"The scenes are in ontreuux, switzerland, with a natural romance on the banks of the vast lake of geneva, where the lights and mountains are scattered with churches and dotted houses, which byron says are like pictures "With the nourishment and air that meditation requires" • I have always disliked traveling with groups. Recently, I wrote articles that were all practical routes I summarized freely. Although I know nothing about Hulunber's route, I hope that there will be some help for my friends who are traveling to Switzerland ~. Only public accommodation: you can choose from Lausanne, Montreux and Wowe. The train is not far from the convenient, I chose to be in the Montreux Ulotte Hotel Eurotelmontreux Lake View Economy Room 956RMB/night Elegant Lake View Twin Room 1460 yuan/night Three minutes walk from the train station, the view of the lake from the balcony of the room is beautiful. You can walk or bus to Xiyong Castle, the scenery along the way will not let you down ~ This price accommodation is really cost-effective in Switzerland."

"On the square outside the Palais des Nations in Geneva, there is a 12-meter-high, 5-ton sculpture-a wooden chair with broken legs. The author of the sculpture, Daniel of Switzerland, gave the subtitle: Living with Dignity. The sculpture symbolizes the damage caused by landmines to human flesh, reveals the disasters that war has brought to the world, and shows that peace is the common yearning of mankind."

Reasons to Recommend: The Wooden Chair with a Broken Leg, located in the square in front of the Palais des Nations is a sculpture by the Geneva artist Daniel Besett. It was established in 1997 when the International Disabled Persons' Federation appealed to people to pay attention to the harm caused to civilians by landmines in war. Although this sculpture is only an "attraction" for seeing, it has a very special significance. There is no written description around the sculpture, but the broken leg undoubtedly symbolizes the human body which has suffered a loss by the landmine explosion, leaving people with thoughts about war and peace.

"Geneva is a very international city. Many international organizations are headquartered in Geneva, which may be due to Switzerland's neutral status. Several ceasefire and armistice negotiations are preferred to be held in Geneva. Geneva seems to be synonymous with "peace." … Geneva does make people feel calm and gentle, probably because there are not many pedestrians and tourists on Saturdays and holidays. The headquarters of the International Red Cross is built on a high slope. It is not luxurious from the outside. However, it is the center of global relief and charity activities. Numerous refugees and victims of wars and natural disasters have been helped by the International Red Cross. The Palais des Nations is a famous building in Geneva. It is the headquarters of the United Nations Office in Europe. The flags of all nations represent his status. There is a famous sculpture on the square opposite the Palais des Nations. A giant wooden chair more than ten meters high has a broken leg and stands on three legs in the middle of the square. It is very eye-catching and enough to arouse people's curiosity. It is a memorial sculpture established by the International Disabled Persons’ Federation in 1997 to call attention to the damage caused by landmines to civilians during the war. The works remind people of the importance of war that endangers peace. Stopping war and cherishing peace should be the common aspiration of mankind. This may be the appeal of art."
