Time pieces are a symbol of Switzerland, hence this simple yet elegantly decorated clock. It really is nothing to shout about but it being in Switzerland it is worth a detour from the old town. Intricately decorated with flowers even in winter, it offers different colors every season. Hence refreshingly attractive.

When you are in Geneva, then you will go to see lake Geneva and when you take a round and go toward Rue de Mont Blanc, you will this beautiful creation. Every season they change pattern and arrangement of flowers, so go there take a selfie and enjoy.

The flower clock was very close to the hotel I stayed in. When I arrived in hotel, I freshen up & wanted to explore nearby attraction. It was the first thing I have found and I loved it.

The flower clock is underwhelming. Just a large clock atop a garden of flowers. It's interesting to see and photograph if it's compatible with journey in Geneva, but if you're unable to visit the flower clock, don't worry too much.

The flower clock is very pretty and the time is very precise! I've learned that this huge flower clock is a living tribute to Switzerland's legacy of timepiece craftsmanship. This is very colorful, cute and certainly one of Geneva's most photographed sites, don't miss yours :)

Nice plants, only came across the clock on the way to steamer ride. Interesting to see it but not worth the effort to make a special journey

It's one of those famous tourist attractions where you're left feeling "is that it?". It can be very crowded with bus parties who are tipped off right next to it to have their photo taken there and bundled back on again. The English Garden surrounding the clock was full of temporary fencing due to some sort of event going on,... More

The flower clock is one of the items on the to do list when in Geneva. It won't take long to stop at the clock and take pictures, and is a beautiful display of what Switzerland is known for - watches and clocks.
