Parc Mon-Repos

Of all the beautiful parks which make up the historical natural heritage of Lausanne, Mon-Repos is without a doubt the most extraordinary: exceptional for the diversity of its architectural elements (neo-Gothic tower, waterfall, neo-Classical temple, orangerie, aviaries etc.), and also for the richness of the documentation in our possession and for the harmony of the ensemble.
A true haven of peace and freshness at the heart of the city, this place is made for walks, meditation and observation. It is also a pleasant community park that offers welcome play areas for children. But Parc Mon-Repos is so much more than that: it is also a remarkable witness of the landscaped garden movement which developed in Europe from the second half of the 18th century, telling us of a time and a place abundant with cerebral debates, cultural exchanges and intellectual enlightenment.

What the Lausanners think
«Take a stroll between the aviaries, stables and orangery (now home to artists' studios), visit the neo-Gothic tower and its waterfall, sit and read at the feet of the giant sequoia, or stop for a bite to eat at the Folie Voltaire...»

«One of my favourite places in Lausanne is Mon-Repos Park. I grew up in the northern part of town and when I attended Bethusy School, Mon-Repos Park was a sacred spot. It is located close to Rue Marterey and its many excellent restaurants. It was our favourite spot for lunch when the weather was good and our favourite meeting place after classes. I grew up in that park and I still really appreciate it to this day.»
