You can walk out to the pier to get close to the Jet. It was a great thing to do on a hot day. We took some fun pictures here.

Amazing jet of water 460ft tall on the lack where Lac Leman empties into the Rhone. You can take a water taxi to visit it. If you walk almost to the end of the pier you will get very wet.

This is a huge fountain, seen from all over Geneva. But the fountain takes a break after operating for sometime. Great backdrop for a picture.

An amazing attraction that should not be missed in Geneva. First day we went was cloudy and couldn's see the jet top clearly. Second day was a sunny day and the jet was amazing. Simply beautiful.

The whole is bigger than the sum of its parts, and this applies to the lake Geneva's water jet too. It's a beautiful component of the landscape. But to assess it for itself, clearly there are more awesome fountains in other parts of the world....More
