What to do?

  • Geneva is an amazing option if you want to stay for several days some luxury hotels like Le Beau-Rivage offer Kosher meals upon request. However, they don’t have a Kosher menu and meals are cooked in the kitchen with no confirmed supervision.
  • In this beautiful city you can visit Macom, Geneva’s principal Jewish community centre, which offers a sanctuary, a main Jewish library and Le Jardin Kosher restaurant.
  • Zurich is home to nearly half of Switzerland’s estimated 7,000 Jews, according to Europe for Visitors,  and it has been a centre for Jewish culture for centuries, so that can be another stop in your itinerary.
  • If youre an adventurous traveller, take a hike, skii or climb great heights, such as the famous matterhorn, in the outstanding outdoor options Switzerland offers.
