This fountain in the heart of one of Switzerland’s major cities is one of the tallest fountains in the world, analytical water up to 140 meters high. Built in 1891, it is also
considered one of the symbols of the city of Geneva. The Jet d ’Eau fountain, icon of Geneva, is inescapable – emblazoned on every piece of tourist journalism and every book about the city, it’s the logo of the tourist office and Geneva’s prime photo-op. Even if you happen to visit off season when it’s switched off, you’ll be in no doubt what you’re missing.
