“Water jet”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 July 2014

It's a great water fountain but it's not something you spend a lot of time admiring. It's just there in the background much of the time.

“A Big Squirt”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 July 2014

After all the high reviews and publicity, we had expected something special. This is a normal fountain ,though it that goes higher than most. we had read about it being lit in colors at night, but they were subdued to say the least. Perhaps our expectations were too high.

“dont waste your time”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 July 2014

please please do not schedule separate time for this. if you go to geneva you will see the lake and point mont blanc at some time.... you will see this also at that time... there is nothing except a long spout of water - really long but then that is it.... DO NOT spend extra time,effort and money for this.

“landmark fountain of geneva.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 July 2014

it is a famous landmark of the city of geneva n also one of the largest fountains of the world.situated at the point where lake geneva empties into the rhone river,it is visible from all around n even visible if ure flying over the city!walking around the english gardens one can walk upto the jet.its intresting to know why it was there n the details from a local guide.it shoots abt 140 metres into the sky n at a given time theres abt 7000 litres of water in the air from the jet.in daytime one can see the beautiful sights around the gardens n the jet n the lake whilst at night special lights give it a lovely feel.
