“Nice”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 22, 2013

Impressive, but not gaudy (a Protestant cathedral). Worth the visit, also for the view. We came after Christmas, and saw the very impressive creche display.

“Catch the nativity scene in December”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 20, 2013

Impressive architecture, with great views of the city all around, but my lasting memory is that of the nativity scenes. I visited about a week before Christmas and they had a truly remarkable exhibition inside. The detail of the models were unbelievable.

“top of a Lausanne hill”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 16, 2013

The cathedral has interesting architecture and a great view point from above the tower. The entrance is not well indicated, but it is to the right when you step in, tickets (2-3 CHF) can be purchased in the gift shop. There are opening hours.

“Cathedrals never get old (to visit, that is)”
5 of 5 bubbles 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.
