Explore Geneva's cobbled streets with Mandarin Oriental

HONG KONG, October 22, 2017

Mandarin Oriental, Geneva is offering an enchanting cultural experience for history enthusiasts wanting to discover the secrets of the Capital of Peace.

Guests booking the Geneva Old Town Tour will have an opportunity to visit the International Red Cross Museum and enjoy other benefits, including luxurious accommodation at the hotel.

Guests can explore the cobbled streets of Geneva’s historic centre with a guide, who will share their extensive knowledge of the city and tell the story of how it became home to the United Nations headquarters. The city’s humanitarian traditions run deep, and guests will receive passes to visit a museum dedicated to the work of Henry Dunant, founder of the Red Cross and first recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize.

Home to more than 200 international organisations, Geneva is infused with the spirit of peace. Guests will find this powerfully expressed at the foot of Broken Chair, a monumental sculpture in front of the Palais des Nations.

Other forms of tranquillity to be found in Geneva are cruises round Lake Geneva or strolling along the water’s edge while admiring uninterrupted views of snow-capped peaks. The city’s many parks and other green spaces are relaxing too. Home to the sixteenth century religious reformer, John Calvin, Geneva has world renowned watchmakers and chocolatiers.

The Geneva Old Town Tour package is available from CHF695 ($706) per night, and includes:

  • Luxurious accommodation in a Deluxe Room
  • Breakfast for two at Café Calla
  • A two-hour guided tour of the Old Town
