“Classical view of Geneva”
Reviewed November 16, 2012 via mobile

This is the symbol of Geneva. A jet of water that sets of the lake, city and mountains. A wonderful city set off by a jet d'eau. Superb.

“Bigger than you think!”
Reviewed November 9, 2012

You WILL see this fountain when you visit Geneva. Its nice on a summers day... You can take a leisurely stroll down the lake with the Jet d'Eau by your side.
There are restaurants very close by.

“Impressive fountain”
Reviewed November 7, 2012

When the sun shines, you see a beautiful rainbow. Le Jet d'eau is one of the most well known landmarks of Genève, so an absolute must see when you visit the city.

“Shutdown for regular maintenance”
Reviewed November 6, 2012

According to the nearby signage, the fountain is shutdown from Nov. 5 - Nov 23. The silver lining is that you can walk all the way out along the breakwater without getting wet.

“Wet”
Reviewed November 3, 2012

More spectacular than in the photos as it’s constantly changing and dynamic in the real. We viewed it from the southern border of the harbour and on the day we flew in we could see it from afar from the left side of the plane.
