“Wet experience”
Reviewed November 17, 2013

You can see the jet d'eau from everywhere you go.
The water fountain is -what do you expect- very wet when you walk (or run) under it.
You got certainly a wet pants when you want to pass it!

“Make sure it is on”
Reviewed November 12, 2013

How can you visit Geneva without visiting the iconic water jet?

Make sure to ask if this is a day when the water will be hurled upwards, as it is sometimes switched off. The jet is most impressive and enhances the beauty of the lake.

“Odd tourist attraction - but beautiful lake!”
Reviewed November 8, 2013

Not sure why a large jet of water is an attraction but it did add an interesting element to the lakeside view - nice photo ops. You could see a rainbow quite often in the spray which was nice. They wouldn't turn it on if it was too windy.

“Nice view and attraction”
Reviewed November 3, 2013

Nice place, landmark. Nothing out of the world tough. It is however located near all the rest of the attractions etc so not a bad place to go to and base the rest of your trip around. 5 Minutes walk from the main train station as well which makes it very convenient.
