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.

  • A great option for evening out. This place is lined with restaurants and luxury shops. Sit by the lake enjoy the view. There are also some rides for small kids. Parking can be tricky so plan ahead and wear walking shoes :)
  • A great landmark! The fountain provides a lot of great photo opportunities. Its a great place to take your family for a great experience and great family photos! Check out the pier nearby to feed the geese and get some Gelato and put your feet in the water. If you are in Geneva, this is a must see spot! It is also great to take pictures if you are passing by it on a boat on the lake.
