    Chateau d'Ouchy (I&V)

    Chateau d'Ouchy – the Ouchy Castle, was erected in 1170 with the purpose to protect the port. The first rebuilding of the castle occurred in the 13th century. Then, between 1888 and 1893, it was almost completely rebuilt and transformed into a hotel, to respond the rapid development of tourism in the area. Present day neo-Gothic style edifice was designed by the architect Francis Isoz, and the dungeon tower of the medieval castle is the only conserved and modernized part of it. The most recent reparations of Chateau d'Ouchy took part in 2007.

    Being the budget travelers – we have seen just the exterior of Chateau d'Ouchy.

    The Chateau d'Ouchy was initially a fortress first erected in 1170 and then rebuilt in the XIII-century, with the aim to protect the port. It was again almost completely rebuildt and transformed into a hotel in 1889, with an architectonical neogothic style. This four-star hotel still functions so far.
    If wanting to see the decoration and others from the interior... mmm, I guess you should register as a guest (around US$120-140 the room)

    Address: 2 Place du Port

    The Castle of Ouchy, transformed into a hotel, was built in 1889. It was actually built over an old castle and only kept the tower. it's located in the middle of Ouchy, the lakeshore side neighborhood of Lausanne and also has a very nice terrace with a beautiful view.
