Last Saturday I went to Geneva for a one day visit. I bought a return ticket from Bern to Geneva including city ticket at 105 franc and the travel times about 2 hours 30 minutes, arrived at Geneve-Cornavin Train Station at 11.00am. Then I took No 13 Tram to Nations where the Place des Nations Gate is located. The first... More

If you only have one day to visit Geneva, make sure you put UN or 'Palais des Nations' at your top 5 list. This is what the town is famous for - its international organizations.

The food is not gourmet but for what is primarily a UN staff eating place it is fairly good. Large choice of food from pizzas, salad bar, grill, pasta dishes and selection of meat and fish dishes, that vary daily. Nice selection of desserts.

The gardens were closed on the Sunday we visited, which was a shame, but this is one of the photo opportunities you've got to take, standing next to the UN sign on the front wall!

My brother took us there for a morning visit and its a gorgeous place with lots of gardens and of course the world flags. The library is very cool, the restaurant des delegues is excellent (exquisite cuisine and atmosphere very private).Also they have small exhibitions. Must take a picture at the main entrance with the UN logo and flags, and... More

We went early on a Saturday morning to the Palais des Nations. We didn't go inside but I just wanted to look at the property, walk around, see the flags and take some photos of the Broken Chair. It was quick and easy to get there on the #15 tram, which we took there and back. It runs very frequently.

I only had one afternoon available in Geneva, so I decided to rush to see the UN facilities. You really need to check when the available tours are (according to season!), so that you don't end up waiting around too long. Also, take into consideration that the check-in procedure (security?) is very slow. The security guards act more like bureaucrats... More

I went late in the evening and the building was closed. However it was worth a visit to see the building and the giant chair.
