Half a Morning at Ouchy

Dear All,

1)

Need your advise if the below schedule is doable within 2.5 hours.

I have a half morning at Ouchy before catching the noon cruise to Chillon.

i) Metro from Bessieres to Lausanne Gare, then bus 1 to Dapples

ii) Hike the Cret de Montriond and explore the Place de Milan lake and Cantonal Botanical Gardens

iii) Metro to Ouchy. Walk along Chateau D'Ouchy, Beau Ridge,

Olympic Park and Elysee Park. Will not visit the museums.

iv) Walk along to Quai d'Ouchy to the Denantou park and see the

Haldimand Tower and animals

v) Return to Ouchy harbor

2) Also is the bus stop of Dapples already at the peak of the Mound or need to do some hiking to reach the top.

3) Where can the boat rides tickets be purchased besides online?

CGN's website is not very clear

Thanks so much.

Hello Hambagahle,

Thanks for your wonderful advice. Will decide whether to Sauvabelin or Evian... but would prefer a walk in the woods

Just keep in mind that the woods are Sauvabelin are not all that extensive...
