Nice in all weather, especially sunny days

Check out the jet d eau both from land as well as from the free boat taxis. It is great on a cloudy day but even nicer on a sunny day. Great pictures to send to family.

For supposedly one of the best attractions in Geneva it was pretty average. Worth seeing but don't expect to spend a lot of time there.

A fountain in the middle of a lake makes for a spectacular view. Having seen it once, twice or thrice, most people drive by or walk by without even noticing that it exists! The Eiffel Tower of Geneva.

Famous landmark and short walk round the lake to get close. Lots of people taking pictures of it to make it look like it is coming out of their mouths! :)

A real force of water that is very impressive - so much higher than I expected. Not a great deal to it but worth a look definitely!

If you arrive in Geneva, it's impossible to miss the Jet d'Eau. It's also visible from the air, when you fly over Geneva.

I felt so small and so big at the same time visiting le Jet d'eaux. Nothing really exceptional however if you feel in a rush and have no time to visit everything, this gives you a relaxation power.

It was on a cold afternoon when we decided to see Jet'dEau. It was awesome to feel the force of the water when we walked on the stree inside the lake. At the end of the afternoon, it was very nice to see a lot of sailboats on the lake.

Took about 5 minutes to find it from our hotel 5 min away ha. Find the lake, water jet found. Recommend you get out by the pier near the spa for the closest views.

Just walk around the edge of Lake Geneva on a beautiful fall day and feel your body lose its tension-its what vaca is all about. The water spout is quite the spectacle as well.
