Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

It very good and interesting to visit, it gives a brief history with timelines etc of what took place.

Wall is located with the park that is also great to see with other monuments to see.

I would certainly put this on the list of things to see in Geneva.

Great place to relax. Wall is impressive. While we were there the Christmas market was on adjacent to it with a variety of food being sold in small shacks. There were many little bon fires around to keep warm as well.

There is a lot of history behind the reformation wall It is built into the old city walls of Geneva, and the monument's location there is designed to represent the fortifications', and therefore the city of Geneva's, integral importance to the Reformation. It is in the Parc De Bastions so you can kill 2 birds with one stone here.

As far as memorials go, this is a really nice one. So many memorials are short on information, but this one has a reasonable amount of historical information to make sense of its importance. It's also just a lovely, well maintained wall in a nice park.

This was a piece of history we hadn't heard about before. We recognized the names Calvin and Knox but not some of the other Reformers. Well worth visiting.

I did the walking tour to see all of the aspects of the Reformation attractions in Geneva. The Reformation wall was one of the furthest attractions from all the others (about a 7 min walk from St. Pierre Cathedral) but totally worth it. My pictures are just a section of the wall. It is quite impressive. All of these attractions along the “Walk the Reformation” path are well worth the effort. There is a lot to learn about Christian history through these attractions.

Beautifully maintained and nested in one of the most beautiful parks in Geneva, the Parc des Bastions, this is a must visit when in Geneva.

The Reformation wall is an important part of both Geneva's and Christianity's history, and well worth a visit even if just while enjoying strolling round attractive parts of Geneva. There are 4 main statues, each 5 metres high, of Calvin, Knox, Farel and Beza as well as 6 smaller (3 metre) statues of other Protestant luminaries including Prince William the First of Netherlands and Oliver Cromwell (England).

It is worth reading up a little history before visiting the Monument to get the best value out of it but it is also an attractive place as part of a walking tour of Geneva, while pondering the religious divisions that violently tore Europe apart in the 16th and 17th centuries.
