Explore a light festival, visit hip hangout Le Flon, or bathe in Lake Geneva – the French-Swiss town of Lausanne is Switzerland’s best-kept secret.

Warm up with a run or cycle around Lausanne’s lakeside promenade at Ouchy. If the weather permits, swim at the Piscine de Bellerive or head in the opposite direction towards Plage de Pully. Watching the sun come up over the Alps while bathing in Lake Geneva is one of those once-in-a-lifetime experiences.
