It's definitely worth seeing! The cathedral is monumental, and the architecture of the building itself is exceptional!It's located in the upper part of the city center,so it over looks the city and that's why you can make some great photos from up there.Once inside,it doesn't disappoint-if you ask me,inside is better then the Duomo di Milano(Milan's cathedral).

The New Year’s Eve Celebration @ the Cathedral of Lausanne is a very peaceful event. No big fireworks, only the people, the bells and the red torch light make it a special event. Just nice!

This cathedral was quite beautiful with its dark architecture. There are frequent free tours which you can show up to and learn quite a bit about the history.

A really stunning Cathedral. Be sure to climb the tower for spectacular views of Lausanne and lake Geneva. If you can, go see it at night for 'Le Guet' - a very lovely and ancient tradition. We clapped and were invited up for a late night guided tour.

Please visit this place if you are in Lausanne. Though it might take you some time to walk up to the street but trust me, WORTH it. The great pipe organ is very unique.
