Lausanne is the capital of the heart and the Olympic movement in French-speaking Switzerland. Culture and enjoyment, along with a fantastic view of the lake, await you here.
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.
From the main station, take the metro (M2) in the direction to Ouchy-Olympique until Délices stop, then bus No. 25 towards "Chavannes Glycines", to the "Bois de Vaux" stop. From here, it is a 2-minute walk to the youth hostel.
Genève-Cointrin airport is 45 minutes away by train.
Leave the motorway at the "Lausanne South" exit and continue to the "Maladière" roundabout. From here, on the cantonal road towards Geneva, turning left after 300 meters. The youth hostel has a limited number of chargeable car parking spaces.
The youth hostel has two chargeable, wheelchair-accessible car parking spaces. We will be pleased to make the disabled car parking space available free of charge for holders of an official blue disabled person’s parking permit.
