Brooklyn, État de New York, États Unis

One of Geneva's sights. Forgettable but easy to visit as you walk around the lake.

One of the examples of what you can do when you die rich, donate some to the city and the rest to build an impressive mausoleum on the lakeside. The Duke of Brunswick certainly achieved this in 1874..

First to Review

Fascinating story behind this monument to the vanity of a 19th Century nobleman. Charles d'Este-Guelph, Duke of Brunswick was a linguist, musician, investor and horseman. He also left much of his vast fortune to the City of Geneva, on the condition that a mausoleum was built in his memory. So here it is. It looks a little like the Albert Memorial in London but owes its design influence to a 14th Century tomb in Verona, Italy.
