“Impressive”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 26, 2014

Worth a look at the very interesting stained glass windows from several different periods. Don't miss the side door with all the sculptures - this is what greeted pilgrims on their arrival at the cathedral.

“Gorgeous location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 20, 2014

The walk up to the top of Lausanne rewards you with a beautiful view. The Cathedral itself is lovely, but aren't they all. What was unexpected in this one are the zodiac sign stained glass pieces in the front window. Quite unusual to be able to buy an Aries refrigerator magnet at a cathedral. Definitely worth a visit.

“Great windows, fun to climb”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 17, 2014

Worth the price of a few francs to climb the bell tower, great views, and fun to time it to be on the 2nd of 3 levels when the bells ring, loud but fun!

“Serinity and beautiful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 16, 2014

Visited this cathedral recently, it is well deserve of its fame. Not only is it majestic with its Gothic design, when you entered into the church it fills you with a sense of serinity. I spent some time sitting down to admire the beauty of the church and I was not the only one, almost all visitors who were there when I was seem to take some time just to sit and admire, and maybe doing some reflections too... As this is the kind of church that makes you want to pause and give thanks to the Creator. Whilst I was there, I was lucky enough as there was what seem to be a mini concert and the majestic pipe organ was playing at the same time during my visit. It only added to the overall experience of this visit and enhance the awe that this church seems to have inspired in me.
It is very easy to reach by public transport out by foot, take a leisurely stroll up the hill and you will be rewarded to not only the church but also the lovely view of Lausanne.

“A nice cathedral”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 12, 2014

The cathedral is quite nice, and the current (June 2014) exhibiton of plant roles in the church and modern society just great.
