A must visit hotspot in Lausanne. It is very easy to anscend and take photos of the town and the lake from a high hill a few minutes walking from the central gare. Do not miss it, I highly recommend it!

This is a nice little park to relax and chill. It is worth the detour if you are in downtown Lausanne. There is a nice view of Lausanne and the lake and the tribunal architecture is worth seeing.
