Musée de design et d'arts appliqués contemporains

After spending 33 years in a soul-less venue in Villamont Avenue, Musée de Design et d'Arts Appliques Contemporains (MUDAC) found a home at the prestigious Gaudard house, magnificently renovated for the occasion. The exhibition space is divided between temporary and permanent collections. There is a large collection of contemporary work by glass artists, together with a very beautiful collection of ancient Egyptian and Chinese Art by Jacques-Edouard.

Lausanne Cathedral

Holding a place of pride in the heart of Lausanne's Old Town, this imposing Gothic cathedral soars over a sea of red-roofed buildings. Although the original master mason is undocumented, construction efforts can be traced back to the 12th Century. The structure was completed roughly a century later in 1275 under an engineer named Jean Cotereel. It was ordained by three important figures - Pope Gregory X, Rudolph of Habsburg, and Guillaume of Champvent, the then bishop of Lausanne. Its belfry a home to seven sonorant bells, the Lausanne Cathedral's other noteworthy features include an exceptional pipe organ and a stained glass window considered to be one of Europe's finest. Those in the city will also hear a town crier announcing the hours every night between 10p and 2a from the bell tower, as has been tradition since the Middle Ages. An architectural wonder par excellence, this historic cathedral comes alive with a repertoire of concerts and a bevy of cultural events.

Musée Cantonal des Beaux-Arts

The Musée Cantonal des Beaux-Arts is one of the most prestigious fine art galleries in the city of Lausanne; the cultural hub of Switzerland. The Musée Cantonal des Beaux-Arts exhibits the works of some of the best artists in the country, be it amateurs or established ones. There are various exhibitions and artistic events taking place here on a regular basis. If you're an avid art lover, then you will not want to miss out on the chance to see a Van Gogh or Picasso.

Ouchy

Ouchy is a great place to relax with the whole family. Paddle by the water fountains, watch the boats leave the harbor or read a book along the shaded quays. There are daily trips across the lake by boat to Evian in France and a worthwhile visit can be made to the Olympic Museum, where you can wander around the gardens free of charge. The beautiful views of Lake Geneva and the Chablais mountains make it a perfect place for a Sunday stroll, but better still if you're on skates.

Olympic Museum

Charming public gardens, planted with exotic trees and shrubs and displaying bronze statues, lead you up to the museum. Once at the top, one can see the modern building is truly inspired by a Greek temple with its white marble facade. Two rows of white columns to the entrance carry the names of the towns that have hosted the Olympic games and the Olympic flame burns in an ornamental granite bowl illustrating the myth of Prometheus. The exhibition leads you through the history of the Olympic games, starting with Ancient Greece. There are beautifully preserved terracotta figures, gold laurel wreathes and marble sculptures to see. On display are all the torches that have been carried in every event since 1936 and a great collection of stamps, coins and medals bearing images of the Olympics. Huge video screens and stereo sound help the viewer to experience a part of the apprehension, excitement and concentration, the athlete encounters before an event.

Lago Léman

The pride of Central Europe, and the largest water body in Switzerland, this crescent-shaped lake is lined with star-studded attractions around its shimmering shoreline that straddles both France and Switzerland. Also referred by the French as 'Léman', for 'large water', the Chablais and Bernese alps wrap the gleaming southern and eastern shores of the lake, a geographic bonus that ensures spellbinding views from every corner. The mesmerizing combination of lake and alpine scenery is more pronounced toward the eastern tip of the lake, between the communes of Vevey and Villeneuve. On the far northern shore, the sides of the mountain are delicately laced with a grove of trees, at the foothills of which idyllic towns and quaint villages lie nestled. Blessed with spectacular views of terraced vineyards that stripe the hills between Lausanne and Vevey, Lake Geneva also attracts a set of enthusiastic oenophiles every year. Under stark blue skies, Lake Geneva is at its resplendent best in the summertime, when Belle Epoque boats lazily ply the lake's shores, and annual regattas like Tour du Lac and yacht racing festivals take advantage of its scenic backdrop.
