Geneva Flower Clock in English GardenLocated near the Jet d’Eau, Jardin Anglais, or the English Garden, houses the famous “Flower Clock,” the largest flower clock in the world, symbolizing Geneva’s historical association with the watch making industry and its dedication to living harmoniously with nature. The clock was built in 1955 almost a hundred years after the park was created on the left bank of Lake Geneva.

The dial of the Flower Clock is made up of around 6,500 flowers that are replaced with new arrangements several times in a year. The seconds hand of Geneva's Flower Clock is the longest in the world - stretching 2.5 meters.

The park also contains several notable works of art, including benches, fountains, and the popular ‘Monument National’.
