If you're journeying from a different city, consider taking the train as your primary mode of transportation to reach Lausanne. Many cities are connected to Lausanne by a direct train: Geneva, Fribourg, Neuchâtel...
Once at Lausanne train station, take Bus n°21 Blécherette to the Beaulieu stop.

By public transportation 🚈

The easiest way to reach Beaulieu by public transportation is to take the metro (M2) to the "Riponne-Maurice Béjart" stop and then bus n°2.
The metro runs regularly throughout the day and takes approximately 10 minutes from Lausanne's city center.
Alternatively, you can take bus number 2, 3 or 21 to the "Beaulieu-Jomini" stop, which is located just a few minutes' walk from the venue. All timetables, as well as network maps and a route finder, are available via the tl mobile app or the tl website.

By boat 🚣

If you're looking for a scenic way to reach Beaulieu, the CGN boats are a great option. The boats depart regularly from various points along Lake Geneva and offer stunning views of the lake and the surrounding Alps. Once in Lausanne-Ouchy, take the M2 to the "Riponne-Maurice Béjart" stop and then bus n°2 or you can take bus number 2 towards Bellevaux and get off at the "Beaulieu-Jomini" stop.
