  • The Broken Chair is a memorial to victims of landmines and cluster bombs. It is located near the United Nations Office at Geneva. This is a must-see attractions for couples, families and big and small...  more »
  • Photo does not seem much, but live it imposes enough. I think getting the effect that aims to.

  • Most excites contemplate the Chair, that the own Palace of Nations. From below, the 4 foot twisted, is a good representation of what symbolizes. Access is from the vicinity of the Palace, free, down a few meters is the Botanical Garden. There are different trams that will take you there. We arrived with the 8, ends there closely.

  • There aren't many things to see in Geneva, but this is one of them. It stands tall and because it is broken, it really strikes you. It is right outside the side entrance of the UN, so it makes it even more symbolic. Usually not very busy around the chair, so you can get some nice shots, particularly at sunset.
  • Nice big iconic scuplture can be reached by trams and buses. the squre where the sculpture is just infront of UN. also the starting point of walking tour.
  • Ironic but banal installation that kills what remains of the now barricaded main UN gate during the day. Thankfully, it has been only dimly if at all lit at night lately, allowing one to appreciate the square's expanse and impressive urban design. Would be more at home up the road by the active Appia gate and the ICRC.
  • Nice square I'm front of Palais de Nations
  • This is a sight to behold. It is quite big. I didn't know what it stood for when I first saw it, but search for Broken Chair to learn more.
