Lausanne is blessed with a mighty 350 hectares of parks and gardens, making it a seriously green city. As for what to do when you find yourself in some of those 350 hectares, consider taking a rowing boat out on Sauvabelin Park’s gentle waters, feel like a champion by navigating the vast Olympic Park, bike along Lake Geneva’s shore in Louis Bourget Park, admire the mighty and ancient trees of Denantou Park, or just simply relax in any park you choose, soaking up all that glorious green landscape.
The gorgeous city of Lausanne is a wonderful place to visit at any time of year, but it’s during summer that the region shines brightest. This is partly thanks to its enviable location on Lake Geneva’s north shore, an area which comes alive during summer months and offers all kinds of activities, both on and off the water.
But even aside from the lake, this is a city that’s packed with experiences to satisfy all visitors. We’ve selected six of our favourite highlights below, but whatever ends up on your itinerary, grab yourself a Lausanne City Pass to make the most of your trip. This clever ticket gives you discounts on some of the area’s best attractions, including The Olympic Museum, Plateforme 10 (Lausanne’s arts district) and many more.
