Jet d’eau is one of Geneva’s most famous symbols, and it is no wonder why. This incredible water jet epitomises the ambition, dynasmism and international renown of a respective city that always has high hopes for the future.
Like most great inventions, the Jet d’eau was actually created by accident, however in 1891, Geneva City Council decided to turn the water jet into a tourist attraction, raising the original beautiful water jet from 30m to an astonishing 140m. Colouring the water also brings a spectacular edge to the city’s symbol, which often takes centre stage at Genevan festivals and events.
