The Palais des Nations
Symbol of Geneva, capital of peace.
An air of peace and the winds of freedom.
Built between 1929 and 1936 and located at the heart of the Parc de l'Ariana, the Palais des Nations houses the European headquarters of the United Nations, and is the largest UN centre after New York. More than 25,000 delegates pass through the centre each year, and many works of art are on display there. Furthermore, the Palais opens its doors daily and provides fascinating guided tours!
