Don’t go to Geneva without visiting the United Nations. Yes you need to queue up early if you want to gain admittance but it’s worth the wait. A reduced entry fee is available for seniors and you’ll need your passport to prove your identity and...More

Live close to New York. Never saw the UN. A great visit in Geneva. Very high security. As it should be. Very knowledgeable guide. A must see if visiting the city. Great learning experience. The campus is in a beautiful garden setting.

Pay 12 CHF to enjoy a guided tour of the palais des nations. Daily tours (Monday to Friday) at 10:30,12:00, 14:30 and 16:00. You should be there ahead of time to pass the security line and get a visitor card. The tour is very informative,...More

We arrived early to beat the queues (they can be quite long!) and had to pass through quite strict security (as you would expect). It was well worth it to see a little bit of the organisation that impacts lives across the globe. Our German...More
