Did you know ?

Geneva Cornavin Station was inaugurated in 1858.
It was first owned by Paris Lyon à la Méditerranée until 1912 and then bought by SBB.
It burned on 11 February 1909 and the fire almost completely destroyed the building.
With the arrival of the Léman Express, Geneva Station is showing signs of saturation. SBB is working on a project to develop the Geneva rail hub. These changes will provide more space to introduce new services and offer greater comfort and safety to passengers. The railway project is coordinated with Canton and the City of Geneva projects to promote mobility exchanges, rethink urban spaces, and develop the districts around Cornavin. 

The station door was created by a Geneva artist, Carmen Perrin. It weighs almost two tons. The artist wanted it to look light, with the glass circles inspired by the station clock motif. Two murals, painted in 1932 by Max Weber, an artist from Aargau, can be seen in the station.
