Full of restaurants, bars, shops and clubs, Le Flon is the most up-to-the-minute part of Lausanne, with its contemporary architecture and sociable spaces gradually replacing the industrial character of this part of the city.
Le Flon is the entertainment and recreational centre of Lausanne, attracting both residents and visitors. The fashionable shops and boutiques are ideal for an afternoon’s shopping and regular free events are held in the central square, like the beach in the summer and the skating rink in the winter. The heart of Lausanne’s nightlife, Le Flon has a host of popular restaurants, lively bars and buzzing nightclubs. A bowling alley has recently joined the cinema on the list of recreational activities for the whole family.
Constantly improved and enhanced, Le Flon is a model of contemporary urban architecture, characterised by its large glass surfaces and modern sculptures alongside the remaining vestiges of its industrial past.
