Weekend in Geneva

Geneva has long been one of our favorite cities to visit in Switzerland and for our most recent visit, we wanted to discover a side of the city that is unknown to most tourists. Thankfully, Geneva Tourism offers a plethora of tips on sites and attractions that are off the beaten path and sure to impress. Here is the itinerary we followed for our 2-day visit to Geneva.   

Mechanical Watchmaking Workshop

The first item on our agenda was to attend a mechanical watchmaking workshop at Initium. Located in the heart of Geneva’s Old Town, Initium offers workshops for individuals as well as groups. During the workshop we were immersed into the world of mechanical timepieces. The lesson was given by a master watchmaker who covered the theory and practice of mechanical movement. With a screwdriver and tweezers in hand, we experienced the thrill of seeing the beating hearts of our watches come to life.
