La Cité

This is a quarter full of typical small bistros and craft shops. To the north of the Cité hill, at Place du Tunnel, avenue César-Roux avenue and Place de l’Ours, shops and quirky bistros cry out to be discovered. It is around the Cité hill, sculpted by the Flon and Louve rivers, that the mediaeval town grew. Its cobble-stoned pedestrian streets as well as its monuments, the Cathedral of Lausanne, the St-Maire Castle and the Old academy, bear witness to that.

Lausanne Cathedral

At the heart of the old town, the majestic Lausanne Cathedral overlooks the city. Seen as one of the most beautiful gothic art monuments in Europe, it attracts more than 400,000 visitors every year.

Palud square

In the centre of the square is the town’s oldest fountain, adorned with a statue representing justice. Close by, a clock presents the history of Vaud in animated scenes every hour from 9:00 to 19:00. On Wednesday and Saturday mornings this is the site of the country market, which also sets up shop in the neighbouring pedestrian streets. Every first Friday of the month, it plays host to a craft market. Typical cafes, boutiques and large, elegant shops complement what this high-class district, which is completely pedestrianised, has to offer.

Located in Cheneau-de-Bourg, the building from the 15th century is representative for this friendly Lausanne neighbourhood. After flirting with gastronomic absolutes and wining and dining stars and crowned heads, La Grappe d’Or fell somewhat into oblivion. Its reopening with Chef Théotime Bioret, the former chef of the famous Le Cinq restaurant, was therefore eagerly awaited as the gastronomic event of the year. And gourmets are not disappointed! With its rather original transalpine cuisine “from Vintimille to Venice”, the menu card invites the guests to enjoy an eating experience as in Italy, with affordable antipasti and primi piatti. The meats of the secondi piatti are cooked to perfection thanks to a broiler that is visible from the dining room. On the beverage side, the talent of manager Laurent Bigler is reflected in the beautiful wine cellar and the vast selection of gins and tonics served at a large bar.
