Lausanne resides on the hillside between Lake Geneva below and the woods above, surrounded by meadowland and vineyards, facing the Alps. Lausanne was officially named the Olympic Capital in June 1994, a unique and prestigious title awarded by the International Olympic Committee, headquartered in Lausanne since 1915. Popular with students, Lausanne features numerous private schools and one of the country’s largest university campuses, comprising the Federal Institute of Technology (EPFL) and the University of Lausanne. Lausanne has more to offer young people than most Swiss cities: nightlife, bars, bistros, discos... 16 museums and collections stage more than 50 exhibitions a year, from dinosaurs to contemporary art.
