Sainath the walking man
It’s a small, well-hidden hill where there are beautiful buildings and, especially, a gorgeous esplanade that looks down over the lake. It’s one of the most pleasant places in Lausanne to chill while admiring the landscape and the uniqueness of the Alps – special mention for the sunset that is something else. There is also a small vineyard that evokes the wine-growing past of this part of town, as well as the extent to which we’re in a really lovely place.

Just a stone’s throw east of Lausanne, you will find the start of the Lavaux vineyard, a registered UNESCO World Heritage site. Stretching from the lake to the sky, this vineyard is known for its steep slopes, its old walls, its traditional villages and its white wine, made from Chasselas, a local grape variety.
