Fodor's Review

The direct descendant of a late-19th-century hydroelectric safety valve, Europe's tallest fountain shoots 132 gallons of water—the equivalent of four standard bathtubs—459 feet into the air every second at 125 mph (wind conditions permitting). The water is aerated by a special nozzle, making it white.
