Place du Général Guisan

Place du Général Guisan

An unusual union between a head of the armed forces and a delicate rose garden. Rest assured that there is nothing warlike about this spot - quite the contrary. In fact, it offers a welcome opportunity to beat a retreat if the pace of life on the quays is too frenetic.

They are only 50 metres away, and yet the ambiance could not be more different. Whenever it gets too crowded down by the lake, a taste of peace and quiet is just across the road in this recently redeveloped square.
