Geneva brings the world to one small city with a huge expat population and the highest number of international organizations in any one city.
Appreciate the collections at Patek Philippe Museum and Musee des Suisses Dans Le Monde. Chateau de Chillon and Fondation Pierre Gianadda are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Step out of Geneva with an excursion to Swiss Vapeur Parc in Le Bouveret--about 1h 25 min away. And it doesn't end there: see the interesting displays at International Red Cross and Red Crescent Museum, make a trip to Place Bourg du Four, enjoy the sand and surf at Plage de Port-Choiseul, and explore the activities along Lake Geneva.

For reviews, photos, maps, and other tourist information, go to the Geneva trip builder.

Aberdeen, UK to Geneva is an approximately 6-hour flight. You can also take a train; or do a combination of car and train. Traveling from Aberdeen to Geneva, you'll lose 1 hour due to the time zone difference. Prepare for somewhat warmer weather when traveling from Aberdeen in July: high temperatures in Geneva hover around °C and lows are around °C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 8th (Sun) to allow enough time to travel to Doussard.
