Meyrin Things to Do

    This church is located right next to the tram stop and actually I got off the tram just to take pictures of it. It was built in 1841 by architect Charles Schaeck-Jacquet in neogothic style. A huge renovation took place in 2013.

    It serves the roman catholic people of Meyrin.

    I’m not sure if there’s something for the average tourist at Meyrin, the truth is I didn’t care that much as I got off the tram just to take pictures of the main church (Saint Julien) but then I just walked around a bit, took some croissants from the bakery and crossed the main road only to see another church and a playground.
    It was early January and although not extremely cold it was just before sunset so I started to feel uncomfortable wearing only a tshirt :) It was time to get on the next tram...

    Attention: Due to the times of year attraction is available only in Late spring/summer/early autumn!!!

    Besides the jokes, you can admire the fantastic fields on the fringe of Meyrin (closer to the road that links Geneva, the canton's capital, with France) and they really provide a pleasant walking surroundings... It's a pity, though, that these splendid sunflower fields do not provide much cooling, because the summers are hot. Or at least they were normally hot when I was in Meyrin.

    It looks just like those priceless Van Gogh paintings!

    From Geneva you can take tram #18 (towards Cern).
