Lausanne Jeunotel


The Grand Tour of Switzerland, which brings together the highlights of Switzerland in one journey, naturally stops in Lausanne. This dynamic city, built on three hills, nestles up against the vineyards of Lavaux and majestically overlooks the shimmering expanse of Lake Geneva. Its medieval city centre, with its narrow alleyways and early Gothic cathedral, is sure to inspire guests just as much as the waterside promenade and the large parks in the port district of Ouchy. As the beacon of the Olympic movement, Lausanne is home to the interactive Olympic Museum. You can reach all of these attractions conveniently by public transport from the Jeunotel, which guarantees relaxation right on the lake shore thanks to its inner courtyards.
