2. There is an Impact Hub co-working space.

3. The Jet d’Eau rises to more than 450 feet.

4. The Flower Clock’s colors change with the seasons. The second hand is the biggest in the world, more than 8 feet long.

5. The Broken Chair, is nearly 40 feet tall, it was created in 1997 as a tribute to victims of anti-personnel mines.

6. It is the birthplace of luxury watchmaking.
