Conseils des habitants
Promenade des Bastion is about 10min walk and has a playground, chess boards, restaurant, etc. If you’re here over December-January definitely head to Bastion for the amazing Christmas market and ice skating rink!
My other favourite park in Geneva; very kid friendly with a kids play area and sand pit. A small buvette selling drinks and snacks as well as a Victorian style pavillion cafe/restaurant. Also home to giant size chess and checkers, as well as the statues of the reformers. Right next to the old town…
Beautiful park in the city center, University Bastions, and the "Reformation Wall"
Lined by the oldest building of the University and by the mur des réformateurs, this parc is one of the best in town.

“The opera house in Geneva. The tickets are not cheap but the acoustics is ok and you often have recitals with international artists.”

“The Museum of Art and History is the city's largest and one of its most important institutions. The museum is housed within a building designed by Marc Camoletti and constructed from 1903 to 1910; the building's exhibition space covers four floors and 7,000m². the building itself is a treasure with an inner courtyard, and a façade featuring sculptures by Paul Amlehn and a triangular gable with an allegorical depiction of the arts. In a frieze on the upper section of the façade, there are the names of Genevan artists. The collections are divided into thematic categories focusing on Applied Arts, Fine Art, and archaeology. There is an art section in the museum with paintings from the middle ages to the 20th century including works by Konrad Witz, Rembrandt, Modigliani, and Rodin. An Applied Arts section has Byzantine art, medieval weapons, silverware and historic musical instruments among the collection. Part of the museum has been turned into the 17th century interior of the Lower Castle Zizers complete with wood paneling and furniture. In the archaeology, the section pieces from prehistoric Europe, ancient Egypt, African, Greek, and Roman cultures. Other interesting pieces in the collection are medieval stained glass, 12th-century armor, Swiss watches, and Greek vases.”

“Sure you can see the water fountain from afar but actually going there is a whole other experience. In the summer you can rent a small boat for up to 6 people without a license and there are lots of activities for locals and tourists. There are also restaurants and bars around if you want to relax and take a break. ”
