Hermitage Park

Avenue Louis-Vulliemin
This magnificent country park boasts one of the best vantage points in Lausanne. But the panoramic views are by no means the only attribute of the Hermitage. As the setting for an internationally renowned museum and spectacular trees, it blends nature and culture at the same time.

The Hermitage Park, above the city of Lausanne, is without a doubt my favourite. A book in hand, lying on the green grass, I am ready for a relaxing break with, as a view, the silhouette of the Cathedral standing out in front of the lake and the Alps.

The main reason why the park is so well known is the presence of the Fondation de l’Hermitage, which occupies the old mansion and stages exhibitions on an international scale. Also worthy of mention are the flower meadows, whether for a run or a siesta.

Lying on the grass whilst contemplating the Savoy Alps and Lake Geneva, it's difficult to imagine that it's only a ten-minute walk to the town centre. With its majestic trees and its mansion, the park exudes a pleasant aura of calm and serenity.
