“Ok for a short stop”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2013

This is OK for a short stop and a photo opportunity, but is not much more. I can see from other photos on this site that there are a number of flower mixes used. But ultimately it is not much, but it does seem to draw a lot of tour groups passing by.

“Cute photo opportunity”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2013

People love to have their pictures taken in front of the flower clock, I have never done it, but it is a great spot for people watching.

“Nothing special”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2013

Nothing to worry or get exited about. You will have a look at it anyway while you take a walk around the lake. Fails its reputation. A simple clock sometimes decorated by flowers.

“An iconic attraction does not mean it worths a visit”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2013

The Flower Clock is okay. When in Geneva you must go there, take some pictures, enjoy the flowers (or, in the winter, imagine how they would look in springtime) and move on quickly. Located close to the Lake, spend there 2 or 3 minutes of your time in the city. But, please, go there to be able to say you have visited one of the main attractions of Geneva.
