Getting warmed up – what to see and what to do
Sightseeing in Lausanne
Get ready for Lausanne: You can explore the most important landmarks by walking or cycling through the picturesque city. The most striking building in the city looks out over Lausanne from a hill in the city’s centre: the Cathedral of Notre Dame. With countless pinnacles, arches and pointed spires, the former bishop’s seat is the most significant example of the Swiss Gothic style. Other medieval buildings in the historic city centre surround the cathedral. The borders of the original city are marked by the imposing Château Saint-Marie; parts of this medieval castle once functioned as the city’s walls.
Alongside cultural highlights, the Olympic Capital also features many sports landmarks. Visit the Museé d’Olympique and learn about the modern Olympic Games. Or get caught up in the enthusiasm of around 15,500 other fans of FC Lausanne-Sport at La Pontaise football stadium. Experience every aspect of Lausanne!
Getting to Lausanne
For students living in Switzerland, the easiest method is by train. If you’re coming from somewhere farther away, you can also opt for flying. The nearest airport is in Geneva. From there, it takes approximately one hour to reach Lausanne by car or train along the shores of Lake Geneva. Along the way, you can enjoy the fantastic view of the lake while getting excited for your language stay in French-speaking Switzerland. You can also travel directly by train or take an international bus. Both options travel to Lausanne multiple times a day from Spain, France and major Central European cities. From the central railway station (Hauptbahnhof), it’s just ten minutes by foot to reach the Voxea Language School.
