And for once in Geneva it was free !! :) you don't come across that much there. I am glad I saw it when I did, I went to the top of the Cathedral and for some reason the Jet wasn't on, so I am lucky to have seen it

Jet d'Eau is indeed an iconic spot in Geneve...guarantee stealing your attention while you are strolling around Lac Leman or Lake Geneve, you can see it from Bain du Paquis or from the Rive side..or from Pont du Mont-Blanc, the bridge taking you to Molard...

I usually stroll around the lake during summer...taking pictures, eating ice cream...

If you have enough time, get on the boat and take a short trip surrounding the lake and getting near the Jet d'Eau...there are several agencies that can help you with the tour..

During Fete de Geneve, usually in summer, we have fireworks around the lake and Jet d'Eau as well...very pretty...

But be careful with PICKPOCKETS..they are almost everywhere and they are getting smarter and smarter, especially during summer...Make sure you are aware of your surroundings, be careful with strangers suddenly talking to you, those riding a bike fast heading to you and those offering help out of the blue. Pay extra attention while you are at intersection, about to cross the street, busy taking pictures, or taking care of your kids ...I have seen myself how those people operate...very sleek ...and fast....so better be careful with your valuable belongings..Hope it won't stop you from enjoying Geneve, particularly Jet d'Eau...

It is not easy to park close the Lake, so look for a parking lot - I recommend Montblanc parking (very well located and unbelievable inexpensive). Climb the stairs and you will see the iconic Jet D'Eau, the most famous Geneva's attraction. In the middle of the lake you will see the giant water jet. Enjoy the views of the mountains close to the park and walk a little bit in the Jardin Anglais, feeling the charm and the elegance of this beautiful city. At walking distance there are the pedestrians streets, plenty with chocolate shops, bars and restaurants.

This is no poxy fountain! It looks cool from a distance, but wait till you get right up close. If the sun is shining with clouds in the distance you can get your own personal rainbows, great for photo opportunities.
