The Dubai Fountain

One of the most unique and iconic attractions of Downtown Dubai, The Dubai Fountain is a must-see for holidaymakers visiting the city. Bursting into life every lunchtime and evening, the fountain performs stunningly choreographed displays for visitors and locals to enjoy.

Set in the centre of the 30-acre Burj Khalifa Lake in the heart of the exclusive Downtown Dubai development, The Dubai Fountain is one of the largest choreographed fountain systems in the world and an iconic city landmark.

Measuring around 275m in length and able to shoot water up to five storeys into the air, the fountain is an incredible example of engineering and the centrepiece of the Downtown Dubai development.

Designed by the same company that was behind the stunning fountains at the Bellagio Hotel in Las Vegas, The Dubai Fountain boasts the same level of attention to detail and innovation as its American counterpart.

Officially opened in May 2009, The Dubai Fountain has been entertaining crowds in Downtown Dubai ever since. With multiple performances every lunchtime and every evening, it’s easy for holidaymakers visiting the city to take in a show during their stay.

To make The Dubai Fountain evening more spectacular, choreographed displays are set to music, with a selection of classical, Arabian and contemporary pieces performed daily. Evening performances are also accompanied by fantastic light shows, making a trip to The Dubai Fountain a great way to start or end an unforgettable evening out in the Middle East.

As The Dubai Fountain is located within the iconic Downtown Dubai development, it’s easy to squeeze a trip to the attraction into a day out in the city. Other important landmarks in the development include the titanic Burj Khalifa and the colossal Dubai Mall, both of which are well worth a visit during your time in the city.

As well as admiring the fountain from the walkways and promenades that surround it, visitors to the attraction can also explore the attraction from the water, with regular boat trips taking holidaymakers across the lake and into the heart of this stunning manmade waterway.

A must-see for visitors staying in Dubai as well as locals who want to experience the best their city has to offer, a trip to The Dubai Fountain is sure to be one of the most unforgettable parts of your trip to the Middle East.
