  • Palais Lumière

The Palais Lumière was opened in 2006 after two years of renovation work. This former spa establishment from 1903 to 1984 has kept all its splendor and is now a cultural and congress center.


  • This former spa, treasure of the historical bathhouse architecture (1902) was converted into a convention and cultural center in 2006. It houses 800 m2 of art exhibit space as well as a multi media library. The Palais Lumière is ideally located in the heart of the city, facing Lake Geneva and across from the pier where passengers arrive from Switzerland.

    The Palais Lumière, a cultural centre, proposes exhibitions every season.
