The Jet Stream is certainly eye catching, your eyes are drawn to it whether you are on the lake. Catch a ferry across the lake for a closer view or walk right up to it. When I first visited Geneva you could walk right up to the base of the Jet Stream, but it was a dodgy walk. When I... More

The jet is so impressive to watch if you ubderstand the physics behind it. At night it is also lighted and well seen. If you are staying in a hotel make sure to use the public transport which includes the boat.

Indeed astonishing the first time you see it. When you get used to is just a feature of the place and you fail it even to notice. Nice to have a stroll under it and be sprayed by the tiny water drops.

Created for technical reasons, the famous water spout has become the most recognisable landmark of Geneva. Celebrating its 125th birthday, it's graceful lines adorn the lakeside views of the city. It is especially beautiful when lit at night, with a backdrop of the colourful (but elegant) neon signs on some of the buildings shining in the lake. Must see ...... More

It's water shot high into the sky. Don't go out of your way to see it. If you are near the lakeshore, you will see it if it is on that day. They will shut it off on windy days.

It looks as impressive as in the photos and worth seeing from close by. I was surprised you can get so close to it and even go under it if you don't mind getting soaked.

The Jet D'Eau is the most famous attraction of Geneva, but there are other more interesting places to visit

I'd forgotten about this landmark and it was a glorious surprise. Evocative of so many movie scenes and easy to walk round the lake to get a closer view but be warned it can just stop for no apparent reason.

Over all those years Geneva would not be the same without the Jet d'Eau on Geneva Lake. Whatever your photographs angles, the water jet will always be in the picture. Nearest to the fountain you will feel the pressure of the jet - very impressive.
