Our centre


The John Knox International Center is situated in Geneva on a large wooded plot of land close to the international organisations and with a magnificent view of the Geneva countryside, the Jura mountains and, in the distance, the lake.

Access is via a quiet shaded road.  The airport is not far away.  Public transport runs nearby and, as of December 2022, the 59 bus will take passengers to the “John Knox” bus stop on our doorstep.

The Center is a place of welcome, of peace and of dialogue, an oasis of calm open to people from all horizons and all religions.  It is simple, friendly and multi-cultural. Visitors come from all around the world.

We offer meeting and conference facilities, a cafeteria and rooms at affordable prices.

We regularly host intergovernmental organisations, NGOs, diplomatic missions, universities, local authorities, socio-professional groups for training and seminars as well as those focused on wellness and spiritual matters.  We also welcome visiting guests in search of a quiet place to eat and sleep.

Our aim is to satisfy our guests who seek a peaceful haven for reflection and dialogue.  We are motivated by our values of hospitality, conviviality and well-being together.


We are working towards renovating the Center.  Some buildings will be restored other replaced.  The new design will be ecological and sustainable.  The exceptional landscape heritage will be enhanced.

Our hospitality mission will be extended to the development of the programme of conferences and meetings on themes such as ethics, sustainable development, spirituality and inter-religious dialogue.  Furthermore, the Center continues to support the “Witness Together in Geneva” movement.

The new Center will continue to serve the local and international community which surrounds it.
