About The Jet D Eau, Geneva

The Jet d’Eau is certainly what most people would identify Geneva tourism with. It is one of the most popular and most fascinating things to see in the city. The fountain is located on the Lake Geneva where it empties into the Rhone River.

This huge jet of water has been gracing the city since 1886 but it wasn’t always a fountain. Originally built as a valve to relieve water pressure, it was only later that it became such a popular landmark. Although it is only operated in the day for most of the year, if you are visiting in spring you are in for a real treat when they light the fountain and the surrounding area up.

Interestingly it can be seen from almost anywhere in the city due to the height of 140 meters that the water reaches. However, do not go too close to this one since you are in danger of getting pretty drenched due to its massive flow.

The Jet d’Eau fountain has the maximum height of 140 meters with the velocity of 200 Km/h. The pump rate is about 500 liters per second. The total power of both the pumps is 1000kW. Also, visit the popular attractions in the city by following Geneva itinerary 1 day.

  • A trademark of Geneva, this place is worth a visit when the fountain is on. The jet fountain rises so high it can be seen from the airplanes too just before landing. Boat rides near the lake take you near the fountain to experience and amazing view of this man made beauty.

  • This is probably the only place to go to while in geneva The lake side is beautiful and the walk alongside the lake and towards the jardin botanique is to be made

  • A cannon shooting water at 125mph with great views of the lake, city, and mountains. Don't forget to visit and admire this beautiful Swiss landscape.

  • Landmark & the largest fountain of Geneva. The night view is Awesome. Jet d'Eau is one of the tallest fountain in the world. ... Soon after being finished, the fountain became the symbol of strength, ambition and vitality of Geneva and Switzerland. Its strong engines pump 500 liters of water per second to the height of 140 meters

  • You can say it as symbol of Geneva. You must be there to take photographs. Best place during summer.
