Visited Geneva for four days on a school trip. Unfortunately the jet was turned off for the entire time we were there. We were told it was too windy. It appeared not windy at all, I guess 140m up it would be a lot more...More

This is the largest water jet I've seen, we could see it from my friend's flat, and as this was my first visit to Geneva I could use it as a reference point as I was off discovering the city. It's impressive.

The famous water jet or fountain is visible throughout most sites in Geneva. It is easy to use as a landmark when you explore Geneva-you won’t get lost!

We walked really close to the Jet and almost got wet due to change in find direction. It's an icon of Geneva and hard to miss its uniqueness. The serine blue water of the lake and the mountain backdrop add another dimension to this icon....More
