    A must-visit for all tourists in Lausanne. Walking alongside the lake for an hour leads to the beautiful Vineyards up in the hills. Stunning views on the French Alps.  more »

  • Prices a bit high, but good place to park without problems.
  • Port D'Ouchy itself is a magnificent place. We went on a Sunday-- so clean, serene, the views of Geneva Lake and nearby France are spectacular. There is also a park and a nice view of Chateau D'Ouchy from behind. Good for picnics.
  • Very nice place
  • Very well located, near the motorway exit and close to metro. The price for the day is reasonable and offers besides the ticket for public transport.

Where to stay in Lausanne

Elegant Lausanne is home to many luxury hotels for those looking to indulge. There is also a great number of mid-range options, a happy compromise compared to some of the pricey four-star accommodation. You'll also find plenty of guesthouses and bed and breakfasts in the area, though they are slightly removed from the idyllic lakefront. Hostels in the city are few and far between, so come prepared with a flexible budget.
