Lausanne has all you need for a fantastic Advent season. In the run-up to Christmas shops will stay open late on three evenings: 18, 20 and 23 December 2019
There are arrangements for the shops to stay open until 10 o’clock at night on three occasions up until Christmas. Whilst luxury outlets await you in the Rue de Bourg, local crafts and Swiss fashion are available to buy in the shops in the old town, known as “La Cité”. The proximity of the Lavaux vineyard, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, means that wine aficionados will find it easy to sample fine wines, some of the best in Switzerland. And chocolatiers in Lausanne are putting the finishing touches to their delicious Christmas creations for those with a sweet tooth.
