    The Christmas illuminations are back to brighten up the City | City of Geneva

    Christmas rhymes with illuminations. A total of twenty decorative, low-energy installations will spring into life from Friday 24 November until 2 January 2024.

    As in the past, the public will be able to discover a majority of the decorations at the very heart of the city (Fusterie, Pont de la Machine, Pont des Bergues, Treille, Ile Rousseau) and in the shopping streets (rue and Place du Rhône, Confédération, Marché, Croix-d’Or).

    Return of the illuminations to the different districts

    Some changes have been made this year compared to 2022: the illuminations have returned to the different districtssuch as in Eglantyne-Jebb Park (formerly Parc des Acacias). “At the request of the inhabitants, several installations will also be located in the old town, helping showcase the historic heart of the city,” continues Executive Councilor Marie Barbey-Chpuis, responsible for the Department of Security and Sports. Accordingly, Place du Bourg-de-Four, Place de la Taconnerie and Grand-Rue will be illuminated.

    Once again, certain installations will be powered by… your calf muscles. In keeping with tradition, the impressive Christmas tree will return to Place du Molard, and you’ll need to climb a step to light the tree. On Place du Rhône, the illuminated trees will be powered by muscle bikes.

    Come the evening, members of the public will be able to light the trees by pedalling. The other Christmas illuminations are powered as usual by the grid. To limit electricity consumption, the majority of the installations will be set according to the clock and will be lit up between 5 p.m. and 10.30 p.m. The others will operate according to the public lighting times.
