“An iconic attraction does not mean it worths a visit”
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.

“It's a flowerbed next to the main road, ok?”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

Ok, I really sometimes wonder what makes some Trip Advisors give 4 or 5 star ratings to such thoroughly mediocre self-declared 'attractions'. In any case, the Geneva Flower Clock genuinely and undisputedly tops the list. It's a flower clock, for heaven's sake - a bunch of flowers next to a very, very busy road.

Put here in the 1950's to promote tourism, it doesn't even look especially big or nice. Its main claim to faim is that its seconds-pointer is 'without doubt the largest in the world' ... so, if you like taking pictures of yourself in front of flowerbed, go for it, but I advise using the Italian restaurant behind the flower clock for a break and a cool drink outside instead. Unlike the clock, they're actually quite good...! :)

“Flower Clock”
Reviewed January 8, 2013

Iconic tourist attraction in the centre of Geneva next to the Pont du Mont Blanc. If you are going for a stroll along the lake then you will no doubt come across it. Always worth a photo especially around Spring time!

“The Spring is best to see the Geneva Flower Clock”
Reviewed January 5, 2013

The Spring is best to see the Geneva Flower Clock and you get some good photos of the world famoun clock, its a reflection of the important Swiss Luxury watch industry in Geneva.
