Between Lake Geneva and Lausanne : Aquatis, the largest aquarium-vivarium hotel in Europe
Lausanne is an ideal destination for a city break between lake and mountains. Just 15 minutes from the heart of the city, Aquatis is a unique concept offering an interactive 3,500 m2 trail to raise visitors’ awareness of the preservation of freshwater species from the 5 continents. A hotel-restaurant next to the aquarium will seduce travellers passing through the canton of Vaud.
