Discover the regional and Olympic capital (C)


With artisan ice cream vendors, paddle wheel boats and prestigious hotels, Lausanne-Ouchy on the shores of Lake Geneva is the best possible way to enter the regional capital. With plentiful parking and the only metro in Switzerland, it’s easy for visitors to relax and explore the city.

Before arriving in Lausanne itself, the town of Lutry attracts many visitors with its lakeside location, mediaeval streets and Lavaux wines. From here, it’s only a few kilometres along Lake Geneva to Lausanne, the Olympic capital and headquarters of the IOC with a fascinating museum dedicated to this global sporting movement.

Called Ouchy, the lakeside area of Lausanne has a Mediterranean feel. Here, leave the car behind for a stroll along the lakeside promenade or take the metro to the city centre to enjoy the city’s museums and shops or explore the historic centre and famous gothic cathedral. On the way out of Lausanne, camper van owners can enjoy a stay at the fabulous Vidy campsite, while those heading off for new pastures drive past the city’s famous university (EPFL) and its futuristic building, the Rolex Learning Center.
