It’s also an opportunity to taste the famous chocolate pot, emblematic of the region and a favourite of young and old alike.
✨ Geneva Lux Festival
To start the year on the right foot, Geneva will show off its wonderful light animations in January 2022. Visitors will be able to admire 21 illuminated works throughout the city. In the city centre, but also in the various districts, such as Pâquis, Eaux-Vives or Plainpalais, artists from all over the world have combined their talent to surprise you and transform the streets of Geneva. Among this year’s novelties, you’ll be able to discover the whale and its calf by the CUBE HTX collective, swimming in the safe haven of Ile Rousseau.
