Our guides show you their city. Come with us on an interesting and unforgettable tour through Lausanne with the innovative Segway!
Our route begins at the Hotel Le Château d’Ouchy and first takes us along the Quai d’Ouchy with its stunning flower arrangements, to the Haldimand Tower, built in 1823 as imitation romantic ruins. We climb gently along the back path of the Park du Denantou via la Croix d’Ouchy and past the metro station Delices to the Hill la Cité. We cross the railway tracks in the direction of Esplanade de Montbenon, where the Casino and the imposing Justice Palace can be admired. From this location we have an impressive view over Lake Geneva.
As we continue we reach the new entertainment district of Le Flon and drive to the Notre Dame Cathedral, where the call of the watchers has been ringing out once an hour, every night for the last 600 years. Following this we reach the Castle St Maire, the seat of the Vaud government, and the highest point on our route.
The tour continues through the lively Place de la Riponne with the Cantonal Museum of Fine Arts and over the Place and Pont Chauderon. We travel through a series of picturesque alleyways before reaching the banks of the lake in Vidy. After a visit to the Port de Vidy and the Cantonal Esplanade, the location of Expo 64, we drive along the Avenue de Rhodanie to our starting point, where the tour ends after 2.5 hours.
