Historically a healing centre for sufferers of tuberculosis, today's Leysin is a modern tourist and sports resort, aimed at both winter and summer tourism. The slopes and Alps of Aï and Mayen are accessible by several mountain railways and ski-lifts. On the top of the Berneuse is the modern panorama Kuklos. The area around the Tour d'Aï, Tour de Mayen and Tour de Famelon is home to three mountain lakes and is therefor one of the most popular hiking destinations in Switzerland.
In addition, there are three international hotel management schools in Leysin. During the summer, various organisations organise a variety of summer camps - ranging from sports and out-door adventures, to languages and academic learning. Throughout the year, these multi-cultural institutions contribute to the diverse life of the resort.
