To see an exquisite example of Gothic architecture, head to Cathedrale de Lausanne in the heart of the city's medieval Old Town. Built during the 12th and 13th centuries, the building replaced an earlier and much more modest church structure. Thanks to constant conservation efforts and a few careful restorations, the building appears today just as it did upon its completion in 1235. Step inside to see the world-famous organ, which took nearly a decade to design and consists of 7,000 pipes. Take a guided tour to learn more about the cathedral's architecture and history, and climb the tower for sweeping views over the city and its lake.

  • The Cathedral of Lausanne is a very nice building. The must and climb the many stairs to enjoy the mythical view of the city and Lake Geneva. Overnight, the last lookout in the world ticking loud and dark hours. Not to be missed!

  • Comparable to the size and grandeur of the Bern Cathedral (at least from outside). Easily the highlight of the Lausanne Old Town. Since the cathedral complex is elevated you get a wonderful view of the Old Town from the viewing deck. Quite a lot of people hanging out here and taking photos. Magnificent.
  • Largest cathedral in town. You can climb up to the top to enjoy the panoramic view of Lausanne. Absolutely stunning!
