  • Built in 1901, the docks connect old port (1793) to the Tower Haldimand (1823), which once stood on an island, as the castle of Ouchy (12th century). Foot, lovers, bike, convertible, family, coach, rollers, solo or with friends, the piers of Ouchy see scroll the entire population of Lausanne and very many tourists. Along their kilometer are not less of three major parks in Lausanne: the Elysée Palace; the Olympic Park; the Denantou, but also, the rose garden in the place of General Guisan which presents more than 130 kinds of different roses.

  • Amazing view. Always something happening there in the summers (music etc), large choice of restaurants.
  • 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.
  • Wonderful place
