Nature, historic town, contemporary architecture, and exceptional surroundings: the Olympic Capital is a model of the art of living and of cultural events.

No need to wear out your shoes to visit the town and its region. A dense public transport network gives you the freedom to go from the lakeside to the trendy neighbourhoods within minutes. Considered as one of the greenest towns in Europe, Lausanne gives preference to soft mobility: bikes are available for free, so hikers can explore the Lavaux vineyard trails. As one of the leading gastronomic regions throughout the world, Lausanne is the home of plenty of star-studded chefs, tables d’hôte and typical inns. Culinary… and cultural diversity: over twenty museums, theatres, concerts and the Lausanne Béjart Ballet The town is the stage of permanent activities, for example the event “Lausanne Estivale” offering 400 free-of-charge shows every year.
