parking near Lausanne harbour

A friend is coming over by boat from Evian and I'll meet her at the Port on Friday. Any idea of the best and not too expensive car-park? Thanks, very grateful for any advice from you Lausanners.

Or you could park near a Metro station, and take the train.

If you don't mind a 5 min walk, I think there are some 3 hr parking spots just down in front of the Olympic museum, on the Pully side of Ouchy. Otherwise the underground parking would be the best.

Thanks all - I suppose Ouchy harbour will be easiest, even if a bit expensive!

Re: parking near Lausanne harbour

I actually parked just before the port- part of the car park is Park and Ride, but the other half was open to all and only

6CHF for the whole day! Hurray. Great when you can find a bargain in CH.

Walked 5 mins to port, welcomed friend from boat and took the Metro up to the old town. Fabulous day, very warm, fab views of the Alps, great lunch and found a great second-hand book shop with an English section at the bottom of the wooden stairs from Cathedral.
