School Trips to Geneva lend themselves to a rich experience of education thanks to the world-class museums and the fact that it is a financial mecca, with dozens of international organisations which form the basis of serious monetary trading. These world famous institutions include CERN, the Red Cross and the United Nations, making it a unique and fascinating destination for those interested in a business, finance or historical educational tour.
There are many reasons to take an educational trip to Geneva, however the Cathedrale Saint-Pierre is one of its main attractions. It has no less than one hundred and fifty seven steps which lead to the summit of the cathedral’s north tower, and to a fabulous panorama overlooking the city and the lake. You will also be charmed by the Clémence, the queen of the bells, weighing over 6 tons and hoisted to this very tower in 1407.
It is impossible to describe Geneva without making reference to the world-renowned Geneva watch industry, which is a real symbol of this city. The famous flower clock represents this perfectly as it is a true masterpiece of technology and floral art. Built in 1955, it is located at the edge of the Jardin Anglais and offers a delightful sight.
Originally a simple security valve at the Coulouvrenière hydraulic factory, the massive Jet d'Eau fountain has grown to become symbolic of Geneva. In the summer months, eight 13,500-watt projectors light the fountain's majestic column in the evening, as it soars into the sky.
