Reviewed December 11, 2012

If there is a landmark not to be missed this is it! Walk along the pier and go and get yourself wet!!! Feel the power of all that water gushing up and tumble down. Enjoy!

“Amazing during summer”
Reviewed December 11, 2012

best place to go in geneva (with your partner). Forget your camera and phone if you want to go on the small jetty going right under the "Jet d'eau", which is obviously very tempting when days are getting hot. Once soaked, you can dry and relax on the closest terrace with an icecream... very nice place, quite romantic by night, not far from the Flower CLock, offering a nice view of the "rade"

“Worth seeing”
Reviewed December 6, 2012

As the symbol of Geneva the fountain is worth seeing. It starts with Swiss efficiency dead on 10am. Take a boat trip to really get up close.

“Landmark... not much else”
Reviewed November 21, 2012

The Jet is THE landmark in Geneva, but it's not much to look at once you're there. Something to see as part of a visit to Geneva, but I wouldn't make a special trip for it.

“One of the best parts of Geneva!”
Reviewed November 20, 2012

Ok, so there's very little to complain about regarding Geneva. It's in SWITZERLAND, it's gorgeous, picturesque, there's very little crime etc. The one issue is that it is soooooo expensive! However, Jet d'Eau is a FREE water attraction in the middle of the city that brightens up everyone's day. The skyrocketing water can be seen from very far away & there's a little stone ledge that, if you're brave enough, allows you to walk far out into the lake and up close under the water "fountain". Definitely a wonderful experience to be had!!
