Geneva brings the world to one small city with a huge expat population and the highest number of international organizations in any one city.
You'll get in some beach time at Bains des Paquis and Plage de Port-Choiseul. Get some cultural insight at Cathedrale de St-Pierre and Patek Philippe Museum. There's much more to do: admire the local landmark of The Geneva Water Fountain, see the interesting displays at International Red Cross and Red Crescent Museum, appreciate the history behind Reformation Wall (Mur de la Reformation), and test your problem-solving skills at popular escape rooms.
