It’s one of those you kind of “have to do’s” and it’s impossible to miss. There are several ways to get closer to it. Enjoy walking around the harbor!

Lac Leman (a.k.a. lake Geneva) is a delight and a highlight of a visit to Geneva, but I somehow can’t get excited about the Jet d’Eau itself. This tall fountain spray of water is hardly unique — similar ones I’ve seen from Bruma Lake in...More

It has been several years since I have seen this beautiful site. I love Switzerland very much and feel calm and peaceful in this area. It was a delight after visiting all the other European cities with tons of tourists and crowds.

To be honest, it’s was nice to see but then that’s about it. Not a wow factor for me but it’s something u need to see in Geneva right? Once you’ve seen it and taken a few pictures you move on to the next attraction.

Really, that's it. It looks spectacular and can be seen from many locations around Geneva. You can walk out along the pier and get quite close to this huge jet of water. Great photo opportunities.

An impressive feature that you can see from most part of town. Wander down to the foot of the water spout and check out the sheer size of it. The surrounding water from on the lake is very nice and relaxing with plenty of seating...More

Everyone said it was the only thing to do in Geneva but I didn't find that to be the case. The tour around the Jet is fun and it's beautiful to look at but there's so much more this city has to offer.

Always nice to sit and have a coffee or beer and watch this. Even when the wind turns so does the jet, and everyone gets soaking wet from standing very close. Worth a look. Recommend a Mont Blanc beer to watch the comic relief.

It’s such a Geneva landmark! You really can’t or shouldn’t miss it. It’s a short walk from Old Geneva.

Yes, only closed in high wind to avoid spray drift. 💨💦
