“Nice view”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 30, 2013

This parc in the middle of the city, in front of the cantonal Tribunal, offers an amazing view of Lausanne and the lake. Go there during the day, at night it is not a great spot, teenagers hang around drinking booze.

“great views”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 9, 2013

People come here for a stroll, to enjoy the view over Lausanne and to sunbathe in the centre of town. The grass and surrounding area is well looked after. Many young people come here in the late evening, when it is good weather, to share their alcohol, too! Worth visiting during the day.

This is a very nice walk with some great sights. Take your time to walk the full length. Good views over the lake.

“Always a smart atmosphere in this beautiful garden”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 12, 2013

If you want to enjoy a picnic area with an amazing sightseeing "bellevue", close to nice aperitif and japanese restaurants, the Esplanade is the best place to do it. Warmly suggested +++

“Splendid view over the lake of Geneva and the French Alps”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 20, 2013

Situated in the middle of Lausanne close to the casino de Montbenon. The view is fantastic and in the casino itself you can have a good lunch or dinner and they have a terrace with a brilliant view.
