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.
