Domaine des Penthes hosts two museums: The Museum of the Swiss Abroad and the Geneva Military Museum. In good weather, the view from the park is splendid, showing Mont Blanc—the highest peak in Western Europe—and more generally the Alps and Lake Geneva. The park is adorned with rare fruit trees and criss-crossed by paths that lead to the Château des Penthes.

 

The Millennium Hourglass can also be seen on the site. A true symbol of the transition to the 21st century, it is the largest hourglass in Europe (5.7m high). It can make a half turn every 36 seconds.

 

Domaine des Penthes is a 12-minute bus ride from the railway station.

Originally created as a ‘Sunday school’ to teach Protestant catechism, the chapel was later transformed into a place of worship. The interior layout and the addition of an organ only date from the 1950s. The chapel houses a 1946 fresco painting of the Last Supper by young painter Thierry Vernet, a friend of Nicolas Bouvier. Another special feature is that the bell is still rung manually! The chapel is 50 metres from the station.

Did you know ?

On 9 September 1898, Empress Elisabeth of Austria, invited to lunch at the Château de Pregny, refused Baroness de Rotschild's proposal to borrow her boat to return to Territet the following day. She was murdered as she was about to board the shipping company’s steamer as it was leaving the Beau-Rivage Hotel in Geneva.

Many castles, owned by prominent families, are located in Pregny-Chambésy. Empress Joséphine de Beauharnais, Voltaire, Adolphe and Julie de Rothschild, Charles-René Pictet, and more stayed there.

When it was first built in 1857, Chambésy Station connected Geneva and Versoix. The stations were originally simple wooden shelters until the buildings were constructed in 1858. It was not until 1877 that Compagnie de chemin de fer Suisse-Occidentale announced that it would install suburban trains stopping at the level crossing. This is how the Pregny stop was created.
