Our Lausanne to-do list

It’s never been easier to explore Lausanne. For food, relaxation or sightseeing, we’ll show you the secret Lausanne that’s a little off the beaten track.

Grab your notebook, because we’ve got everything you need for your next weekend break on your own, with family or friends.

1. Indulge yourself, over and over

You’ll just melt with pleasure.
It’ll warm the cockles of your heart in all seasons. (even in summer, we assure you!)
You can have it “half and half”.
You can put your own twist on it, with herbes de Provence, chilli or mushrooms.

We’re talking about fondue, of course! Try it at our favourite restaurant, l’Evêché, with its warm and friendly feel. Our bonus tip: the garden at the back of the courtyard.

💶 Fondue price per person: CHF 27.

2. Head over to Yvoire!

Return to France for all the right reasons.

Take to the water and head to Yvoire – France’s most stunning village. You’ll spot its distinctive silhouette from a distance, with its castle and church right at the water’s edge. You’re going to love it!

💶 Prices for a crossing from Lausanne to Yvoire start from CHF 26.

3. Time for bed

Are you looking for a whole new experience that will give you plenty of stories to tell? How about staying in someone’s home?

Couchsurfing is a sure-fire way to find free and friendly accommodation, complete with home comforts.

The more adventurous among you can try staying at a farm for a more unusual experience.

4. Our favourite museums

Here are two good reasons to go to Lausanne.

Are you a sports fan?
Immerse yourself in the Olympic spirit and head to the Olympic Museum – the only one of its kind in the world. Fancy impressing your friends with your Olympic knowledge? Put on your headphones and immerse yourself in the “À la Croisée des Jeux” podcast. Away from the fervour of the Paris 2024 Olympic and Paralympic Games, this museum is a must-see. With a view of the lake, please.

💶 Museum entrance fee: CHF 20.

Prefer modern art?
Head to Plateforme 10. This isn’t just a museum, it’s a whole artistic neighbourhood. If you love contemporary art, there’s something for everyone. Photography, design, fine art – a world of vibrant colours awaits. 

💶 Museum entrance fee: CHF 25. But two of you can get in for CHF 38... Shhh, that can be our little secret.

5. Treat yourself to a bit of fresh water

If you love the challenge, take the great leap into Lake Geneva.

What better way to cool off in the middle of summer than in a clear, cool bath? Don't you think?

6. A feast for the eyes

Nestled between lakes and mountains, Lausanne is sure to capture your heart. Discover the secrets of the Olympic capital, ranked the best small city in the world

For some truly priceless experiences, take your perfect Instagram snap on the “Escaliers du Marché” steps, stroll around the old town and lose yourself in the beauty of the cathedral.
