Unmissable events in Lausanne at the start of the school year
Lausanne: this Autumn's perfect destination for a cultural weekend break
Lausanne – Switzerland’s majestic Olympic Capital – found on the glistening waters of Lake Geneva, is the perfect place for a culturally-rich city break; at any time of year. This autumn is no exception, bringing with it a variety of cultural events, expressionist exhibitions and authentic experiences.
Some of autumn’s highlights include:
Carte blanche à constance Guisset
14.09.2016 - 15.01.2016
The carte blanche given by mudac to the industrial designer Constance Guisset will be an ode to colour in which she recreates two symmetrical apartments, furnished in an almost identical way, one in grey and black, the other in colour. Playing on surprise, this installation is intended to show that colour is one of the essential tools to date and give life to collections. After the rigour of line drawing, the choice of colour shades challenges lines and manipulates the eye to immerse in a unique field of sensations.
16.10.2016 - 20.10.2016
The olympic week is open to children aged 9-15.
Over 30 different sports are proposed free of charge and tried out 50,000 times under the watchful eyes of sporting experts. A pass gives free access to all activities taking place at Ouchy between Place de la Navigation and Tour Haldimand.
Underground Film & Music Festival
19.10.2016 - 23.10.2016
A popular event in Lausanne – and surrounding areas – for the past 13 years, this quirky underground festival offers nothing but original, off-the-wall line-ups. Fusing music and film through innovative one-off creations, Switzerland will host a wide range of avant-garde artists between Wednesday 19th – Sunday 23th October.
