The Geneva Water Fountain, Geneva

(4.1/5 based on 3,600+ reviews on the web)
A standout among the city's modern landmarks, the monumental The Geneva Water Fountain has served as one of the city's crowning symbols for over six decades. One of the largest fountains in the world, the structure pumps about 500 l (130 gal) of water each second, its misty plumes reaching a height of over 140 m (450 ft). Most sightseers choose to appreciate the structure from a distance, but if you do not mind a little spray on your clothes, you can inspect it at close range by standing on a pier, accessible from the left bank of the lake. Choose to start, finish, or center your holiday on a trip to The Geneva Water Fountain by using our Geneva tour planner.

  • The most beautiful jet fountain in the world! On a sunny day, everything about this view looks perfect. An iconic part of this peaceful city.
  • Most photographed attraction in Geneva. It's nice, but overrated. I did get some lovely snaps of the water spray and light creating a rainbow in front of the lighthouse.
  • Pure and utter beauitful looking waterfall or waterjet
  • Went for fountain opening. What a gorgeous place! You can spot this fountain from anywhere in the city. Fun to run under it - prepare to get soaked.
  • Magnificent! It doesn't look so big, but if you walk to close to it, you will be impressed 100%!!! So I advice you to do that
