Location and orientation
Lausanne is the fourth most populated city in Switzerland. It is located on the shores of Lake Geneva, on its northern shore. It is very active and concentrates a large part of the population and jobs in Vaud, the canton to which it belongs. It is also a favourite destination for good students. Between the École polytechnique and the École hôtelière, it is home to a significant student body. Despite this, she is calm and keeps a village spirit. Perched in the heights of the Swiss plateau, it has managed to preserve its tranquility.Which district of Lausanne to choose
Lausanne is structured by seventeen central districts. If you want to enjoy the beautiful medieval setting of the historic centre, it is best to stay on City Hill. The area defines the hyper-centre of Lausanne. Most of the historic sites and activities are located there. To enjoy a beautiful view of the lake, the ideal place to stay is in the Montoie-Bourdonnette district. For families, it is preferable to move away from the centre: this is where you will find more spacious and less expensive accommodation.
Travellers and activities
Lausanne is an ideal destination for a stay with children. Several activities are particularly suitable for families. The Olympic Museum, one of the city's flagship sites, provides a fun way to discover Lausanne's connection to sport. In the beautiful natural garden follow one another statues representing sportsmen. Inside, three floors are dedicated to the history of the sport, which they tell in a playful way. Aquatius is another interesting destination for families. It is a large aquarium where you can admire sharks and other large marine animals.Lausanne for art lovers
Lausanne is undoubtedly the cultural capital of Switzerland. Many museums and important buildings were founded there. The tour of the centre begins with Lausanne Cathedral, an impressive 12th century building. We cross the Place de la Palud, one of the most beautiful squares in the historic centre. We can continue to the later Palais de Rumine, which houses no less than five museums. Among the museums, the one devoted to Art brut is inescapable. Also worth seeing is the Mudac, a museum of modern art.
