Palais de Nation Tour

Our tour guides will inform you about the activities of the United Nations and about how the UN impacts your life, among the people who make it happen. You will also discover the Palais des Nations, a unique building, formerly the headquarters of the League of Nations.

The Palais des Nations is currently being refurbished in certain areas. Many attractions are still accessible.
