Lausanne lumières

Lausanne Festival of Lights

Nov 24, 2020 - Dec 24, 2020
Lausanne - Fête et Festival

From November to the end of December, Lausanne Lumières is a fantastic way to (re)discover the streets of the city centre and the old town by night. This original artistic event is free and features luminous works created by fifteen or so contemporary artists.

For over a month from November to the end of December, Lausanne is brightly illuminated by the contemporary works of about fifteen artists whose sculptures aren’t made of stone but light! Follow the path of sculptures through the streets of the city centre and the old town and soak up the mystical atmosphere of the Olympic capital. It’s free and totally unique!

Showcasing bold and poetic artworks, Lausanne Lumières is always a surprising addition to the festive season offering an artistic and modern slant to the traditional Christmas celebrations. For three exceptional evenings, when the shops stay open late, Lausanne Lumières shines a refreshing light on your Christmas shopping.
