A Phased-Out Re-opening

The phased out reopening begins with phase three on 8 June where swimming pools, theatres, cinemas, zoos, botanical gardens, animal parks and mountain transport services will be open to the public again.

Every year Geneva welcomes the highest numbers of travellers from the GCC compared to other Swiss cities. This is linked to Geneva’s diverse offerings, natural scene and unique shopping opportunities which Arab travellers look forward to. The number of halal food restaurants and the hotels with Arabic speaking staff makes travellers from the Middle East region feel at home when visiting Geneva.
