Mara des bois

The "Mara des bois" strawberry is a speciality cultivated by fruit and vegetable growers in Geneva, who harvest 100 tonnes of them a year. The unusual, particularly tasty flavour of the "Mara des bois" is reminiscent of wild strawberries. Thanks to its deep red colour, its soft, juicy flesh and exquisite flavour, it has become the favourite strawberry of people in the Geneva area. Available from supermarkets and markets, from May right through to the autumn.

Place des Nations

Created between 1987 and 1991 by the painter Venturelli and recognised by UNESCO, these 7 windows provide a sermon on human rights and on the Christian message.

The impressive Place des Nations is Geneva’s contribution to world peace. At the heart of international Geneva, this agora provides a forum for global citizens to challenge public opinion and diplomats.

Favarger chocolate

This delicate, high-quality chocolate is a world-famous Geneva speciality. The company, founded in 1826, was initially located on the Pont de l’Ile (in order to use the waters of the Rhone to drive the machinery), but in 1875 it moved to Versoix. Specialities include "Avelines", "Nougalines de Genève" and chocolate fondue.

Old Town Geneva

Geneva's Old Town is one of the largest in Europe and catalogues the town's 2,000 years of history in its many art galleries, antique shops, museums, fountains and other sights.
