Geneva brings the world to one small city with a huge expat population and the highest number of international organizations in any one city.
Your inner history buff will appreciate Chateau de Chillon and Gruyeres Castle. Get a sense of the local culture at UNESCO-Altstadt von Bern and International Red Cross and Red Crescent Museum. Change things up with these side-trips from Geneva: Zahringerbrunnen (in Bern), HR Giger Museum (in Gruyeres) and The Olympic Museum Lausanne (Musee Olympique) (in Lausanne). There's much more to do: see the interesting displays at Patek Philippe Museum, shop like a local with MB&F M.A.D.Gallery, explore the activities along Lake Geneva, and take some stellar pictures from Cathedrale de St-Pierre.
