  • The Foundation of the Hermitage proves once more its quality and expertise with this beautiful exhibition of pastels, Tiepolo to Szafran from, among others, by Degas, Redon, Denis... Insightful choice of works, clear training paths, neat museography. All in a sober and elegant, perfect for highlighting this assortment of pastels very varied. Discretion and efficiency. Icing on the cake: the library is always well endowed, the choice of products is without fault, it's a real pleasure. This Foundation is unquestionably a high place of appointment with the art. We are never disappointed.

  • In addition to the place and building which are already much pleasant to the eyes, the exhibits are always great qualities. A Hermitage in the Swiss dimension certainly but which is essential during a visit to Lausanne

  • Museum in Lausanne where I go to every show. Very charming and very successful museography. Some of the largest collections in Switzerland have been exposed to the Hermitage.

  • A superb collection. I am pleased I got to see it today. And want a wonderful place to visit!
  • The admission is 19CHF per person and it includes the audio guide too. Many of the museums here charge about 5CHF/EUROS at least so it is very reasonable and you have self-guide tours. And at the back of the museum, there is a beautiful garden with a lake view. There were people just came for a picnic and cycling.
  • Very nice place for hiking with a great restaurant just in front of the art gallery
  • Art museum with international and local paintings and sculptures. The museum has a café/restaurant and a gift shop.
  • I visited when the collection of E. G. Bührle was displayed. Amazing impressionist collection!

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.
