Nestled between the mountain peaks of the Alps and the hills of the Jura, the French-speaking city of Geneva is located in the bay where the Rhone leaves Lake Geneva. “The Capital of Peace” is the European headquarters of the UNO and headquarters of the Red Cross, with its humanitarian tradition and the world-famous flair. The symbol of the “smallest metropolis in the world” is the Jet d’eau, a water fountain with a 140-meter-high water stream on the edge of Lake Geneva. Geneva is Switzerland’s most international city because it is home to the European headquarters of the United Nations. In addition to the convention center, Geneva is also a center for culture and history, for trade fairs and exhibitions. The “Horloge Fleuri”, the clock of flowers in the English Garden, is a world-renowned symbol of the Geneva watch industry. Thanks to the international mix of different nations, the range of entertainment is large and diverse. Geneva’s nightlife is unexpectedly colorful and intense, with people and music from all corners of the world. On the dance floors one joins everyone from the jet set and elegant diplomats to black dressed rockers and relaxed weekend goers.
