Travel guide N.48
When people think about Switzerland, they usually picture villages in the mountains. Lausanne isn’t strictly speaking located in the mountains but was initially built on three hills above one of the largest lakes in Europe: Lake Geneva (Lac Léman in French). When looking at a map, the city center looks quite compact and everything seems easily accessible within walking distance. But don’t be fooled! Remember the three hills that I mentioned? Visiting Lausanne means going up and down all the time, climbing a lot of stairs, taking steep streets, bridges or lifts. That’s part of the charm of the city, but it can also be exhausting. That’s why the first metro of Switzerland was built here. And it’s also why all of the places in this guide are at a reasonable walking distance from one of the 14 stations of the M2 line that connects the north to the south of the city. Let’s get back to the mountains: they’re never too far away. From the Sauvabelin hill to the lakeside in Ouchy, you’ll always get to see the majestic Alps standing in front of you on the other side of the lake.
