  • It is a hill park near Lausanne station. It is a great place to see Lake Geneva and cities on the other side of the city.

  • After a good meal at the brewery of Montbenon, a little walk on the Esplanade where the view is always beautiful. Even if the weather is not fixed, I appreciate the beautiful spring flowers that brighten the flowerbeds.

  • Pricey, but high quality good and service.
  • Brasserie de Montbenon, charmingly restored from being a former casino in the early-mid 20th century. Overlooks a grand view of the lakeview part of Lausanne city.
