Ouchy - Lausanne

Ouchy is a commune, port, and popular lakeside resort near the city of Lausanne in Switzerland, located at the south of the city, at the edge of the Lake Léman (Lake Geneva).

 

Very popular with tourists for the views of nearby France (Évian-les-Bains, Thonon), Ouchy is also a favourite area for rollerskating (Lausanne is considered a capital) and for skateboarding.

 

Once a fishing Village, Ouchy was incorporated into the City of Lausanne in the mid-19th century to serve as a port on Lake Léman. The incredible views of the lake and the Alps, and the cooler air in summer have make Ouchy a popular place especially in the summer months. There is a major cluster of hotels and restaurants around the port.
