The neighbourhoods located between the Ouchy quays, by the lakeside, and the Lausanne train station invite you to a stroll. They unveil several green oases, elegant Belle Epoque dwellings bordering broad avenues and two internationally renowned museums. Since 2008, the rubber-tired m2 metro has replaced the “Ficelle” (the “String”), which was in 1877 one of the first metropolitan railways in the world.
Below the station, florists, bakers and a variety of small shops welcome commuters and passers-by. Fancy some chocolate? Durig, the long-standing chocolaterie, offers a refined home-made selection produced from the very best cocoa.
