About The Geneva Water Fountain (Jet d'Eau)

Geneva’s most treasured tourist spot is the Geneva Water Fountain, better known as the Jet d’Eau, one of the tallest fountains in the world. The Geneva Water Fountain was not originally designed to be a tourist attraction, though. Its creation as a hydraulic plant during the 19th century was to meet the city’s rapidly growing water requirements.

It was observed that due to the shutting of the valves, the water pressure increased dangerously and risked serious damage to the turbines. A valve was created to ensure the release of said pressure, eventually leading to the birth of this unmissable wonder!

Highlights:
This iconic creation is one of the first things you’ll notice from your plane as you fly into the Geneva airport. It is also visible from countless other vantage spots in the city, including the peak of Salève Mountain. The fountain sprays water about 140 meters into the air, making it one of the most prominent features on the face of the city.
