This attraction always reminds me of the Champions tv series. You can get rigjt up to the water jet via a concrete walkway, what which way the wind is blowing or you will end soaked. It's worth visiting the Jet d'eau just to have your picture taken.

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.

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.

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.

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.
