Capital of Peace

Start off your visit on the 10th (Fri): ponder the design of The Geneva Water Fountain and then see the interesting displays at Patek Philippe Museum.

London, UK to Geneva is an approximately 5-hour flight. You can also take a train; or do a combination of car and train. You'll lose 1 hour traveling from London to Geneva due to the time zone difference. When traveling from London in August, plan for somewhat warmer days and about the same nights in Geneva: temperatures range from 30°C by day to 16°C at night. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 11th (Sat) so you can go by car to Interlaken.
