I had no preconceived ideas about what this visit would entail. I joined a guided tour (available in different languages) and found there to be a lot of information about the premises, the role of the UN and how it operates worldwide. It was very interesting and I would say would appeal to anyone but not so much for children.

Attended a conference as an observer - would like to visit more of the site. Been told to try the Library overlooking the lake.

I was in UN Palais des Nations due to my professional appointment. But the site is accessible for any visitor (just be patient when applying for the access badge). The Palais provides a unique atmosphere of the place where the world politics were woven for many decades (not always successfully); but - despite of any hesitations - you will probably admit that the money devoted for UN actions are well invested due to the feeling that some institution tries to establish better fate for many aspects of the international life, combat with poverty and againts oppresion, etc.

If you're in Geneva, you surely have to see the birthplace of the UN.

The tour was informative, engaging and interesting, the guide clearly knew his stuff. At a fraction under 1hr, it was long enough to see the main rooms and artwork etc, and to get a feel of the place, but not too long to be boring.

Our only issue was that we turned up before 14:00 (for the 14:30 tour), queued for over 45 minutes to clear security, and missed the tour, which meant a wait til 4pm for the next one- thoroughly disrupting our plans for the afternoon.

Very interesting tour, beutiful pieces of art, highly interesting architecture, symbolism in meetings rooms. Should be a must for everybody coming to Geneva, it really brings the UN world and issues close to those who are not politically very involved or internationally educated.
