Current exhibitions

Culture is close to the hearts of Lausanners, and this is reflected in the city’s museums that constantly offer very rich and varied exhibitions. This autumn, we hurry to discover them.

Savour traditional cuisine

One thing is certain in Lausanne – there is always time to eat well. Spoil yourself with the delicious fondues, the celebrated “papets vaudois” (local sausages, leeks and potatoes), “croûtes au fromage” (a richer and more substantial variation of the Welsh rarebit theme) and perch fillets which are never out of favour!
