The terraced vineyards of Lavaux site unfold above Lake Geneva for some 14 kilometres, forming a real link between Lausanne and Vevey-Montreux.

The largest freshwater lake in Europe – and certainly the most romantic, having inspired countless artists – captivates the eye. Lending itself as much to barbecues on the beach as dinners on board the steamships that crisscross its waters, it offers every possible aquatic pleasure: sailing, waterskiing, wakeboarding, pedalos.
Ouchy represents one of the favourite Sunday strolls for Lausanne citizens and passing visitors. Walkers, cyclists and skaters share the tree-lined, flower-bedecked walkways.
