A dynamic, cosmopolitan city like Geneva devotes a large part of its budget to cultural affairs. Supporting creativity in the arts and facilitating public access to culture in all its forms are the principal policy objectives of the Department of Culture and Sport.

The following web pages contain a directory of cultural activities which can be enjoyed by English-speakers without any knowledge of French. Everything you need to know about a variety of presentations, from art exhibitions to all theatre and cinema productions in English is just one click away. Additionally, every municipal library has a selection of English language books, and all City of Geneva museums and art galleries provide English-language commentaries. Remember to check out the annual neighbourhood and city-wide events, like the period-costume pageant and historic parade of the Escalade in December.

We wish you lots of exciting discoveries as you explore the City of Geneva’s cultural scene!
