Swiss San Francisco

Lausanne contains several distinct neighborhoods, each offering a different side of the French-speaking Swiss town. The city, well-known for its thriving arts scene, features a large range of museums centered on varied (and sometimes obscure) themes. Lausanne also attracts a large number of visitors to the water activities that thrive thanks to its location on Lake Geneva. Ville Marché, Lausanne's old town area, features outdoor markets, while Cité is home to many of the city's historical buildings. Ouchy, once a lakeside village, provides a place to walk along the water, and Flon is a former industrial area-turned-trendy-urban-strip filled with hip boutiques, restaurants, and art galleries. Arrange all the small, but important details of your Lausanne trip itinerary using our Switzerland vacation builder.

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.
