Both an urban location and a coastal resort, nestled between lake, mountains, vineyards and forests, Lausanne owes its appeal to its “dolce vita” lifestyle. Elected best small city in the world, it offers all the attractions of a metropolis, yet on a human scale. Discover unique museums such as Plateforme 10, Lausanne’s new Arts District, or the Collection de l’Art Brut (Outsiders’ Art Collection), experience anew the values of Olympism by entering the Olympic Museum, a unique place in the world, and enjoy lively nights out in the heart of the city or on the shores of Lake Geneva. Let yourself be tempted by our innovative gastronomy that reinterprets tradition by showcasing local products and artisan producers. And … breathe! Lausanne also has a breathtaking natural setting with Lake Geneva, the Alps and the Jura mountains as a backdrop, and the Lavaux UNESCO terraced vineyards close by.
