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.

While I did not really understand the history of it, I still enjoyed walking by the park and encountering this wall. There is a university opposite the wall and it was a great place to visit too.

A lovely park with the wall as a highlight. It's great to see. Children may also enjoy the giant chess, draughts and table tennis.

The Reformation wall is an important part of both Geneva's and Christianity's history, and well worth a visit even if just while enjoying strolling round attractive parts of Geneva. There are 4 main statues, each 5 metres high, of Calvin, Knox, Farel and Beza as well as 6 smaller (3 metre) statues of other Protestant luminaries including Prince William the... More

When I arrived in Geneva I went to my hotel and decided to do some sight seeing. I was exploring the old town and after some minutes of walking i was surprised to see a lot of people playing with huge chess pieces on the paved ground It was also nice to see children ice skating near the chess players...
