Very smart and simple idea for making a fountain, which can be seen nearly from every place near the lake! But check the working times before you want to visit the attraction as it might have different working hours!

A single most recognisable point of Geneva. You will have the great view of it from anywhere on and near the lake but have a walk about to the end of the jetty to feel the mists on a hot day would be worth your while.

All it's worth is a quick look, and perhaps a picture. Nothing spectacular. But you see it from mostly everywhere around the lake.

This is the front attraction in Geneva lake . I was wondering if it's still open during our visit to Geneva in February but the whether was sunny and not cold and the view was amazing. You can see it even if you are far away from the lake.

I'm not sure what to say about this landmark. It is only a jet of water but it is fairly spectacular being clearly visible from the air on the approach to Geneva Airport. The jet comes from a 4inch nozzle and is propelled 460 feet above water level. Different weather conditions make it look very different on a day to... More

Nice to see, especially in the sunshine, need to be careful about how far you walk out on the pier in case you get wet!! Also a great point of reference when trying to navigate the city

I went to Geneva for a short vacation (3 nights) last Autumn. It's believed it is not the best time to visit Geneva; however, I found it nice. The "Jet d'Eau" is nice place in the Lake of Geneva. At night you cannot see it, but sometimes it becomes visible via colorful lighting.

It's nice to view the Jet d'Eau on a sunny day with the alps in the background. We enjoyed the walk along the promenade. You can walk out and under the jet if you are feeling grave!
