Lausanne - Pearl on the Swiss Riviera

I went to Animalia08 (that's why there are some pet pics in here) in Lausanne last weekend for we were looking for a new ferret as one of ours died last week - so I took the opportunity of the nice and warm weather to take some pics I like to share with you. Different from noisy and quite dirty Geneva Lausanne is a real bijou. Unfortunatly the Metro was still not opened.

Hope you like it

I liked Lausanne very much indeed. We were there in the summers of 2000 and 2003 and it really was a stunning looking city - great weather too!

Thanks for the shots, they're excellent.

It's not too small. With suburbs it has close to 400'000pop and is part of Leman Metro which is >1mio. But it has a very nice medium-town flair even in the center thanks to the preservation of the old town.

I only visited Lausanne in the eighties when I worked in Switzerland. I liked this city a lot and it had a wonderful, relaxed atmosphere.
Thanks for the beautiful pictures.

Die Eidgenossen und ihre schönen Städte.

Very nice pics, I had never seen such a detailed thread of Lausanne. The city was in my plans (which were ruined) for my August trip in Europe, but it's okay, next time I'll definitely visit it. The architecture is amazing!

The architecture is extremly diverse from middle age to classicism and art deco, from empire to bauhaus. I wish I have once more time to see a bit more of the city. Most of these once were taken within less than one hour and only the center and part of the lake park
