  • This place is one of the most beautiful balconies on the Lake. There is a statue of the mythical hero of the Helvetii with his crossbow representative: Guillaume Tell. On this old place d'Armes, a short walk from St-François, in the city centre, the esplanade of Montbenon offers a collection of extraordinarily varied atmospheres on more than half a kilometer away, completely flat, which is rare in Lausanne! Moving from a shady walk, richly floral clumps, in an enchanting setting around a romantic fountain. If you want to feel the pulse of a rather happy city while admiring wonderful views, it is here you come! Two imposing buildings Crown this esplanade: the Casino de Montbenon, which hosts including the Swiss Cinémathèque, and the imposing Palace of Justice, of Renaissance style.
