The International Monument to the Reformation (French: Monument international de la Réformation; German: Internationales Reformationsdenkmal), usually known as the Reformation Wall (French: Mur des réformateurs), was inaugurated in 1909 in Geneva, Switzerland. It honours many of the main individuals, events, and documents of the Protestant Reformation by depicting them in statues and bas-reliefs.
The Wall is in the grounds of the University of Geneva, which was founded by John Calvin, and was built to commemorate the 400th anniversary of Calvin's birth and the 350th anniversary of the university's establishment. It is built into the old city walls, and the monument's location there is designed to represent the integral importance of the fortifications, and therefore of the city of Geneva, to the Reformation.

I wish there was more than just this wall. The cost of activities related to the 500 year anniversary of the Reformation is about 500 chf. I don't think Jesus (a carpenter by trade) could have afforded to celebrate it.

It’s amazing, just amazing place to read all that stories in many languages. Each statue has its own name, story and language! Wow! So beautiful to see that and so thankful to the Geneva city. I enjoyed reading every single story however some of it was very sad. The place also is really great and beautiful!

A peaceful park where the effort has been put in to tell the story. What a story it is. Men from across the world standing up for what they knew was in the Bible against the institution of the day, demanding change and often paying for that demand with their lives. Worth the stop, whether it's for a peaceful stroll, or an exploration into an intriguing part of history.

I enjoyed the quiet time strolling around and taking pictures of people. Good for families or couples and friends to have picnic or chitchat under the shade of trees or one of the benches. It's a nice place for a lazy afternoon to learn the history and significance of the reformation wall to Genevois.

In a beautiful park... And looks great. But not the most important point to cover in Geneva. Go only if you are in the parc des bastions.

It's one of the most famous place to see in Geneva. This wall represents les réformateurs, this people like Calvin for example are famous for their work on Protestantism. My guess would be that you buy some beers and enjoy the park as you drink them in front of the wall.

The International Monument to the Reformation aka Reformation wall was built to honor the Protestant Reformation and is located in a very nice park at the heart of Geneva. Nice to visit the park alone, with a group or family with kids as well.
