“My favourite park in Geneva - its huge and has lots a paths for strolling, some beautiful gardens and buiildings. Well worth a visit if you have time. ”
“One very beautiful park, right near the lake, with a walkway to the very famous and must-see Geneva's "Jet-d'eau" (water-fountain) on one side, and the Mont-Blanc bridge on the other.”
“L'horloge Fleurie is a flower bed designed with the numbers and shapes of a clock, with the mechanical workings of clock hands marking time. For 45 years Geneva's flower clock was the largest flower clock in the world. Geneva's flower clock is located in Jardin Anglais (English garden) It was first created in 1955 and since then every season the clock face is replanted with a new carpet of seasonal shrubs and flowers. It is composed on 6,500 flowers and plants and is one of the city's most photographed sites.”
“One of the most expensive shopping streets in Geneva with many world known brands (Chanel, Hermes, LV, Gucci, Mont Blanc, etc). Not for every budget but for any eye.”
“A lovely park on the UN/Nations side of the lake. You can take the boat from the lakeside over to the other side (check the transport section of this guide). Great for lakeside strolling either into or out of town, also close to the Botanical Gardens and home to the History of Science Museum.”
“Nice walk or run to get there - if you have kids they will swig for hours from the tree equipped with bike inner tubes. Odd but makes sense when you see it.”
