Interesting historical monument

If you are interested in the Reformation, a must see. The park itself is great for kids (playground and giant chess pieces) in summer and in winter there is often a skating rink

Spent a day walking around Geneva. I would not necessarily need to come back to this attraction, but it is worth the visit. All in all Geneva was a very pretty and clean city to walk around, Reformation Wall was an interesting find.

You cannot visit Geneva without being in this small park and seeing the over 100 metre long Reformation Wall. Celebrating Geneva's fore fathers and representing the Protestant Reformation from many centuries ago this wonderfully simple, clean and well designed monument/wall is beautiful. The four main five metre high central figures, flanked either side by others and inscriptions was a designed... More

I like the big statues but to be honest if I didn't realize it like something very extra. Anyway surroundings around the wall is very interesting and includes for example big chess which you can play with and also ice sliding yard where you can rent a skates and enjoy little of fun on ice.

Take the tram and visit it if you haven't gone before. It's in a small park as well which is worth a look. The flee market isn't far from here if you're there on certain days (a few stops from there).

Must see if you are interested in Geneva and its history. Those 4 thinkers paved the way for some religious mini-revolution

This is not quite Mount Rushmore but a shy, Swiss attempt at standing behind its founding fathers. Intimidating in size and sobriety, you should not leave the city before seeing it.

This monumental wall of more than 100 meters in length was constructed in 1917 and commemorates the leaders of the Reformation in Geneva, Farel, Calvin, Beze and Knox. The non ornamental quality of the monument was deliberate and in keeping with the philosophy of the reformers. Low reliefs with explanatory texts recall the origins of the Reformation and the repercussions... More

Nobody has to feel obliged to stop and to know in deep detail everything, but to go to the Reformation Wall just to take a photo of it is a pity. Its story and everything you can learn is much more than what many people might expect, even if they are not interested in religions or similar. The wall itself... More

The reformation Wall is in the Parc Des Bastions, a very beautiful park. The wall is very well taken and a landmark of a history chance! Must do for history lovers.
