This is a meeting point of many small streets in "Old Geneva". It has a number of cafes and restaurants and tables and chairs outside. It is the place the locals meet and a great place to sit and people watch! My wife and I visited here every day, usually for a drink after exploring the city. We also ate... More

Several choices on that square from a pub to a bakery with delicious pastries and good coffee. Good spot to observe the activity of genevans working in the area: that would be mainly state employees and court employees as on this square next to the police station you will notice the Courts of Justice building. All buildings in Geneva can... More

A great place to grab a seat outside at one of the many restaurants in the area and people watch. It's a fantastic setting with Old Town all around you, the bells from the cathedral chiming every so often and people milling about at a constant rate. This is a must-visit area while in Geneva!

Long (40 years since my first visit) a favourite spot for me is to go to Place de Bourg du Four and be surrounded with another century of buildings. In the heart of the square a magnicicent fountain filled with flowers, so typical of such town square fountains in Switzerland. There are several pubs but my favourite is right at... More

I visited the Old Town of Geneva on a Sunday morning, so it was really quiet and peaceful. Unfortunately, this also meant that all the shops were closed except for restaurants. I went a second time on a weekday, and this was when the area was really bustling with activity. So if you want to shop, do come on a... More

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.
