  • Beautiful traditional building in the middle of Lausanne, usually exhibiting artists of greatest interest. Unfortunately, access for the disabled is well below basic standards. Heartbreakingly, children with mobility issues will not be allowed to reach the upper part of the "Cabane des Beaux Arts", the space dedicated to children! When enquiring about access facilities for the disabled, the lady attending the area was unhelpful and unapologetic, "for the small stair to step up there is nothing for the disabled, sorry"... there are about 13 steps going up to the upper plan of the children's "Cabane". It is such lack of empathy that brought me to jot down a few words here.
  • A lot of stuff to see and for a cheap price.
  • Pity Miss completely the permanent collection at the Museum of art. they are building the new home so there are only temporary ones. beautiful the other museums. Geology, history, nature ...

Where to stay in Lausanne

Elegant Lausanne is home to many luxury hotels for those looking to indulge. There is also a great number of mid-range options, a happy compromise compared to some of the pricey four-star accommodation. You'll also find plenty of guesthouses and bed and breakfasts in the area, though they are slightly removed from the idyllic lakefront. Hostels in the city are few and far between, so come prepared with a flexible budget.
