We stumbled upon this by accident and the park was a tad sketchy but very impressive monument. I'd have to read more about the history behind all the figures but if you are nearby, it's worth walking through the park which is very tranquil and has a nice fountain in front.

Since I am a Knox, I was thrilled at taking my picture with John Knox here at the Reformation Wall. These really are large statues.

A pretty expansive monument dedicated to leaders of the Reformation that is found in the middle of a beautiful park near the university. It is worth the time to head over there and grab a few peaceful minutes while admiring the wall.

Quite large with English on the right side of the centre. It's within a nice park for relaxing. An inspirational monument.

The reformation wall has a nice history and depicts the contribution of the protestants in the early times of geneva formation. The wall is in the bastion park (parc de bastion, I believe I have spelled it wrong :p) which also has the big chess and draft board were people in the evening come and play and relax. It has...

This is a huge wall marking the history of religious reformation. It has many dates and important facts on it. It's missing Martin Luther but probably because it's based on Swiss history and not reformation overall. Worthwhile and in a pretty park.

Inspirational and thought-provoking. We visited Geneva with our son and daughter-in-law, and felt a kinship with our reformational roots.

Located in a very nice park, this attraction was moving, especially when learning the history and story behind it's creation. The Wall really helps you understand the formation of the modern day Switzerland country.

Geneva was at the heart of the Reformation and the wall highlights key moments in history, both in Switzerland and further afield. Much larger than I remembered it from a previous visit.

The Reformation Wall is one of the "must see" in Geneva. The surrounding park is a great place for relaxation. We saw many people doing slackline, there is a corner with giant chess, or one can just sit and enjoy the atmosphere.
