  • Located across the road along the waterfront promenade, the Monument Brunswick is easy to locate as it is huge and obviously different from the surrounding buildings. Built in 1879 as a mausoleum for ...  more »
  • Lovely little area, nice cafe behind it with fur seat covers and blankets for when it's a little colder - can see the monument from the cafe. Nice find.  more »

  • Beautiful place but nothing special. The gate was closed, so was not possible to see closer.
  • Close to the railway and next to the lake, a lively park and stunning views of the Mont Blanc if the weather is good.
  • Pretty cool little monument and park. Past by it the previous day, then came back in the AM to check if out.
  • It's a neat structure with lots of detail, but it's set in a tiny park. A cool thing to pass by on a walk through the Paquis, but nothing to make a specific trip for.
  • Interesting piece of history along your walk by the lake Geneva.

Where to stay in Geneva

In the elegant city of Geneva, a little shuteye doesn't come cheap. A number of relatively expensive hotels surround the lakefront, a prime location for visitors here; note that these tend to fill up for conferences and trade shows, so plan accordingly. More budget-minded travelers can look into options closer to the airport, which is a quick 15-minute ride on public transport into the city. While there a very few family-owned guesthouses and hotels, there are a handful of hostels--though these too are priced pretty steep. You can also find more affordable options in the outlying cities of Annemasse and Gaillard.
