Walking in the Botanic Gardens in Lausanne is an instant cure for stress. Lots of winding paths with views of the the lake around the corner and the sound of children laughing and playing come to you in waves that lift your mood.

Although walking to the top of the little hill offers a great view on the lake, the botanical garden is not exceptional.

Walked there in the evening but it was already closed, so not much comment in here except it is quite an interesting place... judging from the view from outside the place.

This garden makes you feel like you're in a great place, breathing great fresh air and enjoying a great, beautiful view over Lausanne and the lake. The best you can do on a sunny day.
