Finding a cathedral built upon the highest point in town would ordinarily be a simple task but not so with this cathedral. Moreover, the reformation stripped it of most of its ornamentation. It has a notable organ so coordinating your visit with a concert could...More

Someone was playing the organ and they messed a few times so it was an interesting visit for us. We still tried not to laugh and enjoy the place, which was beautiful. The outside columns are grandiose

Somehow different church than the ones I'm used visiting. It's a modern hotel with a roof access to see the city from above. Don't miss the roof ;)

The cathedral is in the old town and is a typical cathedral, with stained glass windows. The 15th century carved wooden choir stalls are interesting to see, with carved heads, animals etc, You can visit the towers for 5CHF to get views of the city-...More

We visited the cathedral as we lodged 100mts from it. Very empty and I get the feeling that all Catholic luster was stripped of it with the Reform. Goes to show what religious change brings.

When you get to the top through the small halls, Geneva only appears in front of you. You are constantly expecting what you will see when you pass all dark rooms and halls, a than you can feel like time has been stopped and simply...More

It is nice in it's own way, but after seeing the biggets, tallest most beutiful in Europe, not that impressive. It is a traditional gothic structure in a nice part of town.

My son lives in Zurich and he took me and his father here for a view of the city. It was so beautiful. If you are afraid of heights it may be a little scary but it is well worth the view.

Such a pretty cathedral to go and visit, we climbed to the top of the tower for only chf5, which is the cheapest thing to do in Geneva!! Well worth the view. Lots of stairs up, but do go!

Hi, kanjer2015. What would you like to know about this attraction? When I looked at the Cathedral website it was all in French (sorry do not speak French)and I could not find or try to decipher the opening times anywhere. Can anyone please help as we would really like to visit it. From from I could see the Secretariat was only open during the week - is the cathedral not open at weekends? Surely it must be open on sundays?
