Palace of United Nations (Palais des Nations Unis)

The Palais des Nations Unis - or Palace of United Nations - is a monumental structure worthy of the European home of the United Nations, the international organization’s most important seat outside of New York. The neo-classical complex was originally built in the early 1930s as the headquarters of the League of Nations, the predecessor to the UN. These days it hosts major global conferences as well as numerous smaller meetings at which diplomats work at the coalface of day-to-day international relations.

Highlights of the guided tour include the enormous Assembly Hall, the Council Chamber and an exhibit of official gifts. A short film detailing the work of the UN puts it all in context. There is no charge to enter the surrounding Ariana Park. Here peacocks roam freely and the landscaped gardens offer splendid views of the lake and nearby Alps.

Practical Info

Take tram numbers 13 or 15, destination “Nations”. Enter at the Portail de Pregny (Pregny Gate) and remember to bring your passport. The Palais des Nations Unis can only be visited on a guided tour, which takes approximately one hour.
