Why visit Geneva?

Inspire your young scientists

Your school trip to Geneva could offer your students the unforgettable opportunity to visit the European nuclear physics laboratory at CERN!

Here, they’ll find out how European countries are working together to discover the secrets of the universe. You may even inspire the scientists of the future with a visit here, as your students will see how exciting a career in science can be.

You’ll enjoy a tour of the facility and will find out more about the world-famous Large Hadron Collider and how it can help us to better understand what the universe is made of.

As well as a visit to CERN, your students can also enjoy a visit to the History of Science Museum, which has an incredible collection of about 800 rare scientific instruments from the 17th to 19th centuries. A visit here will demonstrate to your students how scientific thinking has evolved over the centuries and how technology has developed to help scientists continue to change our perception of the world with their discoveries.

Explore the world capital of peace

Geneva is home to more international organisations than any other city in the world and is well known as a centre of diplomacy. It has even been called the world capital of peace for its role in the signing of the Geneva Conventions.

The headquarters of many agencies of the United Nations are located in the city. We can arrange for your group to visit the United Nations Office at Geneva (UNOG), where your students will find out about the work of the UN and its impact. They’ll also explore the Palais des Nations and the UN Museum.

We can also arrange for your group to visit the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Museum, where they’ll learn more about the origins of the organisation and the humanitarian work it carries out around the world.

Experience a truly international city

When you think Switzerland, you might think winter and skiing. But it’s also a fantastic destination to visit during the rest of the year. Geneva is a global financial centre and home to many international organisations, so the atmosphere here is very cosmopolitan.

The official language is French, so if you do have any students studying French, this is a great opportunity for them to practise their language skills. However, English is widely spoken, and, in fact, you shouldn’t be surprised to hear a fantastic mix of languages being spoken around you as you explore Geneva.

Geneva itself is a very wealthy city, with many jewellers, department stores and boutiques of all kinds. The city sits on the shimmering Lake Geneva, which is shared between France and Switzerland, and boasts spectacular views across to Mont Blanc despite it being over 80km away from Geneva. Your students certainly won’t forget their incredible school trip to Geneva!
