Lausanne, dynamic Olympic capital

On the shores of Lake Geneva, Lausanne is one of the most beautiful cities in Switzerland. Its quality of life and culture are as well known as its centres of education and scientific institutions. The seat of the International Olympic Committee, Lausanne is known worldwide as the Olympic capital.

A modern, multi-faceted city, Lausanne has all the qualities of a business city and holiday destination. With its innovative amenities, top class hotels and exceptional cultural sites, Switzerland’s fourth city, the capital of the canton of Vaud, has all the assets of a city but on a human scale.

Curious visitors immerse themselves in the history of the old town – “La Cité” – and admire the gothic cathedral; businessmen combine work and pleasure in this city’s fabulous, modern amenities; shopaholics indulge in a bit of window-shopping along the paved streets; foodies enjoy fine food and local wines; families have fun at the many events or interactive museums, the Olympic museum being the top pick; and night owls soak up the buzzing nightlife of the trendy Flon district. With its authentic, cosmopolitan atmosphere, Lausanne will have them all coming back for more.
