December in Geneva

GENEVA UNITES
Tell me how the fireworks project their reflections onto the water of Lake Geneva, and about the festive atmosphere of New Year. The colours that light up the sky represent the promise of wonderful times to come.

GENEVA SIZZLES
Tell me about the year 1602, the great bonfire and the biggest tradition in Geneva. The story takes us to the heart of the Canton's history, where we see a saucepan of chocolate and the soup cooked by Mère Royaume (Mother Royaume), as well as a procession bursting with period dress.

GENEVA GALLOPS
Tell me about the sound of hooves driving forward and the elegance of one of the most prestigious horseracing competitions in the world.

GENEVA SWIMS
Tell me how the swimmers shiver when they dare to enter the cold December water of Lake Geneva! 2,500 brave residents take on a distance of 120 m along the promenade of the Jardin Anglais (English Garden) for the oldest public race in the Canton.

GENEVA RESONATES
Tell me about the music that rings out from the heart of the cathedral, like an ode to warmth in the cool December weather. When the organ awakes in the Old Town, Geneva celebrates.

GENEVA DREAMS
Tell me the most enchanting tales of my childhood... the ones that never fail to transport me to the land of dreams and take me away to the magic of Christmas.

GENEVA SHINES
Tell me how the fireworks project their reflections onto the water of Lake Geneva, and about the festive atmosphere of New Year. The colours that light up the sky represent the promise of wonderful times to come.
