Estavayer-le-Lac, medieval city

Renowned as a leading centre for water sports, in particular wakeboarding, there are two sides to the historic medieval town of Estavayer-le-Lac - the young and the old.

Couvent des Dominicaines, Estavayer-le-Lac

The City of Roses. Carriage entrances and painted houses line up along very narrow streets. Reflecting the purity of the Gothic style, the arcades of Chenaux Castle and Saint Lawrence's Collegiate Church (14th century) dominate the city. Don't miss the Frog Museum, where stuffed batrachians replace human beings in everyday situations.

A cradle of civilisations

Visit the Roman Museum of Vallon, the lakeside village of Gletterens and the medieval town of Estavayer-le-Lac to discover the civilisations which have left their mark on this region.




Beach and watersports

Estavayer-le-Lac offers the best equipped watersports centre in Switzerland (especially for wakeboarding). The "Nouvelle Plage" (new beach) with its games area, restaurant and camping site welcomes families with open arms. Pedal-boats, windsurf boards and catamarans are available for hire. The unique water-ski tow is a must for the entire family and suitable for children who can swim (recommended age: 10).
