Geneva and its surroundings ( Lausanne etc) are famous for historic peace conferences. I was at UNOG for the first time and as a speaker here, but the experience was nice and I would like to take my family and child as visitors as well.

The guided tour of the UN building gives an insight into important rooms, interesting art, the organisation's general history and its work today. The student ticket was 10 Swiss francs which was worth it for a pretty unique experience! Our guide was very pleasant and...More

Hello! The UN website makes it sound as though it is very difficult to get into the tours. Has anyone had this issue? We are a party of two so we cannot reserve a spot ahead of time, according to the website. Just wondering how likely it will be that we will actually get to join a tour if we just "show up". Also, if a tour is full, are there areas of the building that you can access on your own? Thanks in advance for your tips!
