Nature in the heart of the city

As a green city, Lausanne is proud of its parks where inhabitants and visitors come to relax. The museum and the botanical gardens are lush places that are accessible free of charge.

Not far from there, the waterfront neighbourhood of Ouchy abounds in natural spaces on the shores of Lake Geneva. From the landing stages, Belle-Epoque boats of the company CGN take passengers on a cruise around the lake, the most popular destination being the terraced vineyards of Lavaux UNESCO.

To discover the secrets of the freshwater fauna and flora without even leaving the city, the aquarium-vivarium Aquatis invites you to a trip to the five continents.
