Worth a visit to see the beautiful stained glass windows. There is also an large impressive church organ. I have seen other more ornate churches and cathedrals but this is worth a visit if you are in Lausanne. It is their landmark building. You are allowed to take photos inside. From the train station catch the metro to Riponne-M. Béjart.

From the train station in Lausanne the Cathedral can be reached easily walking or taking the Metro (Station Riponne-M. Béjart). The Cathedral dates is in Gothic style and dates back to the 12th century. The view from the hill on the Lac Léman is great. From there one can explore the old city of Lausanne before going down to the... More

No matter your time in Lausanne, this cathedral is not to be missed. Beautiful stained glass. I enjoyed seeing the organ and would recommend an organ concert though it didn't fit our timing. Explanations of Christian symbolism along the side wall were very well done. The position of the cathedral in the old town makes for lovely city views outside... More

This is a really beautiful cathedral with incredible stain glass, wonderfully quiet corners and an amazing organ. It is free to visit and I think has guided tours.

This was a very good tour and well worth it to go with a group to hear about the history of it. When we got there we got to go to the front of the line cause of the tickets we had gotten and the tour we were on. The cathedral is amazing.
