Things to do in Lausanne

by AussieTravellers

Apart from the lake, what else is there of interest or a "must see" in Lausanne?

Re: Things to do in Lausanne

by Etoile2B

The Olympic Museum is rather interesting. And if I remember correctly there is a cool castle around there too - but it's been many years since I last visited so my memory might be foggy on the castle but I did like the Museum!

Thanks Etoile2B - seems like 24 hours may be a long enough stay. Really just want to break the train journey from Paris to Rome.

i agree about the Olympic Museum

worth a visit

Re: Things to do in Lausanne

The cathedral is worth a closer look.

Besides, Lausanne didn't mean much to me, especially not compared to the other Swiss cities.

Thanks to all who responded - appreciate the suggestions.

Take the train just a little bit further up the lake from Lausanne and visit Chateau Chillon. It is an amazing castle in fantastic condition.

http://www.chillon.ch/en/ is their website and

Paavo Nurmi, Drazen Petrovic, Emil Zatopek (I&V)

by Zvrlj

[…] National Olympic Committees of Finland, Croatia and Czech Republic paid tribute to their sport heroes by having sculptures of them in the Olympic Park.

"Flying Finn" Paavo Nurmi statue was donated in 1994 by the Olympic Committee of Finland. The legendary runner has been immortalized by Waino Aaltonen in 1925, and the statues can be seen in Turku, Helsinki and Jyvaskyla in Finland, and in Lausanne. Interesting fact is that five bronze statues have been cast in the same mould – in 1925, and again in 1952 for the city of Helsinki, in 1952 to be donated, two years later, to the city Nurmi was born in – Turku, in 1994 for the Olympic Museum, and in 2001 for the city of Jyvaskyla.

On the 29th of April, 1995, Drazen Petrovic statue, the masterpiece of sculptor Vasko Lipovac, was inaugurated in the Olympic Park. During the 1980s, Drazen was the hero of almost every single boy in Yugoslavia. His tragic death occurred at the time of the wars on the territory of former Yugoslavia, but the sorrow was beyond national borders. Seeing Drazen in front of the Olympic Museum produced very emotional moment. The fact that we are not compatriots couldn't affect that.

The statue of "Czech Locomotive" Emil Zatopek, artwork of Jaroslav Broz was erected in 2002. The statue was unveiled two years after the Emil Zatopek's death, in the presence of his wife Dana Zatopkova, the 1952 Olympic Javelin champion.

Beside those three, there is the statue of Pierre de Coubertin in the Olympic Park.

Chateau de Chillon

by sue_stone

A highlight of our visit to Lausanne was a trip along the lake to the Chateau de Chillon. This proper castle-looking castle is located on a small rocky island on the edge of Lake Geneva, making an approach by boat a great way to arrive for a visit.

The castle was constructed prior to 1150 - as written mentions from that time refer to it. Over the years it was used as a fortress, arsenal and prison. Restoration commenced in the late 19th century and still continues, though it does appear to be in pretty good condition.

A visit inside the castle is a must, and when we visited (July 2008) tickets were CHF 12 for adults. You can also pay extra for an audio tour, but the leaflet they give you with your standard ticket offers so much information that I don't think an audio tour is worth the extra cost.

The aforementioned leaflet leads you on a tour through the different (numbered) parts of the castle, starting in the cellar and crypts, continuing through the main living quarters and bedrooms, onto the watchtower and beyond.

The castle is located 45 minutes walk from Montreux, along the river, or catch trolley bus No. 1 to Montreux (or onto Vevey) where you can catch the train to Lausanne. Or catch the ferry like we did.

The Seat of International Olympic Committee (I&V)

by Zvrlj

The seat of International Olympic Committee is in Lausanne, but it is neither in the building of the Olympic Museum, nor near it. The seat building is in part of Lausanne called Vidy, by the shore of Lake Geneva, west from the city center. In front of the building there is the famous and widely recognizable "Monument to the Olympic Games", artwork of Catalan sculptor Josep Maria Subirachs i Sitjar, created in 1983. In the beautifully shaped surrounding there are a few more sculptures, among them one from the "Tai Chi" series by Taiwanese sculptor Ju Ming. On the south side of IOC building, between the building and the lake, is Place du Granit – Granite Square, with beautiful, granite, cascade fountain.

Bar w/dance floor, cool atmosphere

by id_unknown about Le XIIIème Siècle

Cool disco bar near the cathedral, the age count is slightly higher than your-average-students'-place.
It 's located in a sort of old cellar so it's quite dark, but the mood is great. There are three different bars scattered over the place, so you should be able to get something to drink without having to wait too long. Prices are not cheap, though.
The music is very dance-y yet not over the top as in a disco, which is good both as background music if you're only there to drink something and as music to dance to if you actually go to the dance floor/hall downstairs.
