Hi, I want to visit Lausanne next week just for one day. Any tips what is worthy to see there within the day regardless what official tourist giudes say? (Oh, and I want shopping too, so I appreciate the fresh ideas too. :))
Thanx

Hello !
idk if you've already come or not but I'll answer all the same just in case ^^

You can take a walk in the Cité (with the Cathedral which has a nice view) and have a sip of great hot chocolate at the "Barbare", or go at the metro station Ouchy and have a walk just by the lake . The tour of Sauvabelin allows you to have a view on the area too ^^

For shopping it's true that it will be expensive here so going to France or anywhere else in Europe will be cheaper. But you'll find nice shops near the Riponne if you still want to shop :)

Enjoy :D

Probably the most unique thing in Lausanne is the museum of "art brut" http://www.artbrut.ch/fr/21070/collection-art-brut-lausanne

As far as I know, it is the only such collection in the world. Even if you are not into art, it is really worth visiting.

hi,
2 hours is far enough, you go out of the rail way station, go up, have a look on the right, there is a big cathedral, take some pictures, then catch the next train, that it's

to do shopping, well, take the boat go to France, because it's damn expensive here

I'm most likely going there on Saturday, but I still don't know whether I'll go to the "in" festival (one needs a ticket to get in) or the "off" (free), it depends on many factors, but if I go to the "off" I'll try to write you beforehand so we might hang.

See you!

Hey I m not a salsa dancer but if you are looking for a place in Lausanne there is a bar called "Movida" next to a Mexican restaurant "Poco Loco" and every Thuersday night it's salsa night. Lots of people and good mojito 😉

Hi guys,
I am travelling to Lausanne from Italy next weekend with my family because dad has a medical exam on monday there. I heard about the prices being way higher than Italy and since we are kind of "on a budget" I was wondering if someone has some tips on restaurants or places where to eat at reasonable prices. I am a vegan but my parents are not.

Thank you in advance!
Serena!!

Maxime Hervo , Fribourg, CHE, about 1 month ago

Hello,
Welcome to Lausanne,
Sure, Lausanne is expensive but there is dseveral places where you can have good food for reasonable prices !
You can go to la Jetée ( https://goo.gl/maps/E4kg9opy2np ) and have some brochettes with a wonderful view on the lake.
Or the Holly cow burger (http://www.holycow.ch/fr/ ) and the bleu Lezard restaurant ( http://www.bleu-lezard.ch/ )
There is often food trucks Place de la Riponne
Try also the Montbenon brasserie, a bit more expensive but with an amazong place.

Hi, forguet in swiss restaurats and cheap places to eat, here a menú + - aceptable cost about 70€ and you have to know were you go . But you can survive with the food (sadwiches, bocadillos, roast chiken... you can buy in MIGROS and COOP supermarkets. Dont't forguet that at 18:00 are closed. In Lausanne Ouchy ther's a COOP closed at 22:00 THE ONLY ONE

Léonard F , Wallisellen, CHE, 2 months ago

thinking slightly outside the box, maybe check this out: http://www.lausanneatable.ch/. that's a program where anyone can organize a short-lived "restaurant" at home. it looks like the "english page" is slightly different, maybe better stick to the french one and click "September"
