“The Quartier des Bains, it's an art of living! This vibrant and multicultural district of Geneva is home to a number of art galleries and exhibitions. From MAMCO to the Centre d'Art Contemporain, through the numerous galleries and their quality exhibitions, the Quartier des Bains has become the European platform for modern art. The bistros and trendy bars contribute to the night-time buzz! Not to be missed: the event “Vernissages Communs”, an art exhibition organised three times a year that allows you to discover works from all over the world.”

Ski Area
“There is nothing like Aiguille du Midi. Magnificent, steep rocky tower reaching over 3800m, that anywhere else would be an elusive climbing goal, but in Chamonix you can get there with a cable car. Already the station is quite impressive, with the 360 degrees panorama, glass box over the cliff and the famous bridge. Now the views all around the valley, including iconic Mont Blanc are just breath taking. It's also where many climbers and skiers start their extreme trips. NOTE: It gets really cold up there and it is worth checking the web cameras to make sure that the upper station is not in the clouds. Reservations are possible to avoid the queues in high season.”

Denkmal/Wahrzeichen
“Reaching 140 metres in height, the Jet d'Eau has over time become a real emblem of Geneva. The beautiful tale of the famous Jet d'Eau of Geneva is almost the result of coincidence. In 1886, the hydraulic plant which distributed the driving force of the Rhône to the craftsmen and watchmakers of Geneva was obligated to create an open evacuation of the water in overpressure, when the workshops closed at night. The place sparked such enthusiasm and excitement that the Jet d'Eau was born.”

Natural Feature
“As you step away from the Annecy Old Town and you stroll along the main canal, the pathway will take you towards the Lac d Annecy (Lake Annecy). This is the third largest lake in France, so bring your camera, because the view is quite impressive! There are plenty of activities to choose from. You can hire a motor boat, or you can choose to get on a pedal boat and take your time relaxing whilst sunbathing in the French sunshine. Alternatively, you can choose to spend some time in the beautiful Jardins de l’Europe (Gardens of Europe). Where else you can relax at the 18th century gardens with a view over a beautiful lake and the spectacular backdrop of the mountain range. It is stunning! These days, the gardens feature a much smaller number of original plants; thus allowing for a clearer view of the lake. Win-win situation here. If you are travelling to Annecy with kids, then this will be a great place for you to stretch your legs too. The park has an extensive grassy area for kids to loose some energy and there is also a kids play park with a bunch of slides, swings and other funky toys to play with.”

Kirche
“A small historical jewel with medieval charm! The largest historic city in Switzerland, the old town is dominated by St. Peter's Cathedral, the centre of the Reformation. Climb the 157 steps to the top of the tower for a unique panorama of the city. Believe us, the panoramic view is well worth the effort! Then lose yourself in the surrounding narrow streets full of charm. Each of them is home to one of the many treasures of Geneva's history. Here’s a little secret: many secret passageways link up the streets of the old city, don’t hesitate to find them and follow them! ”
