Lausanne Mini Guide

Lausanne is a city situated on the northern shores of Lake Geneva. It is 62 km from Geneva and in the French speaking part of Switzerland. From Europe and further afield you are most likely to fly into Geneva Airport and from there you can collect a pre-booked rental car from Rhino. From Italy and France it is easy to drive there, using the A1 and A9 motorways.

Lausanne is a great centre for exploring the region around Lake Geneva, called Lac Leman in French. The city is built on the slopes of the Swiss plateau and there is over 1,500 feet difference in height between the lakeside and the highest point of Lausanne. If you are not very fit or looking for a more relaxing way of getting around, hiring a car in Lausanne is a sensible choice for exploring the city.
