“Cathedrals never get old (to visit, that is)”

Cathedrale de Lausanne
Ranked #4 of 86 things to do in Lausanne
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed January 15, 2013

High atop Lausanne this cathedral is a showpiece. Gorgeous inside and out, the architecture is phenomenal. The story behind the pipe organ is an interesting one and it is quite impressive. While we were there, people were in line to see the Christmas creche behind and below the altar. Lots of detail and definitely worth a visit, especially over the Christmas holidays.

after the renovation it is sitting in all its splendour on top of Lausanne. Until Jan 20th you must have a look with children at the crib-outstanding art.

One of the oldest cathedrals in Switzerland. After visiting the church, climb the bell tower for a gorgeous view of Lausanne and Lake Geneva. For extra fun, wait around till the bell rings !

I have been to a lot of European and South American cathedrals and this one was really nice and well worth a visit. The architectural details on the outside and stunning and the inside is very nice. Lots of pretty stain glass windows, a giant organ and other lovely details. During December and January, they have a display called the Grande Creche. My friend and I stumbled upon this and thought it was marvelous. We spent a good 20 minutes or so looking at all of the lovely details of the town they had creatively put together. The planning and care that went into this is apparent. It was really beautiful and another good reason to visit the cathedral!

I am not a big fan of churches or cathedrals as I usually find them very dark and gloomy. This is definitely not the case with the Lausanne cathedral which not only has an interesting history to it but also wonderful stained glass windows which reflect on the stone floors wonderfully.
I was positively surprised.
