EPFL campus, lake and mountains: a winning combo
Quite a symbol: the Starling Hotel Lausanne was born on the EPFL campus, a high place of study synonymous with excellence. EPFL is one of the most dynamic and cosmopolitan science and technology institutions in Europe and the campus is part of a dynamism driven by the booming west of Lausanne, a real economic hub.
The Rolex Learning Center and the SwissTech Convention Center are also “monuments” that are part of the Vaudois and Swiss heritage.
The hotel esplanade is the pedestrian extension of the campus. From the esplanade, a unique and panoramic view is offered to visitors, overlooking the lake and facing the emblematic peaks of the French and Valais Alps.
Saint Sulpice, a small town with charming airs with its historic center, adjoining the Lake Geneva coast, is a place to discover with its jetty and its small walks in the heart of quiet alleys.
Pushing a little further, 10 minutes by car, Morges looms large, a true historic place, with its castle, its medieval town center and its beautifully flowered parks, honoring, during the spring, the tulip festival.
