This old power station on the Rhone, once a symbol of the city's rapid industrial growth at the end of the 19th century, today serves as a theater.

This is an impressive old building, which has been built to allow the water to flow underneath it. It's well worth visiting when the water is gushing underneath.

A very huge building that used to be the power plant of the city in the past. Now it is used usually as a theatre or for other reasons !!! Interesting to visit when there is something on !!!

Enormous building, situated in the middle of the river, and apparently still controlling the level of the Geneva lake. Very beautiful from the outside and interesting inside too. Large industrial components and now an enormous place for catering purposes.

You are on a small island at the westend of the lake. A very attractive view on Geneva and a Swatch museum. You can enjoy a good ice-cream

This "space" is awesome... tall ceilings, loads of space. They can cater to anything. Really cool pieces of machinery lying around. Love the decor!

the BFM as we call it here, is lovely from the outside and occupies a magnificent place on the Rhône. INside there are the old turbines, quite picturesque. It is perhaps only open on concert nights, but as it is in the center of town...More
