Water Fountain


This water fountain is the symbol of Geneva.  Originally it was just a security valve at the Coulouvrenière hydraulic factory. Later in 1891, it was trasferred to the "Rade". This water jet popularly known as " Jet d' Eau", shoots 500 litres of water to 150m at a speed of 200 km/hr. In the evening, eight projectors light this majestic fountain. The Lake of Geneva / Lac Léman with Alps background is magnificent. Wide range of cruises are available near this lake.
