About Lausanne – Switzerland
If you are moving house to Lausanne, this vibrant, picturesque lakeside city is packed with things to do. It is Switzerland’s fourth largest city has a beautiful medieval centre dominated by an impressive Gothic cathedral (above); and as well as the mountain of museums, art galleries, festivals, shops, restaurants and bars, Lausanne has a multi-cultural vibe as it is not only recognised as the ‘Olympic Capital’ but is also home to plenty of large, international corporations.
Lausanne has a long history that stretches back to roman times when the Romans built an army camp near the lake. After the fall of the Roman Empire the centre was moved to its current, hilly location which was easier to defend. Fast forward to the 50s, 60s and 70s and it became a destination for a number of Spanish, Portuguese and Italian immigrants, which helped swell the population to its current level of 140,000.
If you are organising removals to Switzerland and have some free time on your hands, among the many tourist draws include the cathedral tower, offering spectacular views over Lausanne. Other must-dos are to take a wander around the old town with its charming cobbled streets, and to take a trip to the Palais de Rumine, which has a number of museums inside.
