BY CAR

Driving into Geneva before 9.00 a.m. is very difficult due to dense highway traffic (commuters).

You may park your car in the parking lot in front of the Children’s Hospital (except in the emergency slots) the first and the last day of your stay as long as you renew your parking badge (at the reception).
