Rue de Bourg

Rue de Bourg

Until the beginning of the 19th century, the Rue de Bourg, which is a pedestrian zone today, was one of the main thorough fares of old Lausanne. In those days the town only extended over three hills, those of Cité, Saint-Laurent and Bourg.

Being mainly occupied by patrician families, this street was an elegant and sophisticated meeting place. If you look up, you will see the town’s loveliest group of 17th- and 18th- century houses. Today this street is popular with keen shoppers.
