Lake Lucerne
Translating to “Four Forest Cantons Lake,” Lake Lucerne takes an unusual shape with four arms that extend into four cantons. Walk along the shores, or take a short cruise to view the water from a different perspective. Weather permitting, those looking for more adventure can get out on the water with activities like kayaking, paddle-boarding or wake-boarding. Whichever activity you choose, the scenery is sure to blow you away.

Collection de l’Art Brut
Creative genius Jean Dubuffet began gathering works by self-taught creators in 1945, and later donated them in 1945 to the city of Lausanne, which, in 1976, inaugurated the Collection de l’Art Brut at the Château de Beaulieu. This “collection of raw art” invites visitors to reflect on and understand these artists who are not artists.
