May 2 - May 8


Don't forget it's Mother's Day on Sunday! We will be giving away a special something (see photo above) in honor of all of the mothers who have one of the most challenging yet most overlooked job out there. Head on over to our Instagram (@thelausanneguide) to enter for a chance to win.

Here's what's going on this week in and around Lausanne:

  • This Wednesday through Sunday is Fête de la bière in Vevey, where there will be close to 100 different types of beers to try. Pair that with concerts in the evening, and it's sure to be a festive atmosphere!
  • This Sunday there will be a Vegan Picnic at Mon Repos park--it's open to everyone, just bring something sweet or salty (that's vegetarian or vegan) to share!

Lausanne Life: Christophe

Photography by Gabriel

It's always a little bit daunting to be in the presence of an artist--especially when it's an art you know very little about, yet interact with on a daily basis. Christophe is a filmmaker. Half Egyptian, half Swiss, he moved from Cairo to Lausanne when he was 18 to pursue a career in film at ECAL. His films have been premiered around the world, and his most recent film 'Discipline' has won over 80 awards, including the Swiss Academy Award 'The Quartz' for best short film in 2015. Suffice it to say, Christophe is really good at what he does.

Bon Weekend


It's the weekend (enfin)! If you missed our Monday post about what's going on this week/end, check it out here. We hear it's supposed to snow (enter teary emoji here), so we hope you find somewhere to cozy up, drink hot tea, and not get too depressed about spring's sudden retreat. Also good luck to all the 20K runners out there! Get it! Have a wonderful weekend, and here's what caught our eye this week around the web:

Blackbird Downtown Diner

Co-Founders of  Blackbird Coffee & Breakfast Club and Blackbird Downtown Diner:
Rich, Jess, and Max

We were all a bit shocked when we heard that Blackbird Social Club was closing its doors in Riponne--as if a member of our little 'Lausanne favorites' family was losing a limb. But then we heard why the Social Club was closing (for now): to make room/increase capacity for a new project right in the center of Lausanne: Blackbird Downtown Diner. And honestly, we couldn't be happier.

Happy Friday Lausanne! Hope you were able to snag some of those delicious sun rays yesterday--they may need to last you until mid next week! What are you up to this weekend? We are super excited to get the ball rolling on our next installment of our Lausanne Life series, and will of course continue getting our apartments baby-ready (#nothingandnobodyisready). As usual, here are some links that caught our eye this week:
