We did a day trip to Geneva, there is really not much to do as far as tourism so we ended up sitting down at one of the restaurants at the Place Bourg du Four almost the whole afternoon. We had a great time people watching and drinking Spritzers and white wine. There are a few restaurants and an ice... More

The meeting of many streets in the old part. The different levels make good picture angles. Nice restaurants around to relax and watch.

Good rosti and local specialities including chevre chaud. Traditional atmosphere and very popular spot. Go elsewhere for dessert.

Place Bourg du Four is in the heart of the Old Town and is Geneva's oldest square. It even has a small fountain filled with baskets of flowers that give it a vibrant splash of colour. It is the best place in the old town to sit and watch the world go by with a nice cup of freshly brewed... More

It is in the Old town of Geneva and it is interesting to visit and sit in a terrace and enjoy your view and the people walking around. You should visit the whole old town xxx

Anything that dates to the times of the Romans has history. This place backs up to some of the most important places of The Reformation, some of the most important centers of learning in Europe, and some of the most important determinations of law in the land. And they have ice cream, chocolate, wine and restaurants.

The few bars and restaurant around this place are pretty expensive, but its charm is really worth a stop. You feel like you have jumped into the past century and appreciate the calm of the old town. Ideal for a walk, a romantic stop or a family adventurous promenade.

When the weather's nice, Place Bourg du Four is an excellent place for people watching. There are at least three cafés that put tables out on the square. You can have a drink, eat a crepe or a sandwich and just enjoy the atmosphere of Geneva's Old Town.
