Nyon tourist information & hotel reservations.
We warmly welcome you to visit Nyon and wish you a wonderful vacation.
Nyon is located 22 kilometers east of Geneva and 27 kilometers south-west of Lausanne. It is a very quiet and peaceful place near Lake Geneva with flowers decorating the quays. The place was even used by Julius Caesar for housing his soldiers. Another fame of Nyon is its porcelain, which became famous between 1781 and 1813.
Nyon Tourist Attractions and Holidays
If you are a bit of a thrill seeker you can rent a bike from the train station in Nyon and go to Céligny – between Coppet and Nyon. The trip to Coppet is 10 kilometers longer and you can go there too. But Céligny is really worth visiting – a picturesque village on the lake’s shore. The village offers some perfect lawns for sunbathing in front of the lake and it is perhaps the most suitable part of the lake for swimming. Richard Burton spent his last years there and loved the place.
Nyon is connected directly by train to Geneva and Lausanne. The trains from both cities are quite often.
If you use a car you can reach Nyon from Geneva (east) and Lausanne (west) by taking N1.
The Nyon Tourist Information Office, Viollier 7, is open from May till September during the whole week.
