i am also intersted to visit the mosque and find indian currys restruants ,would like to go for a boat ride in geneva lake, how much will it cost?

Re: places of interst in and around City centre

by qaminari

I think there are several mosques in Geneva, the oldest is in the Eaux-Vives area (http://www.sacred-destinations.com/switzerland/geneva-centre-islamique.htm) and the biggest in the Petit Saconnex area (http://www.mosque.ch/index.php/en_US/home) which you can reach by bus 3 from near Cornavin station, direction Gardiol.
As for curry, the Nirvana at 21 rue du Rhône is good and also the Royal India at 18 rue des Paquis.
Regarding boat trips, it depends what you want, see http://www.cgn.ch/eng: but if you want to do the whole lake you can get a day card for something like €35 (or rather, equivalent in Swiss Francs).

Patek Philippe Museum

by eranda

Less than a century and a half ago, in this neighbourhood which is today both brilliant and energetic, the streets perpendicular to the Avenue du Mail were but local paths. Following the Exposition Nationale of 1896, numerous buildings were erected, entirely modifying the area within just 20 years.
The structure which today houses the Patek Philippe Museum has a long and interesting history dedicated to watchmaking and its related crafts. Most probably designed by the talented architect Mr William Henssler in 1919, it has witnessed gem-cutting under the name Heller & Son, the manufacture of jewellery by the firms Ponti Gennari and Piaget, and the manufacture of watch-cases and bracelets since 1975 by Les Ateliers Reunis for Patek Philippe.
The Patek Philippe Museum traces the evolution of watch making in Geneva from its humble origins through to its current apogee as the world leader in the industry. The museum presents an evocative collection of timepieces dating back as far as the early 16th century, demonstrating the artistic and engineering prowess of Geneva’s past and present masters. Modern masterpieces from Patek Philippe’s latest collections are also on display as well as music boxes, pistols and other historic bibelots spread over the museum’s four floors.

Camino de Santiago...Route of St James

by gordonilla

I was a little surprised when I discovered that Geneva was on at least one branch of the Route of St James, which ultimately arrives in Santiago de Compestela. Keep an eye out for the route signs; and if you really want to, carry on walking to Galicia.

Salon de l'Auto (Motor Show)

Each spring around March, the Geneva Motor Show continues its long standing tradition of showing an abundance of concept cars to the industry, the press and the public.

Revival

by thesaint about Griffin's Club Lounge

Griffin's is the second oldest club in Geneva after the Club Fifty-Eight. Very famous with the stars in the 1980s, it has faded into near oblivion until a recent revival, thanks to new partners.
It is now again a trendy place in Geneva, where the young meets the older, a rare feat in a city where clubs are often limited to very young people. Dress very well. Security is though but nice.
