Ouchy è un bel posto per rilassarsi insieme a tutta la famiglia. Sguazzare vicino all'acqua della fontana, guardare le barche che lasciano il porto o leggersi un libro lungo le banchine in ombra. Tutti i giorni ci sono tour per attraversare il lago con la barca fino a Evian e merita una visita il Museo Olimpico, dove si possono scoprire i suoi bei giardini. La bella vista del lago di Ginevra e delle montagne Chablais lo rendono perfetto per una gita domenicale ma ancora meglio è andarci in skate.
Le Flon is a district in central Lausanne that was transformed from a post-war warehouse district into a shopping and entertainment hotspot. The district, which is named after a river that once flowed through the valley that Lausanne sits on, was rehabilitated beginning in the late 1990s after decades of economic downturns. During the rehabilitation, many old buildings were renovated, and a few iconic structures were built. These include some administrative buildings, a seven-screen multiplex movie theater, and new pubs and restaurants. Le Flon has the unusual distinction of having an award-winning parking lot, which won a design prize given by the European Parking Association. The Voie du Chariot, along which many of the districts shop lie, is also home to a fountain that recalls the Flon.
