Luna Park

Things to do

Test your stomach on the rides at this traditional funfair in the centre of Geneva.

This fun fair has been visiting Geneva over Christmas and Easter time for around a century, and though the rides are now thoroughly modern beasts, the heart of the event probably hasn’t changed much. In age-old tradition, there’s ample chance for kids to stuff themselves with candy floss and sweets before testing the strength of their stomachs on the waltzers. Rides include water slides, a carousel and various contraptions that propel you upside down or round and round or both at once. Set up on the spacious Plaine de Plainpalais, it’s easy to combine a Christmas visit to Luna Park with the Cirque de Noël nearby.
