School Trips to Geneva

Geneva is an idyllic city positioned on the edge of Lake Geneva it is littered with parks, promenades and wonderful mountain views. Compact and well organised the city is ideal for a short school trip packed with educational value.

Also known as the “city of peace”, Geneva has a prominent place in world events thanks to its central and versatile location; more than 20 international organisations have their headquarters here including the United Nations and the Red Cross.

Scientists will marvel at CERN where the Internet was born 20 years ago, and where 10,000 physicists try to unlock the secrets of the universe and the Big Bang. The History of Science Museum is the only one of its kind in Switzerland, includes collections composed of numerous old scientific instruments (microscopes, barometers, sundials, astrolabes, etc.), and books and documents bequeathed by the families of Geneva’s scientists and scholars.

A must for all for and a great way to sightsee is on board a Cruise on one of Europe’s most beautiful lakes allowing you to discover the major attractions of Lake Geneva; the stone of Niton, the Water Fountain, the Black Harbour, the Diodati house, The UN building, the castle of Bellerive, the Mermaid, and many more interesting sites. Cable Car rides in the mountains and a Fondue meal establish the Swiss connection that will leave your students enthralled with this cosmopolitan and stunning city.
