  • This huge chair represents the insanity of land mines. The broken leg symbolises the damage landmines can make. Very popular with tourists so choose your visit time well. Easy to visit with a bus or w...  more »
  • The Nations is the place where leaders of the world's countries and scientists gather. This can be seen in front of the about 12 m high with a broken-legged Chair, which is a symbol of peace, and the mine ban warns

  • 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.
