Create an itinerary including The Geneva Water Fountain
A standout among the city's modern landmarks, the monumental The Geneva Water Fountain has served as one of the city's crowning symbols for over six decades. One of the largest fountains in the world, the structure pumps about 500 l (130 gal) of water each second, its misty plumes reaching a height of over 140 m (450 ft). Most sightseers choose to appreciate the structure from a distance, but if you do not mind a little spray on your clothes, you can inspect it at close range by standing on a pier, accessible from the left bank of the lake.

  • We were fortunate to see the Jet'deau when it was actually running. It was under maintenance a couple of days after. A beautiful site!

  • Breathtaking, spectacular, incredible! You can view this magnificent jet from various parts of the city, and it’s worth getting up close and personal. Try to catch it in the daytime and at night.

  • True force, and when nature comes in - beyond description.
  • It was a beautiful day, so the fountain looked amazing against the Geneva city backdrop. Snow capped mountains added to the drama. Absolutely worth a visit. If the weather is fine, consider taking a picnic and enjoy the views from one of the many benches lining the road adjacent to the lake (don't forget to use the bins provided). 🙂
