“Stunning!”
Reviewed 26 July 2014

A really stunning structure which takes your breath away. I thought it was better viewed from afar with the wonderful Geneva backdrop. A great centrepoint in the beautiful lake.

“Majestic structure”
Reviewed 25 July 2014 via mobile

A truly impressive water feature which sends vast plumes of water soaring into the sky which can be seen for miles around in the Geneva cityscape peeking over the tops of the buildings. The engineering and workmanship is impressive in design and scope, and the jet itself up close is impressive to a fault. The history is intriguing, and should you find yourself in Geneva, you should definitely set aside a portion of your day to see it.

“Nothing special”
Reviewed 25 July 2014

No service and safety is zero as you can slip while going under the fountain. The best is setting near the fountain and enjoy some coffee and icecream.

“Nice to look at”
Reviewed 25 July 2014

The jet is huge and we saw a kayaker kayak underneath the spray of water. If you walk along the boardwalk to see the Jet, expect to get a little bit wet. I thought it was sprinkling at first and then realised it was water from the jet.

“Great sight”
Reviewed 25 July 2014

Worth seeing. It is the focal point of the lake and attracts most visitors to Lake Geneva. Lovely to see at night when it is all lit up
