As well as views of the Alps, you can spot nearby France and even take a short boat trip to the French town of Evian-les-Bains. Grab an ice cream or tuck into a three-course meal at one of the charming restaurants. Kids can make use of a much-loved playground. Make sure to bring your passport if you do intend to visit France.

  • Absolutely beautiful, a little piece of heaven in Lausanne - really, one feels as if the sea and the mountains come together here. 
  • Very nice ride along the Lake, it's quiet and relaxing. Feel free to take a beautiful boat which has just been renovated and that will take you to beautiful in Montreux Christmas market in 1 hour, this boat is in ITALY. Along the harbour you also have a play area for children and 2 giant chess.
