The Museum of Art and History is a family gem amongst museums in this city. Featuring a fabulous array of permanent and temporary exhibits, this place will blow your mind! The Egyptian collection is always a firm favourite and seems to impress kids.
Parc Trembley has a swimming pool for the summer months, ping pong tables, basket ball hoops, lots of trees to sit under on a warm day and one of the best views of Mont Blanc you will see. This playground is a fun filled space to spend time together to play, relax or just to be silly.
Espace Rousseau provides a wonderful opportunity to acquaint one with the not very well-known 18th Century philosopher, writer and composer, Jean-Jacques Rousseau. The museum is Rousseau’s birthplace, and provides multi-lingual audiovisual guides to better explain the exhibits. A real hidden gem.
Plaine de Plainpalais is the largest outdoor flea market in Geneva where locals go to hawk their old ‘junk’, be it paintings, CD’s, furniture, antiques or vintage clothing. It operates on Tuesdays, Fridays and Sunday from around 8am.
For eating out
If you are hanging for a pizza, then Luigia is a fun and family friendly place to go to. Although on the pricey side, the pizzas are exemplary and while you may have a small wait during busy periods – be patient! The food is worth it.
La Celmence is where all the hip students tend to hang out and is quite the local institution. For a casual, relaxed and laid back vibe with no hassles then this is the place to head to.
