How to get there

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.

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.

I appreciate it for its attachment to the local scene, its commitment to the neighbourhood and its rich programming. The place is both a springboard for young artists and a stage for acknowledged personalities. Among the unmissables of the Lausanne scene.

More info

Once occupied by an old truck repair shop, 2.21 is the number allocated to this site in old construction and occupancy plans of warehouses belonging to the City of Lausanne. From 1994 onwards it has been a pocket-sized theatre with multiple auditoriums and a launch-pad for young artists. Théâtre 2.21 is available for a variety of genres - theatre, musicals, lectures, improvisations etc. With its shows in all of these disciplines, it is both about the genres and the means of expression.
