Geneva enjoys a worldwide reputation as a conference city; it embodies the creativity of science and technology, a vigorous business sector, and has a special cultural appeal with unmistakable flair and charm. Geneva is an ideal destination with its central location in Europe, served by an excellent transport and communication infrastructure. Draped around the deep blue waters of Lac Léman, Geneva has grown wealthy and influential as the cultural and economic focus of French-speaking Switzerland. It is also an international city and home to many global institutions such as the World Health Organization, International Red Cross, United Nations office, International Labour Organization, International Telecommunication Union, World Meteorological Organization, World Intellectual Property Organization and the European Organization for Nuclear Research.
Geneva’s centre is small enough to walk around. For the suburbs you will need to take a tram or bus. Daily passes are provided free of charge to Geneva hotel guests, courtesy of the Geneva Tourist Board.
