Perle du Lac and Botanical Garden

Overlooking the lake, a small panoramic viewpoint shows the idyllic scene where the poet Lamartine loved to stop and think. The park starts at rue de Lausanne and visitors are immediately greeted by a monumental fountain with two layers. There is also a garden full of dahlias that flower in the autumn. At the end of the park, there is a little door allowing visitors to disembark the "mouettes genevoises", the boats linking the two sides of the lake.

Parc de La Grange

A remarkable landscaped garden measuring 12,000 square metres, with one rosebush per sqaure metre! Created in 1945/46, this rose garden displays more than 200 different varieties in exceptional architectural harmony: the flowerbeds are in terrace form between large stairways of natural rock, enhanced by pools and pergolas.

Place du Bourg-de-Four

On the hit-parade of the charms of Geneva, this square in the heart of the old town is ideal for lounging and soaking up the calm, serene and pleasant atmosphere. It is not unusual to see locals meeting around the beautiful 18th century fountain surrounded by flowers, or on the terrace of a picturesque bistro, La Clémence for example.

Brunswick Monument

A mausoleum, built by the people of Geneva in 1879 after a considerable sum of money was bequeathed to them by Duke Charles II of Brunswick. It is an exact reproduction of the 14th century Scaglieri family tomb in Verona, Italy.

Listed as a historic building, the Brunswick Monument is surprising in its architecture and history. This neo-Gothic-style mausoleum is a historical replica of the Scaligeri family tomb in Verona dating from the fourteenth century and built at the request of the Duke of Brunswick.
