    I like to go walking and jogging around the Lake. In winter, the Lake is often frozen and may be skating. There are plenty of animals (mini zoo) on the edge of the Lake, which will delight young and old. The restaurant of the Lake is also very good. A couple, family or friends!

    The setting is beautiful and relaxing. It is a small lake (with signs and duck) in nature (forest) but surrounded by the city. The areas around the Lake have been all redone recently. It's much more clean and welcoming than before. For me, the biggest positive point is the large square of the restaurant nearby wooden games. Small (2 years) as the largest (9 years) find their account on this site (zip, slide, turn,...) On the other hand, damage that can no longer venture out on the Lake in a boat to paddle. But the ducks and signs certainly say us thank you.

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.
