From your luxury hotel near Lausanne you can experience the diverse riches offered by Switzerland’s ‘fifth city’. With a medieval centre dominated by the Gothic cathedral, Lausanne is also a place of modern art, culture and entertainment.
Lakeside elegance, Gothic grandeur and 21st-century dynamism.
Things to do
Stroll along the shores of Lake Geneva to appreciate the diversity of Lausanne. Picturesque Ouchy is a delight and the former warehouse district is now an exciting urban centre filled with art galleries and chic boutiques. Back in the old heart of the city rises Note Dame, Switzerland’s finest cathedral.
It would be very easy to enjoy Lake Geneva purely from the cosseting surroundings of your luxury boutique hotel, but if you fancy going further, the opportunities are numerous. The sailing school at Ouchy offers courses on windsurfing, water skiing and sailing.
FOOD & WINE
Naturally your luxury hotel will offer superb fine dining, but Lausanne offers a wonderful mix of contemporary European food and wine – from hip relaxed cafes to highly exclusive restaurants.
If you fancy lunch somewhere special such as Café St Pierre, reserve in advance!
