1. Geneva


There are so many ways to discover Geneva ; the Geneva Pass is one of them. You can also enjoy great guided tours of Geneva, a boat trip to the Chillon Castle but please do not miss the "Water Jet"!


The history of this fountain is incredible. When the population of Geneva grew in the early 20th century, its water requirements also grew, and a hydraulic plant was commissioned. Everything worked well except one evening when workers left the factory: a strong pressure caused serious damages. A safety valve was installed to evacuate the high pressure via a jet of water. The "Water Jet" of Geneva was born.
