Fountain
10:00-22:30 (Local time)
The Grand Fountain is located on the Lake Geneva near the English Garden and is one of the more representative landscapes in Geneva. The large fountain is like a water jet from a whale, and its spectacular sight can be seen far from the city center. The big fountain will have a rainbow in the sunny daylight, and there will be a chance to see the big fountain under the illumination at night. It is also very magnificent.
Broken Chair

Broken Chair

4.5/570 Reviews
Statue/Sculpture
Open all day (Local time)
The Wooden Chair with a Broken Leg, located in the square in front of the Palais des Nations is a sculpture by the Geneva artist Daniel Besett. It was established in 1997 when the International Disabled Persons' Federation appealed to people to pay attention to the harm caused to civilians by landmines in war. Although this sculpture is only an "attraction" for seeing, it has a very special significance. There is no written description around the sculpture, but the broken leg undoubtedly symbolizes the human body which has suffered a loss by the landmine explosion, leaving people with thoughts about war and peace.
