The birthplace of fine watchmaking: from the Flower Clock to the watchmakers’ shops.
Geneva's "Flower Clock" was created in 1955 as a symbol of the city's watchmakers and dedication to nature. Its second hand is the longest in the world at 2.50 meters.
The clock is painstakingly designed, encompassing 6500 plants and is set in the Jardin Anglais on the lakeside promenade. A new design is created every season, each one as tasteful as the last. It is one of Geneva's most photographed sites.
It’s just a few steps from the flowers of Geneva‘s most famous clock to the dazzling shop windows of the Rue du Rhône, where you can find an amazing concentration of world famous watches and luxury brands.
From fashion to jewellery, the great brands that give Geneva its reputation all have their own boutiques. A shopping paradise at your feet!
