About Geneva Flower Clock Or Horloge Fleurie, Geneva
This “botanical time keeper” is a huge attraction in Geneva. The huge clock stands for the city’s rich history of popular watch and clock makers. The really unique attraction is a definite must visit while in the city.
5 meters in diameter, the lovely clock has been built by using manicured bushes and flowering plants to carve out the numbers, the dials and the hands. It is decorated with around 6500 of these plants and shrubs.
But isn’t all just for show. The clock can actually tell the time. Moreover, the typical Swiss precision is apparent even in this pretty art work of sorts. Most interestingly, the decorations on the clock are changed from time to time depending upon the season and the time of the year so there is always something new to see.
Geneva’s reputation as proficient watch and clock makers is well known all around the world, and the Geneva Flower Clock is possibly the most beautiful memorial to that fact. As it is out in the open, you don’t need to buy tickets for Geneva Flower Clock. It can be safely said that Geneva Flower Clock ticket prices are for free, but if you have included it in a tour of other attractions then there will be some ticket for Geneva Flower Clock.

Geneva Flower Clock Or Horloge Fleurie, Geneva Reviews - Write a Review
The clock and plants are very well kept. It's unique and I've never seen anything similar before, that's why I love it! It's not somewhere you'd spend very long (just snap a few photos and that's it) but it's useful as it tells the time and adds something interesting into what otherwise would be a normal flowerbed.
I don't really understand what the hype is about, but it is an easy to find and good meet-up spot in Geneva. The plants and clock are also well maintained, but I wouldn't necessarily go out of my way to see this.
One of the most iconic places in Geneva to take a photo, although their restorations sometimes make this place unavailable. But today I was able to take a shot!
A place to see tourists taking pictures of themselves with a clock. Sometimes you can see the gardeners at work too.
If you are in geneva you MUST come to the flower clock and make a pic !
