Description
No wonder the Swiss are so respected for their timepieces. Both a technological and floral masterpiece, the Horloge Fleurie (Flower Clock) is one of Geneva's most photographed sites. With over 6,000 ... Read more
plants as its setting, this exacting design sits alongside the Jardin Anglais's lake side promenade, surrounded by beautiful trees and bush. Keeping time since 1955, it is made up of eight floral circles whose colors change with the season. A wonder to behold, it's given a new design every season. Who could imagine standing around watching time go by being so entertaining?

Pretty flower clock :) It's suitably around the corner from the birthplace of Le Berceau de La Haute Horlogerie watch maker!

It is actually a “colorful grass clock” but I can see how that is less appealing from a marketing POV.

Located in the English Garden, represents a tribute to the watch industry of the city.

Located a few steps away from Lake Geneva, The Flower Clock is a botanical timekeeper and one of Switzerland’s most photographed sites. Situated at a corner of Jardin Anglais, the clock was created for the first time in 1955 and contains about 6,500 flowers and plants. The floral arrangements change according to the season. The flower clock is not only a unique masterpiece, it also tells the time with Swiss precision - the time you see is transmitted by satellite. Another important detail - the seconds-hand is 2.5 metres long, the world’s longest!

Another popular spot in Geneva, located at Jardin Anglais which is right along the lake and Pont du Mont Blanc (the main bridge with the flags on it). Here is a great spot for a picture, they changes the flowers often, so you'll never know what it might look like.
