Discover over five centuries of watchmaking history at Patek Philippe Museum, which houses a large collection of fine timepieces and related mechanisms created from the 16th century up to the present day. Founded by one of Switzerland's leading watch manufacturers, the museum devotes a great deal of attention to the brand's own luxury products, with a special focus on modern precision pieces and lavish 19th-century pocket watches.

  • The hotel is located in the heart of the city centre, 20 to 30 minutes ' walk from Gare de Coroban. You can leave your baggage, jacket or baggage in the locker in the basement and go inside. The first floor shows the tools used for the creation of the clock. The second floor of the wrist watch collection is crammed with a large number of impressions that are poorly explained by the individual. The third floor exhibits a historical collection of Patek Philippe. The iPad on the first floor will be supplemented with an explanation. While it is forbidden to take photographs, there are a full catalogue of photos at the reception.

  • Loved this museum. I wish I had more time on hand. There are some beautiful masterpieces and styles you never imagined a watch could look like. BTW, it's included in your Geneva Pass. Classy, stylish and elegant! Go for it!
  • Loved this! One of the best experiences I had in Geneva. These are true works of art, showcasing art styles and historical landmarks in clock making. I had no idea there would be that much to be awed by (clocks are not the most mystifying thing that comes to mind usually), but there really was. Just beautiful!
