cheese to Switzerland’s renowned watches!
