  • Over the Pont du Mont-Blanc bridge is the English Garden where you will see this beautiful flower clock. The flowers get changed. Worth a visit.  more »
  • The clock is original and nice to look at. I expected nicer colors and flowers but maybe not the season. Good to see  more »
  • Nice to take a look if you're passing by, but I was expecting more... I didn't think it's super original, but I understand its context as an important symbol for the city. Maintenance is good.  more »
