The castle dominating the centre of the park was built around the year 1750 and has now become a restaurant of high repute. It is surrounded by shrubbery of all kinds: alpine and perennial plants, bulbous flowers and azaleas.

Big park (which is actually two parks side by side) just in front of the lake. Great for everything from naping, jogging, leisurely walk, eating and everything else.
Very quiet and relaxing nice parc where you can go to the Hotel Parc des Eaux vives and order a pick nick basket.
One of the biggest parks in town. Right near the lake, with wonderful sights and many secret spots. Very relaxing for walking or jogging.
This huge park is ideal for spending a sunny afternoon whereas you want to take your dog out or just enjoy your time with friends or family.

“The amazing landmark that makes Geneva special, has got to be the 140m high jet d'eau (water fountain). Extrait from Know-it-all passport®: In 1886, a company located at the end of the lake used to pump and distribute water under pressure for craftsmen’s machines. Since there was little need in the evening, they let the pressure escape through a small hole on one extremity at La Coulouvrenière, resulting in a water fountain of a few meters. In 1891, the City of Geneva decided to install the Jet d’Eau where it is today, on the Rade, to celebrate Switzerland’s 600th anniversary. To project half a cubic meter of water per second up to 140 meters high requires two powerful groups of motor pumps, representing a global weight of over 16 tons and a total power of close to 1,000 kilowatts, fed by an electric tension of 2,400 volts. The water is drawn in a circular water-pump and is directed towards an exit pipe where the speed reaches 200 km/h (130 miles per hour).”

“The Museum of Art and History is the city's largest and one of its most important institutions. The museum is housed within a building designed by Marc Camoletti and constructed from 1903 to 1910; the building's exhibition space covers four floors and 7,000m². the building itself is a treasure with an inner courtyard, and a façade featuring sculptures by Paul Amlehn and a triangular gable with an allegorical depiction of the arts. In a frieze on the upper section of the façade, there are the names of Genevan artists. The collections are divided into thematic categories focusing on Applied Arts, Fine Art, and archaeology. There is an art section in the museum with paintings from the middle ages to the 20th century including works by Konrad Witz, Rembrandt, Modigliani, and Rodin. An Applied Arts section has Byzantine art, medieval weapons, silverware and historic musical instruments among the collection. Part of the museum has been turned into the 17th century interior of the Lower Castle Zizers complete with wood paneling and furniture.
