For me, the most beautiful view of Lausanne in springtime is from the Musée de l’Élysée’s park. With its alley bordered with cherry blossoms and its benches, it’s the perfect place for a lunch break with a view over Lake Geneva.
More info
Photo Elysée - Cantonal Museum for Photography, is located in the heart of the Plateforme 10 arts quarter, in a new exhibition space that also houses the mudac.

Exclusively given over to photography, the museum aims to introduce all forms of this artistic discipline to the general public. This unique and internationally renowned museum has several photographic collections, including photographs by Charlie Chaplin, an illustrious resident of the Lake Geneva Region.

The temporary exhibitions of Photo Elysée are shown in Lausanne but also in galleries all over the world.
