A buzzing culture in Lausanne

Things are lively in the Olympic Capital! The cultural life in Lausanne keeps Lausanners quite busy: when they’re not visiting the latest exhibition at the Collection de l’Art Brut, the Olympic Museum or the Fondation de l’Hermitage, they can be found exploring Plateforme 10, the brand new Arts District. Not to forget the plays at the Théâtre de Vidy, the Arsenic, the Théâtre de Beaulieu or the Lausanne Opera, after which they meet up around drinks to chat about the performance. There are also the legendary concerts at the Docks or the Lausanne Chamber Orchestra. If art is so dear to the hearts of Lausanners, it’s because it can be found everywhere in the city: on an electrical cabinet as you round a corner, in an awesome trick in the skatepark or in the performances of artists at the Festival de la Cité. Buzzing, cosmopolitan and accessible, culture is a reflection of Lausanne.
