Hermitage Park

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.

Whatever the season, L’Esquisse is a place where I love to go, whether for a coffee with friends before visiting a new exhibition at the Fondation de l’Hermitage or for a romantic evening… The menu varies according to the season and I still remember the venison I ate one autumn evening! In summer, I’m attracted by the view of the sunset over Lausanne from the terrace, as well as the delicious meal – a lighter one – with a glass of wine! The cocktail buffet during an event that took place there enchanted the whole family with its mini-burgers! The only thing I have yet to experience is the brunch!
