January sees two of Geneva’s most exciting art events making this an ideal time to visit the Swiss city. Geneva Lux festival will take place between 19 January and 4 February, while Art Genève is from 25 to 28 January. Geneva also has plenty of art galleries for you to explore during your visit.

Geneva Lux Festival

Every year Swiss light artists are invited to create their own installations around the city in the Geneva Lux Festival, which has sustainability very much at the forefront. Exploring the link between humans and the environment, the installations often involve individual participation to power the installations. The result is a dazzling display which lights up Geneva through its darkest months.
