Geneva brings the world to one small city with a huge expat population and the highest number of international organizations in any one city.
Kick off your visit on the 9th (Fri): see the interesting displays at Patek Philippe Museum. Here are some ideas for day two: admire the local landmark of The Geneva Water Fountain, don't miss a visit to The Flower Clock, and then explore the activities along Lake Geneva.

To see ratings, reviews, where to stay, and other tourist information, you can read our Geneva online trip itinerary planner .

London, UK to Geneva is an approximately 4.5-hour flight. You can also take a train; or do a combination of flight, tram, and train. You'll lose 1 hour traveling from London to Geneva due to the time zone difference. When traveling from London in August, plan for somewhat warmer days in Geneva, with highs around 30°C, while nights are about the same with lows around 16°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 11th (Sun) early enough to go by car to Interlaken.

Nestled between Lake Thun and Lake Brienz in the heart of the Jungfrau region, Interlaken became popular for its proximity to the mountains and lakes of the Bernese Oberland region.

There's lots more to do: admire all the interesting features of Jungfraujoch, take in the dramatic natural features at Aletsch Glacier, get to know the fascinating history of Kleine Scheidegg, and fly like a bird with a parasailing or paragliding tour.
