  • Museum beautifully installed in front of the Lake, we follow the Olympics since antiquity until today through their return thanks to the Baron of Coubertin.C' is pretty emotional moment, we spent almost 3 hours with 3 children (no medals for me...) It's really to do if we don't stay very long in the corner you still take a little time. Price 18 and 10 for children.

  • For sports fans is a must. Traces the history of the Olympics from Greece to date through modern media and interactive channels. In the last room you can challenge yourself with cool games of memory and speed. For those who truly love the Olympics because the entrance is really expensive!

  • A really interesting museum with lots of historical artifacts and also art. It has a really nice view of the lake and many beautiful sculptures outside. There is a discount available for students.
  • I was seriously impressed by this museum. Great information and artefacts from past olympics. Definitely worth the visit - I spent about 3 hours in here. Interactive for children too (ages 6+)
  • Great place to visit while in Lausanne. I do wish the gift shop had a bit more selection!
  • One of the best musuem I've ever been to. The way each exhibit is presented is marvellous. Excellent use of technology.
  • Great experience by participating course Lausanne Capitale Olympique 2017, 5km. I love it!

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.
