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.

Every year in August, the whole family eagerly waits for the Petit Théâtre's programme to be published. Situated just a few steps from the cathedral in an old building with a lovely garden, the Petit Théâtre offers a variety of performances for children of all ages. Pssst, sometimes there are still a few tickets available at the box office on the day of the performance!

Children need to have their own cultural space as well, and the mission of the Petit Théâtre is to satisfy this curious and demanding audience with high-quality, diverse performances. To accomplish this, many types of performing arts are blended with the shows: music, dance, painting and videos enliven the performances to the delight of the little ones.
