Lausanne Olympic Museum

Recommended
Along the banks of Lake Geneva, this unusual site has architecture inspired by the Greek temples by Pedro Ramirez Vázquez and Jean-Pierre Cahen, who have created a façade of white marble from the Greek island of Thássos. In front stands a granite torch where the Olympic flame burns forever. All the history of the Olympics is found here through objects dating back to Greek Antiquity. The life and work of Baron de Coubertin are also on display.
