Lausanne – Overview

Lausanne – Overview

Lausanne rises elegantly in terraces on three hills above the north shore of Lake Geneva in Switzerland’s French-speaking region. High bridges span the gorges of two rivers that cut through the city, combining with the steep rise from the lakeshore to give Lausanne a dramatic and scenic terrain with views of the Savoy Alps across the lake. An old university city and now a busy commercial one, it is popular for congresses, trade fairs, and conventions, with a number of outstanding meeting venues. Lausanne is the world headquarters of the Olympic Committee, and an Olympic museum is among its most popular tourist attractions.

The Romans established a trading colony here in the first century BC, and by the Middle Age, Lausanne’s cathedral was already important as a pilgrimage stop on the Way of St. James. To sense this old city, wander the winding streets below the cathedral; and to capture the elegance of its late-18th-century grandeur as a highlight of the Swiss Riviera, descend to the shore where Belle Époque hotels line its lakeside promenade.
