Le Jet d'eau, the iconic water fountain of Geneva, that shoots 500 liters of water per second at 200km/h, 140 meters into the air has a beautiful story to tell but did you know that its presence in Geneva is almost an accident? This icon can also be admired by catching one of the small ‘mouette’ boats (included in your free Geneva Transport Card or bus ticket) which shuttle passengers from one side of the lake to the other.
