Happy Birthday Switzerland at Chez Calvin - Geneva

Let’s celebrate the foundation of the Swiss Confederacy from August, 1st 1891 at Chez Calvin in Geneva!

ASW Events Team
ASMALLWORLD invites members and their guests to join ambassador Aline Yordikian for an evening of celebration at Chez Calvin!

The date is actually inspired by the Federal Charter of 1291, the Pacte du Rütli, when the Schwyz, Uri and Unterwald Cantons swore the oath of confederation, an action which later came to be regarded as the foundation of Switzerland.

ASW members in Geneva will have the opportunity to taste the Swiss national dish in the summer time accompanied by a glass of white or rose wine. The Swiss melted cheese dish heated with a spirit lamp will be served with bread, onions and cornichons.

Fellow ASW members will be warmly welcomed at an outdoor private area at Chez Calvin, in the noteworthy Eaux-Vives Town Hall built in 1906-1908 by Swiss architect Léon Bovy. Inspired by typical Swiss medieval architecture and topped with a clock belfry and a watchman's gallery, both of which are symbols of Swiss communal traditions.

This special celebration will include paper lanterns and Swiss flag bunting offered to ASW members and their guests to mark this important date in the country we all treasure.
