The Geneva Water Fountain, Geneva

4.2
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.

  • Do not miss the lake, the walk in the boats, can have a more direct view of the stream. It's nice to have lunch with that view on the edge of the lake.

  • It is certainly the iconic image of Geneva, however, seeing it once is enough. Geneva has a beautiful landscape, with mountains and, in my opinion, the prettiest, Old City, the Chair, OK... A day in the city is enough walk

  • This is the major tourist scene in Geneva that u must see and visit. It is located in Geneva lake where u can see it from everywhere. Also you can go too close to it , but there are some water splash that will make your clothes wet. Definitely it's the best scene in Geneva with the lake . U should visit this giant fountain in the morning and the night .
  • It's a big fountain on lake Geneva, interesting thing is the motor that powers this is an absolute beast. Pushing water up to that level in such force requires some serious house power. Enough about engineer stuff, it's an absolute Marvelous place to be in the evenings. Chilled beer by the side, music playing on your boom box, friends around you, the view, makes my kinda perfect evening. Protip, trip to see the sun set, it's magical.
