Amazing! So beautiful You need to spend time walking around and enjoying it from different angle and different views. It is so unique when the weather is beautiful. Should take the time to walk under it :)

I first saw Jet d'Eau while walking down Rue des Alpes. Suddenly, I turned a corner and saw this huge installment in the lake. You don't have to walk all the way toward it... Even just looking at it from one of the bridges is impressive enough.

Very refreshing after a very hot day in the sun. Take care on the jetti as it can get slippery but very beautiful and relaxing. If the wind changes even slightly be prepared to get drenched. The summer heat made the water prefect and only took five minutes for my clothes to dry! Beautiful and interesting.

my hotel was quiet close the the jet d'eau and I visited it several times in the noon time and in the early morning. every time, it gave me different views and it was especially astonishing with the blue sky and the clear water.

Ok, I know it is a touristy thing to do, but for one I gave in. We had a few hours on the lake, and decided to swing by. Getting close you suddenly realize just how much power the jet produces. Sort of fun and fascinating to see it from all over the lake.

This is a huge water fountain at Geneva end of the lake. What more can i say. At least it was free to view! Otherwise i would not have gone just for this.

A clear icon for Geneva, it had to be visited, but my guide book made no mention that you can actually walk out to it so you can see it even closer! On a wall about two persons wide you can wander out and even past it, which a lot of kids were doing and did discover that this does... More

3 days in Geneva - bit stormy . They kept turning the Jet off :-( Did get to see it one a few time - went right up to the jet - got soaked - great way to cool down. Saw it from the plane when coming into land :-)

An impressive machinery and pumps are sending the water at 140m high.. it is a landmark use for the promotion of the city.
