Activities in Lausanne
LausanneLausanne is a sports city. This is not only because Lausanne is considered the international capital of sport, but also because Lausanne was built over several hills on the shores of Lake Geneva. But we can promise you one thing: every drop of sweat when walking through the most Mediterranean city in Switzerland is well worth it. A tour through the lake Ouchy while marvelling at the deep blue lake and scattered palm trees brings the shores of Lake Garda to mind. Thanks to its numerous educational institutions, research centres and several exceptional museums, Lausanne also presents itself as an important cultural centre. And so, in the shadow of Notre Dame Cathedral, you'll be spoiled for choice between 22 major museums. Whether it's Musée Olympique, Palais de Rumine, Musée de l'Elysée, Chaplin's World or the Botanical Gardens, Lausanne is and remains an El Dorado for culture fans with a preference for Mediterranean flair.
