THE landmark in Geneva!!!

Beautiful complement to the Geneva waterfront and the one sure fire way to find your way when lost in Geneva. Impressive height, beautiful as a backdrop for selfies ;-).

A nice fountain... But that's just it... It's a nice fountain. Once you've seen it & taken a snap or two you're onto the next sight.

It's a fountain type thing in a lake: it's a nice feature but it's not something to travel to GVA for. Go for the cheese fondue in stead...

Check out the jet d eau both from land as well as from the free boat taxis. It is great on a cloudy day but even nicer on a sunny day. Great pictures to send to family.

For supposedly one of the best attractions in Geneva it was pretty average. Worth seeing but don't expect to spend a lot of time there.

A fountain in the middle of a lake makes for a spectacular view. Having seen it once, twice or thrice, most people drive by or walk by without even noticing that it exists! The Eiffel Tower of Geneva.

Famous landmark and short walk round the lake to get close. Lots of people taking pictures of it to make it look like it is coming out of their mouths! :)

A real force of water that is very impressive - so much higher than I expected. Not a great deal to it but worth a look definitely!
