There is a little gem of a museum in Geneva, Switzerland that is not very often talked about but really worth mentioning, it’s the MEG – the Musée d’Ethnographie de Genève. The new building which was inaugurated in 2014 and designed by Bern based architectural firm Graber Pulver, received the European Museum of the Year award in 2017.
Shaped like a pagoda, the whole concept of the museum is based on public accessibility. With around 80.000 objects and 15.000 pictorial and auditory documents, the collection is one of the largest in Switzerland. Over a thousand objects are exposed in sleek well lit large color-coded glass showcases. In addition, the ethnomusicology department presents musical instruments from different parts of the world and acoustic samples to be listened to by means of headphones.
This amazing time-capsule of humanity is like a 3D encyclopedia inviting the visitor to explore our diversity: Africa, America, Asia, Europe, and Oceania. The objects on show are like messages from across the world that convey the world’s cultures.
Curiosities, rarities, ambivalent objects picked up by missionaries, diplomatic gifts, and scientific field research artifacts are all part of the collections.
Once your visit is done, don’t forget to stop by at the modern, airy café for a coffee or a bite to eat. On sunny days, tables are placed on the esplanade at the entrance of the museum and you find yourself enjoying the charming landscaped green oasis facing you.
A lovely way to take a break and discover something new. You also realize how connected we all are.

Opened in 2012, The Hamburger Foundation is ranked 5th among the 10 best hamburgers in the world according to Twisper.
The online travel & lifestyle magazine Twisper listed The Hamburger Foundation among the 10 best hamburgers after Germany, Portugal & France.
Founded by 3 childhood friends, THF also runs Food Trucks in the streets of Geneva, allowing the general public to get a taste of their
limited yet very tasty menu. The founders, George, Marc & Yann spent a year in the US learn about all the subtleties of making the perfect burger.
All the ingredients are locally produced from the meat, to the tomatoes, the lettuce and the cheese.
Their Story :
“We’re three childhood friends who used to meet up in the only burger joint in town and dream of one day creating our own place. We all went our separate ways after school and time went by. Over the years, we learned about restaurants, marketing and acting, lived in the States, Paris and China and worked at many different jobs. All along we remained friends and kept talking about our old dream. Then one day we stopped talking and started planning. We’re not scientists or the next Steve Jobs so we picked the only idea we ever had: burgers, the ground zero of food. We set our goal to make the best possible burger and surround it with all the love and care of great hospitality. In the Summer of 2012, we reunited in Geneva, our hometown and started looking for a space and for the best food suppliers. We found the suppliers first and then built a food-truck to start cooking our burgers on the street. Today, we still have the truck, but we also have a restaurant and a team of about forty young amazing people helping us keep the dream alive.”
