小思文
"The Patek Philippe Museum is also a very exquisite and good place. There are many varieties of watches. Many of the Patek Philippe are also handcrafted masters. You can appreciate the cultural characteristics of many hundred-year-old watches."

Reasons to Recommend: In 2001, Philip Stern was founded on the Patek Philippe Museum for his enthusiasm for watches. The museum is housed in a building full of Art Deco style. This “temple of watchmaking art” used to be a studio for gemstone cutters and jewelers. Today, it has a collection of antique watches and historical films about the Patek Philippe brand, which can be used to understand its history and craftsmanship.

"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."

"Two stops from the Palais des Nations, take bus No. 20. The museum is a bit small, and it accepts 10 yuan tickets, but it is free on the first Sunday of every month. The park where it is located is pleasant, with green grass and wildflowers all over the mountains, and trees supporting the sky. It is not a check-in point, but it overlooks Lake Geneva."
