Let’s go back together to 1602 in Geneva, when the Savoy country attacked the city by surprise. Geneva’s victory is in part due to La Mère Royaume (the super grandma) who is considered as a legend as she poured boiling hot vegetable soup on soldiers climbing (“Escalade” in French) up the walls of the city. If you want to find more about the Escalade’s history click here.
During this family celebration you will connect with young talents from China, citizens and friends of Switzerland. To properly celebrate the ESCALADE, some Raclette will be offered to welcome you; the famous Escalade short distance running race will take place to warm you up; the chocolate Marmite will be broken to be shared; some typical Swiss food and wine will whet your appetite; and many more surprises will be waiting for you.
