Lausanne The Essential
Recommended
This pleasant and cosmopolitan city on the shores of Lake Geneva is home to the World Olympic Movement, as well as an arts and entertainment centre. Its most lively districts lie south of the cathedral, towards the Place Centrale. This site was occupied since the Neolithic period and the city flourished in the Middle Ages, later supporting the Reformation and taking part in the Enlightenment Movement. Lausanne University brilliantly perpetuates this past. Do not miss the wonderful vast Gothic cathedral.
