English Garden (Jardin Anglais)

184 omdömen
Some 20 percent of Geneva is covered in parks, of which the most popular is the English Garden, or Jardin Anglais. Boasting a superb position on Lake Geneva, this space has served as a prime meeting point for locals and tourists alike since 1854, its grand trees, stately fountains and sculptures of the city's noteworthy artists evoking the elegance of an unhurried age. A bandstand hosts concerts in the warmer months.

A national monument commemorating Geneva joining the Swiss Confederation in 1814 is another highlight, while the star attraction of over 50 years is the floral clock, one of the city's best-known symbols. These days, it's a delightfully eccentric display, with the passing of time marked not only by the hands but also by the seasonal flowers that make up the arrangement. And at around 2.5 yards, the second hand is the longest in the world.
