    ...not the monument itself. However, it was surrounded by cabins, plastic and temporary railings. Decided not to enter as I didn't feel safe. The drunk nursing a can of something on a bench didn't hel...  more »

    Interesting historical burial monument in park setting on lakefront in an otherwise busy area of the city. Definitely unique!  more »

    The monument's original and present a rich decoration. Worth a detour from the old town or the edge of the Lake

  • 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.
