"Every year, at the end of July..." Geneva Tourist Trap Tip by iavormar

Geneva Tourist Traps: 8 reviews and 9 photos


Every year, at the end of July and till the beginning of August, Geneva transforms into an immense popular festival where all kinds of people and nationalities meet.

The Geneva Festival was created in 1947 and has become famous in the whole world and is an opportunity to amuse oneself happily and cheerfully. The Festival takes place around the lake but also within different districts in Geneva, in order to satisfy fans of funfairs, techno music, carnival, rave, popular balls, folklore, humorists, cabaret singers, classical music, fashion, gastronomy etc.

Among the highlights of the Festival are certainly the musical fireworks, a fantastic moment which enlightens the roadstead and at which the world’s most famous firework manufacturers are present.
