Enjoy the views.
After walking around the city for hours, you deserve a break, and what can be better than sitting on an endless, green-coloured bench. Located at the Parc des Bastions, on the top part of the Reformation Wall, this original bench is, with its 126 metres of length, the longest in the world, and it is shared by many people who come here to have a snack or just to sit for a while. And there, under the leafy chestnut trees, you can let your mind drift in this quiet environment, admire the distant and often snowy mountains and gaze over the magnificent city skyline. In the same park at the Rampe de la Treille, you'll find the "official chestnut tree" (le marronier officiel). This historical tree is an important feature of identity in the city, because the appearance of its first flowers, called "l'éclosion", signal the start of the spring in Geneva, with a famous image that is shown in every form of local media.
