Cologny is a lovely village a few minutes away from Geneva, where culture and history intertwine within remarkable panoramas. The Pré-Byron standpoint, next to the villa where Mary Shelley wrote the famous Frankenstein novel, for instance, offers one of the most beautiful views on the bay of Geneva. Besides, at a stone’s throw from the Auberge du Lion d’Or restaurant, culture lovers may visit the Martin Bodmer Foundation, listed as UNESCO World Heritage. Its permanent collection includes many originals: papyrus, medieval manuscripts, authors autographs, incunabula, first editions, art editions, archaeological documents and drawings.
Our very own recipe for an unforgettable day in Cologny: A visit to the Martin Bodmer foundation followed by an exceptional meal at the Auberge du Lion d’Or, and a leisurely stroll towards Pré-Byron on the hillsides overlooking Lake Geneva. You will be swept off your feet!
