It’s the first week of vacation in Vaud, so it’s time for Festival de la Cité!! In case you’re a newcomer to Lausanne, this means you’ll want to cancel your evening plans, put on a good pair of shoes and get ready to enjoy endless outdoor art events, food and activities.

Check out the Festival de la Cité official program to decide where you want to spend your time.

Oh and there’s another party just up the Lake that you won’t want to miss. It’s called the Montreux Jazz Festival ;).

Did someone say outdoor salsa party?!

Lausanne sur mer offers free water sport rentals and lessons over the next two weeks at the Vidy Pyramids.

Watch Sofia Coppola’s Marie Antoinette at the open air cinema in Mon Repos. Dinner available from Folie Voltaire. Date night = done.

Also in Mon Repos, Wednesday and Thursday nights, enjoy a beautiful live music from the Lausanne Sinfonietta.

An organ concert and discussion of how the instrument works at the Lausanne Cathedral.

Seriously, how do they expect us to choose from all the great activities this week!? We’ll be doing our best to keep up and sharing photos of what we love – follow us on Instagram if you want to come along! @thelausanneguide
