Still a huge landmark for Geneva, and on a beautiful day a pleasant place to visit, and have a coffee just east of the jetty.

This is the very symbol of Geneve, you just have to go to see it closely, not only from far away. Very majestic and powerful - and beautiful.

Walk underneath the jet to have a wonderful shower in the summer heat. My kids were delighted and happy for the cool water!

Iconic landmark the jet is integral to visiting Geneva and walks to the jet through the gardens are lovely. Getting wet is not compulsory but likely!

This fountain in the middle of the lake is a must visit during a Geneva trip. You can take a boat and go past it. Even better, walk up the jetty leading to the base fountain and get drenched.

I mean, yes, it's like a giant geyser, but very fun to see from different parts of the city. As you get closer you realize how massive it is. I didn't think it would be nearly this cool, but take the time to approach it and see it up close if you can.

Although I visit Geneva frequently, I am always fascinated by this very cosmopolitan city with its' lake and the numerous shops and restaurants. My most recent trip was in June to see a group called One Direction at the Arena. A thouroughly enjoyable day with friends and an excellent way to finish the day, with great music

If you head down to Lake Geneva it's unlikely you will miss seeing this. It's one of Geneva's most famous landmarks. It's an impressive sight and its quite interesting to photograph at different times of the day to catch the light (and if you are lucky a rainbow).
