Once a sleepy fishing town, Le Port d'Ouchy today has become a popular lakeside resort. Stroll, rollerblade, or skateboard along the bench-lined waterfront to soak up the laid-back atmosphere and enjoy the picturesque scenery. 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.

  • 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.

  • Good parking offers space but very expensive. It is better to park a little further and pay less.

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.
