The design of this watch emulates the giant timepiece that hangs outside the Beyer shop. It has served as a trademark for decades, and can be seen from a long way off on the Bahnhofstrasse.

Flower clock

The famous flower clock at Bürkliplatz, which Beyer presented to the City of Zurich in 1985, is once again showing itself in its resplendent spring colours. The clock comprises a 70kg heavy, radio-controlled movement with a cast iron case, set in a raised concrete plinth. The face measures five metres in diameter and is a popular photo subject among tourists.

Map of Zurich

The Beyer City Map is a particularly useful aid. It helps both locals and tourists to find their way around Zurich. Three clearly presented map sections will guide you through the beautiful City on the Limmat. A unique feature of this map is the list of all the shops along the Bahnhofstrasse. There are also a host of restaurant tips.

Of particular interest to our foreign visitors is the detailed tourist information about Zurich, including important website addresses and telephone numbers. We would be pleased to give you a City Map in our shop or send you one by post.

Golden Promoter of Zurich Tourism

Since 1939, we have been actively supporting Zurich Tourism with a generous financial contribution. We are a so-called “Golden Promoter”, and are thus one of the principal promoters of Zurich Tourism and the City of Zurich.

It is very important that the Zurich region is marketed in a sustained and professional manner, both at home and abroad. Only thus can up-and-coming markets be continually developed and existing ones fostered. Thanks to the creation of tourists attractions and services, Zurich is and remains a city that is always well worth a visit.
