Must see. Best way is to get on to a boat with the swiss pass and watch this from a closer distance. The boat ride though will take a longer time

“Jet d'Eau Geneva”
Reviewed 30 July 2014

It's a pretty large fountain in the lake, worth a visit if you're here but not something to write home about! If you're feeling brave you can walk on the wall/pathway behind it and be prepared to get wet!

“Impressive - when it's on...”
Reviewed 28 July 2014

When we arrived in Geneva, the Jet d'Eau wasn't working. This was particularly disappointing, as the city has very little else to offer. But after a while, it was on again and made for an impressive sight on the lakefront. As it was a really hot day, it was refreshing to walk out along the jetty and cool off in the spray!

“The most prominant landmark to visit in Geneva - and it is free!”
Reviewed 27 July 2014

We saw the Jet d'Eau on a sunny July summer day on our stroll along the Lake Geneva. You can see this landmark from very far away. It is probably the most photographed landmark in Geneva. We walked all the way to the end of the jetty, be prepared to get soaked. Kind of refreshing on a hot summer day. Be sure to protect your camera and electronic equipment.

There are lots of beautiful boats that dot the lake near the Jet d'eau. Many white swans hang around the lake shore as well, making this area a postcard perfect place.

Completely free. What more can you ask in Geneva?

“Stunning”

A male icon made of female element, I've never seen something like this especially when I stand next to it, or way for it to rise at 10am
