In addition to being passionate about art and architecture, I also take pictures of everything, all the time, without stopping to think too much. In this regard, a smartphone offers immense freedom and a beautiful sense of spontaneity. Although I love to travel, I never tire of discovering or rediscovering Lausanne, my native city, with its narrow laneways, façades, gardens or different viewpoints. And always on foot or riding my bicycle!
« For me, Lausanne is a close-knit city, young and dynamic, where nature is never far away. I always look forward to the long summer evenings when you can enjoy the lake and picnic in the Lavaux vineyards – definite must-have experiences! »
«From springtime, when nature wakes up gradually, to wintertime, when the new greenhouse offers a welcome shelter among tropical plants, the Botanical Garden is the perfect place for a quiet wander in all seasons.»
«You’ve hardly walked in the door when Steeve and Davide’s friendly welcome immediately puts you in a good mood. On the spot (if you’re lucky enough to find a free table!) or to take away, their latte macchiato softens mornings when it’s difficult to get going.»
«Jewellery, dishware, accessories, small decorative items, second-hand clothes… This boutique with many treasures offers a lovely selection of creators from around here or further afield, and is ideal to buy gifts for our loved ones or ourselves!»
«The dilemma when you reach the counter? Choosing between the thick slices of pizza straight from the oven, the pasta or the focaccias garnished with uber-fresh ingredients! To be savoured ideally in the nearby Mon-Repos Park.»
«Housed in a superbly renovated historic hall, this brasserie highlights the canton of Vaud by relying on suppliers from the region. In the summer, the terrace becomes a popular place to dine or sip on a drink with a stunning view of the lake.»
«Alongside the classic flavours of its handmade frozen treats, loom regularly offers new ice-cream and sorbet seasonal taste sensations, such as Valais apricot in summer or “raisinée” pear syrup and gingerbread in winter. Cinnamon remains irresistible for me!»
«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...»
«Lausanne’s food market sets up for business throughout the city every Wednesday and Saturday, with numerous stalls offering all sorts of products. A must for anyone who loves to buy fresh produce.»
«This tiny speciality grocery shop offers an impressive assortment of products from all over the world as well as a delicatessen section featuring empanadas, hummus, tzatziki and stuffed grape leaves, to name a few. However, the flagship product remains their famous merguez fresh sausages.»
«Since 2016, Julie Stoudmann has been selecting limited-edition objects and unique pieces for her otherworldly boutique. From dried flowers, plants, vases, flowerpots and accessories to stationery and all-natural products, the link with the plant kingdom remains omnipresent.»
«The best burgers in the city! The ingredients are fresh and local, the burger of the month is always innovative, and even better: all burgers are available in a vegetarian version. Two locations in Lausanne, with Grancy being a personal favourite.»
