HERitage Day

On Friday 10 September, Geneva will host Switzerland’s very first HERitage day! A rich didactic and inspirational programme not to be missed, organised just before the European Heritage Days.

Journée du matrimoine 2021

Created in the Ile-de-France region of France in 2015 to promote gender equality, the European HERitage days are now held in numerous cities throughout Europe on the same dates as the heritage days.

For the very first time in Switzerland, Geneva will thus promote this mixed and egalitarian vision of heritage. Recently renamed by the Executive Council of the City of Geneva, the Palais Anna and Jean- Gabriel Eynard will be the main site for this event built around a rich and varied programme.

  • Guided visit – The Palais Anna and Jean-Gabriel Eynard (10 a.m., 2 p.m. and 4 p.m.)
  • 100Elles* guided walk. Discover the women who made Geneva what it is today (10.30 a.m., 2.30 p.m. and 4.30 p.m.)
