I loved my visit to the reformation wall. Set in a peaceful park, the wall exceeded my expectations on its sheer size and elegance. Worth a visit!

Well worth a visit to see this monument. A little research beforehand will put the portrayed figures and history in context....have a look at Wikipedia. The Sunday morning we visited the site was littered with empty beer cans and vodka bottles....which was disappointing and really should not be the case as the site is of some spiritual significance for many....

The park is accessible through a tram ride from anywhere in the city and its a nice place to spend your evening relaxing in the park. The reformation wall was quiet impressive with the architecture especially if you know the history behind it. as you step out of the park on the eastern side there is a ramp that goes... More

The park itself is worth a visit and then within the park you have the lovely monument adorning a large wall. If you know the history then this will mean a little more to you. If not then you will still appreciate the beautiful art that it is.

Located within the Parc des Bastions, about a ten minute walk away from the tourist information office or number 18 tram from the train station. Very smart and large stone carving acknowledging the famous four reformers from the 16th/17th century. Nice park when the weather is nice.

This is located in Parc des Bastions, it is nice for a stroll and there is few monuments located in the park with the Reformation Wall being the most significant.

The reformation wall was included in a guided walk we had from the tourist information centre, to the old town of Geneva. The guide was excellent and related some interesting facts about the varied history of Geneva. Buy a Geneva Pass from Tourist information, and this guided walk and lots of other activities, including public transport, are included in the... More

This is a fascinating monument to the Protestant Reformation, with massive statues of Farel, Calvin, Beza, and Knox at its center. The monument provides an engaging survey of the Reformation from the early 16th century until the early 17th. All of the inscriptions are in French ... but I am sure that there are guidebooks available that would provide translations.... More
