  • Overview

    For various reasons – its famed neutrality, its location in the centre of Europe – Geneva is the seat of many international organisations.   The outstanding International Red Cross Museum is unmissable for its moving and sometimes shocking permanent exhibition which charts the vital humanitarian work carried out by the organisation for the past 150 years. Combine this with a guided tour of the Palais des Nations, the European seat of the United Nations, to offer your students an insight into how the biggest issues facing the world today are tackled. 

    Take a sightseeing boat cruise around Lake Geneva to view it’s most recognisable landmark the jet d’eau or sample a Swiss institution; the Fondue will provide your students with a great trip that both inspires them and showcases this stunning and cosmopolitan city.

     

  • Reasons to Visit
