  • Lovely area to walk and relax with a cool drink to watch the world go by. There are well kept gardens, fountains and a play area.  more »
  • Beautiful picturesque place with views of the mountains. Would love to come and visit in the summer when the outdoor pools are open where the beach is. Nice little cafes and a park for the children.  more »
  • The docks, playground, countless glaciers, Lake. It is a pure pleasure to each warm spell here to enjoy the splendor of the Lake and the mood of the people. A true must-see on Lausanne for me, all my friends whether it is local or not know and love! Plus it's easily accessible by metro, so there is no excuse!

  • 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.

  • Never full parking and places are quite wide and long. Prices are a little high, but less expensive than the Center. Preferred parking and metro if you stay long in Lausanne
