Lausanne, Switzerland, is looking forward to hosting
its 15th International FIVB Beach Volley tournament this year from August 4th - August 8th.

Apart from the traditional Men’s Satellite, Lausanne will be organizing for the first time a Women’s Satellite tournament as well.

Lausanne, Olympic Capital
Lausanne stands above Lake Geneva (the biggest lake in central Europe) and spreads among the vineyards, fir forests and the rolling countryside. Smallest of Switzerland's biggest towns in the heart of Europe, Lausanne is a town of human proportions with a cordial atmosphere. It offers all the services of a tertiary capital, big & successful enterprises and especially a vast selection of hotels of all categories with a total capacity of over 5'000 beds.

This small European metropolis was needed to host the Headquarters of the Olympic Movement. Apart from the head office of the IOC, there is also the famous Olympic Museum, as well as the head office of 17 international sports federations, including the International Volleyball Federation.

Easy access
Lausanne is easy to reach from anywhere – by road (the A1/E25 an A9/E27 motorways), by railway (both the Swiss Federal Railway network and the TGV Paris-Milan line) or by plane (just 60 km from Geneva-Cointrin International Airport).

A city with a mild climate
Average annual temperature 14° C / 57° F
Average temperature in summer 24° C / 75°F
