It’s back to work in Lausanne

By My-Lausanne

With the end of August comes the time to go back to school and back to work, with autumn fast approaching. To keep your spirits up during this period, we have prepared a list of not-to-be-missed events.

Lausanne on the cultural side

Lausanne and Pully Museum Night – September 21, 2019

Saturday, September 21 from 2 pm to 2 am is when the now-famous Museum Night takes place. The concept? Twenty-five partner museums exceptionally open their doors for an evening. From one museum to the next, let your steps be guided by the various exhibitions and activities especially planned for that night.


Jan Groover: Laboratory of Forms at the Musée de l’Elysée – 18.09.2019 to 05.01.2020

This exhibition looks back for the first time over the life’s work of Jan Groover, an American photographer whose work is mainly focused on photographing objects. It is also, however, studded with pictures of landscapes and portraits, most in black and white.
Note that the museum entrance is free until it moves.

Plateforme 10 promises to be one of the highlights of Lausanne: an event not to be missed!

Lausanne on the sports side

The Vaudoise Arena  

THE sports event of the moment is undoubtedly the opening of the Vaudoise Arena, the new Lausanne Hockey Club (LHC) ice rink. To launch the season in this new HQ, head there on September 24 for the region’s most fiery derby, when LHC faces the Geneva-Servette Hockey Club (GSHC). Go, Lions!

Lausanne Marathon – October 27, 2019

To shake off the extra pounds due to summertime “apéros”, what better than to take up running, ideally with a small challenge to overcome? You could try the 10K, semi or even full Lausanne Marathon. The run follows a magnificent course that promises gorgeous views on the lake.

Lausanne on the shopping side


This new boutique in Passage Saint-François is a journey in itself. Here, you’ll find gift ideas, jewellery and interior decoration that owner Anissa uncovers during her travels to Italy, Morocco or Tunisia.
Arcade St-François A, 1003 Lausanne


Amongst those athletic, cultural events and a little dose of shopping, you’re ready to have a smooth back-to-school season. We’re already looking forward to September! Which event are you the most excited about?
