It's a climb up about 100 steps from the market square but is well worth it. We spent a long time walking around it admiring the painted statues, old stalls, stained glass and the stone carvings around the porch. On the way down you can stop off at the Giraf for a drink or a meal and if you're really lucky and it's Wednesday morning you can catch the market too.

Well worth the effort of walking up to the old town. The biggest cathedral in Switzerland. Unadorned but beautiful in its simplicity. The colours in the stained glass windows are amazing, still bright after all this time.
The views from the cathedral courtyard over Lake Geneva are stunning.

it is located in the top of a hill in the old town of Lausanne. Besides the wonderful gothic architeture of the cathedral, the view of landscape and Lac Leman from there is unforgetable.

Basic cathedral in Europe. Biggest one in Switzerland and still much smaller than anyone we saw in Italy. Not that size is everything.... But it's quite a hike to get up to for not a lot of payoff. The views from the courtyard nearby are excellent though.
