What to do in Lausanne in March?

As we await the arrival of spring, there are activities galore and, believe us, there is something for everyone! Whether it’s for lovers of freshwater fauna and flora, culture buffs, shopping addicts or those who simply want to relax, this month of March will be a well-filled one in Lausanne.

Our March bucket list

Marvelling at the contemporary dance performances of the Printemps de Sévelin


The festival remains, as it does every year, an opportunity to experience strong and distinctive shows, testifying to the diversity of international, national and regional choreographic creativity.


Going to see the 10,000 fish and hundred or so reptiles at Aquatis


It presents animals through a totally immersive and interactive scenography using innovative digital technologies. More than an aquarium or a vivarium, AQUATIS is an exceptional journey through our planet’s most fascinating freshwater environments. It is a recreational area, a pole of environmental education and a platform for exchanges.


Setting off on a shopping trip to unearth second-hand gems


Giving clothing and accessories a second life is not only trendy, but also a lifestyle. Discover our favourite second-hand and vintage boutiques in Lausanne to get great bargains.


Taking a virtual trip to Hollywood or Cannes by watching the masterpieces presented by the Think Cinema Festival


The 6th edition of the Think Cinema Lausanne Festival will take place from March 7 to 17, 2024. Cinema will be in the spotlight with screenings of heritage masterpieces, chats with prestigious guests, panel discussions, masterclasses, workshops, and exclusive previews on the topic “Let’s Dance”.


Treating yourself to a cocooning moment by going to read a book in an ultra-cosy café


Discover our selection of the best coffee shops to enjoy a nice espresso or a lovely latte in a setting where you feel comfortable.


Dive into the heart of pop culture, video games and manga with Polymanga!


For this 2024 edition, there will be over 50 guests, concerts, screenings, youtubers, tiktokeurs, over a dozen video game tournaments, a publisher’s showroom, 4 cosplay parades, karaoke… and lots more, not forgetting a huge shopping gallery!
