Things to do for free in Geneva
Geneva may not be the cheapest of cities but with great deals on flights to Geneva through BudgetAir and an idea of what to do that does not cost a cent, you could be onto a winner. First up, if you do not mind getting wet, dash under the Jet d’Eau on the southern bank of Lake Geneva. Its 140m high spurt of water contains seven tonnes of water at any one time and is a wonderful sight to see.
For a plethora of preserved, stuffed animals, visit the Natural History Museum, or if you are a science buff, enjoy a free three hour tour of the European Organisation for Nuclear Research, better known as CERN. The tour needs to be booked at least a month in advance and you will have to show some form of ID when you get there.
Walking through the parks that border the lake is a very pleasant way to spend an afternoon. Jardin Botanique is full of peacocks and the views of Mount Blanc on a clear day are stunning.
