When my husband and I found out that the longest bench in the world is situated in Geneva, we had to visit while on holiday here in December. It's pretty centrally located, a short walk from the Saint-Pierre Cathedral and Maison Tavel and in a...More

A nice place to view the city from. Kind of a steep hill to climb before you get to the benches, but at least there's a bench to rest on at the top. Sandboxes and play equipment for kids. The longest wooden bench in the...More
