More than the history and politics

Make sure to spend time roaming the grounds. They feature a great selection of grand trees from around the world with outdoor sculptures to complement.

My spouse and I signed on to an optional tour of Geneva during a Grand Tour of Switzerland. We were particularly excited to read in our travel documents, "join an optional excursion to charming Geneva with its cobblestoned Old Town and the Palais des Nations..." We assumed that a visit to UNOG was included. Standing on the corner in front... More

The admittance to the site is not free and it is not included in the Geneva Pass if you have it. However it is totally worth it. The tours are only available with a guide and are dispensed in english and other langages. The tours have precise starting hours in the morning and it is not possible to reserve your... More

This is one of the attractions in Geneva. It is located just opposite the 'Broken Chair'. Gorgeous modern building with many flags outside.

We arrived a little before 10 with a school group in front of us. The security screening takes time. We just made the tour time of 10:30. Very informative and impressive to be able to be in the assembly hall. There is a fee for the tour.

This is a very interesting tour and a must see if you visit Geneva but it's not easy to get in. First we were unable to purchase tickets in advance, then when we showed up early to get in line, they sent us away. After standing in line, we watched the hundreds of père-booked groups pass by us, before being... More

Really fascinating to see the Palais des Nations. You're in a large group and as there are only a few slot times, and because you need to go through security etc, I'd recommend getting there half an hour earlier to make sure you get a space! If you are interested in these things would definitely recommend this tour.

Was there for business but lots of people go there for tours which look well organized - you may have a peak in some of the big meeting rooms Don't forget to visit the gift store
