What to see

St Peter's Cathedral and the Flower Clock

The centre of the Reformation movement and the biggest church in Switzerland, St Peter's Cathedral proudly overlooks the city. You'll need some comfy shoes to climb the stairs to the top - there are 157 of them.

After checking out the view from the cathedral, take some snaps in front of the totally unique, nearby Flower Clock. It's the biggest flower clock in the world and 6,500 flowers make up the dial alone.
 


Jet d'Eau

The 140-metre water fountain down on the lake is the city's star attraction. The perfect spot to see it is on the Bains des Paquis - a remarkable 'beach' where the locals swim and relax in the saunas. Take a boat cruise out on the lake for another excellent vantage point.

Tip: After enjoying the fountain, relax and have a picnic in the nearby Eaux-Vives Park.
