Victoria Hall

Victoria Hall, built at the end of the 19th Century in honor of the English queen, is a magnificent concert hall that is both luxurious and acoustically brilliant. Built for classical concerts, the hall is the venue of choice for city-based as well as visiting orchestra groups across the country. The ornate decorative elements and regal ambiance of the hall enhance the performances hosted here. A wide range of cultural events are conducted here throughout the year, which you can't afford to miss. Visit the website for details about upcoming performances.

St. Pierre Cathedral

Having aged gracefully over more than 850 years, this magnificent cathedral lies nestled in Geneva's Old Town. Its interiors set alight by chandeliers, this cathedral boasts ornate chapels like the Chapel of Maccabee adorned with Gothic frescoes, and side aisles bearing tomb stones of various luminaries of the church. In addition, its majestic capitals draw influences from the Romanesque and Gothic styles of architecture, and are some of the largest in the whole of Switzerland. Not only is this cathedral a solemn dedication to Saint Pierre, but it is also a stirring emblem of Roman Protestantism. A steep climb through a labyrinthine spiral staircase leads to two imposing towers which serve as an outstanding vantage point over the shimmering blue Geneva Lake, charming brown-roofed buildings and the iconic Jet d'Eau. North of this grand structure lies the extensive International Museum of Reformation, which is a stirring insight into theology, and what life looked like after reformation.

Place du Bourg-de-Four

Located at the intersection of rue Verdaine, rue des Chaudronniers, and rue Étienne-Dumont is the Place du Bourg-de-Four, a bustling town square in Geneva's Old Town. This place draws its historic significance from the historic buildings that surround it; though bearing picturesque, pastel-hued facades with flower-laden windows, at one time these buildings were originally raised to shelter European refugees from across Europe. The square is within close proximity to noteworthy attractions like the Palais de Justice and St. Pierre Cathedral, the largest church in the city. Surrounding the Place du Bourg-de-Four are gelateria, cafés, book stores, art galleries, bars, and bistros which promise a buoyant and enjoyable atmosphere through the day. Once the site of a significant cattle market, the square also offers high-end shopping to today's visitors.

Musée d’Art Moderne et Contemporain (Mamco)

Housed inside Bâtiment d'art Contemporain- which was previously a factory, Musée d’Art Moderne et Contemporain is a state-of-the-art facility for showcasing contemporary artworks. It was established in 1994 and is spread across 4000 square meters (43056 square feet) which enables it to showcase more than 3000 artworks at a time. Out of these, the museum permanently hosts 1300, whereas, the rest are temporary exhibits of works by national and international artists. Some of the classic collections of the museum include the Black mirror space by French artist Bernar Venet, drawings and projects of Corridor Store Front by Christo and collection of more than sixteen thousand cubes of different sizes and colors made by Robert Filliou. Call for more information.

Théâtre Forum Meyrin

This contemporary theater is located in the middle of Meyrin surrounded by the Ecumenical Center, the town hall, and a mall. The auditorium holds up 700 seats and also has a large stage for the performers. There is also a bar that serves drinks and snacks, as well as galleries that present different art expos. Films and workshops are also another feature of this theater. Théâtre Forum Meyrin is not just an exciting performing arts venue, but is also popular for hosting business meetings, socializing, and gatherings.

Grand Théâtre de Genève

Situated on the Boulevard du Théâtre, this grand opera house ardently celebrates the glory of opera, dance, recitals, and occasional theater. Built in 1879, it replaced the Théâtre de Neuve, which had become unable to accommodate the city's growing patronage. Although the original structure suffered damage in a fire the following century, the tenacious opera house was refurbished and reopened to an eager public in 1962. Home to state-of-the-art acoustics, the Grand Théâtre de Genève, with its repertoire of ballet, classical symphonies and choral performances, harks back to the legacy of maestros like Beethoven, Mozart, Rossini, and Meyerbeer. Perhaps the most striking feature of this opera house is its grand foyer, a canvas of elegance, set alight by luminescent chandeliers, gilded panels, and vibrant ceiling frescoes. Just minutes from downtown, and opposite the Parc des Bastions, this central attraction boasts both a historic facade and tempting events schedule.
