Hello! Can you tell me what's the best place to park the car for an afternoon to know the higlights of Lausanne?
If you want to see the old town then park at the Ripponne. It is a large underground parking garage. Walk across the square - Place de la Ripponne - and look up - follow your nose up to the cathedral. See this for a first timer's guide to Lausanne:
Driving in Lausanne is not easy as the roads are on various different levels. If you have a GPS you should be OK.
If you want to see the lakefront you will need to get your car and follow signs for Ouchy. Park at the underground parking lot at the place de la Navigation and walk from there. OR park at Ouchy in the morning and get a day ticket on the métro. Take the Métro to la Ripponne and then eventually back down to Ouchy.Edited: 25 March 2017, 08:41
