Toute la richesse de la culture locale

Le Jet D'eau

Quai Gustave Ador, Geneve, 1207

The lakeshore’s star attraction is the elegant water fountain, dazzling visitors as it shoots 140 metres into the sky. The fountain came into being by chance. In 1886, a hydraulic power station was built to deliver water under pressure from the Rhône to the city’s fountains, households and factories. One evening, pressure build-ups forced the engineers to install a special pressure relief valve. This marked the birth of the Jet d’Eau and became the landmark of Geneva.

Cour Saint-Pierre 6, Genève, GE 1204
