  • I expect the history of the Red Cross, possibly reenactments, a presentation of the activities of ICRC and national, of the principles and this is not the case. We have a presentation of the 3 objectives of the red cross through some posters objects and testimonies. I stay on my hunger...

  • The Museum of the Red Cross highlights the work carried out by this important organization. Are three pretty intense environments that allow us to have another vision of reality, especially with regard to the poorest countries and political and war refugees. Meet this job makes you cherish more the things you have.

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.
