  • Reasonable-sized park with a kiosk and a rather formal restaurant. Also outdoor chess games. Popular with the locals.
  • A nice place to spend weekend. The park is quite close to city centre and has some good kids activities
  • Very clean, beautiful and historical place.. they have 3 d chess stations to play.. and you will find people always playing .. it has a good restaurant and am ice cream parlour too!! U can also visit the reformation wall in the park.
  • This park used to be a botanical garden. That probably explains very quiet atmosphere and big diversity of plants and trees in here. At the entrance from the side of Grand Theater there are big boards of chess and checkers available for everyone to play - elderly make use of this very often, which is interesting to watch/observe.
  • Wonderfull view and place to spend time. Nice lighting and a very good spot gor photography.

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.
