Wonderful building, beautiful paintings and sculptures, the visit is very well presented and explains process and history of the UN. A must if you are in Geneve.

Whatever you think about UNO, 1) the inside is to be visited (guided tours in En and Fr), 2) it will enlighten you. Gorgeous views of the lake, somptuous architecture and interior design. Elegant, serious and warm at the same time. Humbling.

A working headquarter of UN. Guided tour in different languages. Have your passport with you. The tour was slightly less than 2 hours and very well organised. Enjoyed it and highly recommend it.

Arrive early and plan to wait a bit. Worth the trip but you'll need some patience and flexibility. Cute gift shop. Nice grounds. Good photo ops.

Tours are scheduled during the day and come with your passport/identification. Where to get the tour is confusing--it isn't at the front gate but up the street to the left as you are facing the flags in front. Go up the street to another gate...More

It depends a bit on how many tourists turn up on the day, but in my experience it wasn't hard to get on one. 3 of us arrived around half an hour before the first tour and got in fine - it seemed to run more frequently than... More
