A must-see - The Geneva Water Fountain (Jet d'Eau de Genève)

See the harbour's star attraction!
The Jet d'Eau and its millions of air bubbles will blow you away!

The magnificent water jet is 140 metres high, with 500 litres of water passing through it per second at a speed of 200 km per hour! Used initially for distributing the Rhône's propelling force to the city's craftspeople, it became the Jet d'Eau when the workshops required an additional flow. Since 1981 it has graced the centre of Geneva's harbour, and is the must-see tourist attraction!
