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.

Iconic. It just adds character to the already spectacular Lake & it's location. There isn't a place like Geneva, it really has a feel even though it's actually a very boring City, full of offices of..... more »
Awesome. I will never stop loving this place! If fountain exist alone is more than enough, the other attractions exist their, the ambience, the nice surroundings and other things contribute to the beauty of place. In addition and when weather is nice, the fountain is superb when is playing at night or even when not during the day. I love the fountain and for me it will never be old.
One of the tourist place in Geneva, it's really nice especially during the evening time. I used to walk around the lake and it's amazing to see this beautiful fountain just in the middle of the city. I would suggest all of you to see this amazing fountain if you are visiting Geneva in near future. It's like pride for Geneva people.
