About
The Museum of the Swiss Abroad tell the story of Switzerland... From William Tell into the future... Through all Swiss Expads who got famous or less famouslike Louis Chevrolet, Antoine-Henri Jomini, Jacques Necker...The Museum of the Swiss Abroad at the Domain of Penthes near Geneva tells the story of those Swiss who ventured into the wider world, sometimes returning to the motherland and sometimes settling forever in their new homelands. From the Swiss of the Vatican to those linked to the King Fance, it is the "Swiss Made" notion or theme that the museum explores via the destinies of famous and less well-known figures alike, including Albert Gallatin, Minister of the Treasury to the United States, Louis Chevrolet, inventor of the automobile of the same name and the author Germaine de Stael.

A Promenade
Oct 2020 • Couples
Curious little museum on a beautiful hill overlooking Lake Geneva. Gives a perspective on the Swiss diaspora — from Pontifical guards to Latin American settlers. Enjoy it on a fall afternoon — the park is lovely then.

Terrible English translation
Oct 2019 • Couples
This museum was boring, not worth your time if you're a tourist. The English guide is a terrible translation, it doesn't even make sense! And it's organized by room name, however the rooms are not named, do it's impossible to tell where you are.

14th Century estate
Jun 2018
This estate now serves as meeting rooms for the nearby WHO, UN and US mission headquarters. Rolling hills and lush gardens make for a great morning walk. Beyond the chateau there is the view of Lac Leman (Lake Geneve) and the Montblanc. Food was good during our meeting.

Possibly the worst restaurant in Geneva - or even Switzerland
Oct 2017 • Business
The waiters are surly, even rude, the prices are ridiculous and the food shamefully bad. Little more to say. 52 francs for a business lunch, 20 francs for a "veggie burger", which consisted of some overcooked red cabbage topped off with a slice of potato and accompanied by a strange purée of peas and vinaigrette (I think). We asked for bread and got none. 2 francs per person for tap water.

The one star is for the beautiful property surrounding the restaurant, including a view of the lake.

Relaxing in the country
May 2017 • Solo
This chateau is situated just along the road from the US Embassy and makes a good walk to the botanical gardens, if walking back to Lake Geneva/the main centre city. The large grounds are a haven for bird, insects and animals, with buzzards/kites circling overhead.

This is truly a pretty place. I went there in January for a reception and loved the quiet atmosphere. Would like to go again in the summer! Lovely view towards the park and lake.

Love it

Very pretty Castle located in a beautiful domaine with the view to the lake. You can clearly see Mont Blanc during sunny days. The domaine can be used for events: conferences, weddings, etc. There is a good restaurant nearby. Place is popular with locals: lots of joggers and promeneurs.
