Lausanne Youth Hostel
The city of Lausanne stands on a hill and has steep, narrow streets, so strong muscles are required, particularly for the uphill climb to the cathedral, the most important Gothic monument in Switzerland. Window-shop in the bric-a-brac and antique shops or take a breather in one of the numerous bistros and bars, or along the lovely promenade of the former fishing village of Ouchy, in the Musée de la Photographie, which is worth a visit, or at the Swiss Cinémathèque (with its picture archive of famous Europeans) or Olympic Museum (the only one in the world).
Hospitality in an idyllic location
The Lausanne Youth Hostel, with its simple, pleasant, welcoming atmosphere, lies in a park-land and lake-side setting and offers hospitality designed to suit the requirements of both individual travellers and groups, at budget-friendly prices. The Lausanne welcomes visitors of all ages. Parking spaces are available outside the hostel and in the car park so visitors won't have any problem parking.
