Lausanne

Overview

The Lake Geneva Region with its diverse scenery of palm trees on one side of the lake and snow-capped mountain peaks on the other, has attracted visitors since the 19th century. Vineyard terraces steeped along the lakeside, the glittering waters of Lake Geneva and the mild climate have given the lakeside resorts of Montreux, Lausanne and Vevey their collective name of ‘Swiss Riviera’. The cosmopolitan city of Geneva is home to international organisations, boutique shops and has retained the elegance of French-speaking Switzerland.
