Lausanne, the capital of the canton de Vaud, is located in the French-speaking part of Switzerland. Also known as the “Olympic Capital” as it is the home of the International Olympic Committee and many international sporting institutions, Lausanne is well known for being young, cosmopolitan, vibrant and full of opportunities. Constantly reinventing itself, the city is a value-generating place to travel. Lausanne offers both high-quality culture and alternative scenes. A fine art exhibition, a Béjart Ballet show, electronic rhythms, a new theatre production … Culture is present in all its forms throughout the year. The diverse and eclectic mix of artistic events bears comparison with major European cities.
Basel is generally known as the culture capital of Switzerland. And not without reason: art can be seen wherever you go, whether strolling through the beautiful Old Town or when visiting one of the almost 40 museums. With their themed collections, the museums have something for every taste and many have reputations that stretch far beyond the Swiss border. On top of that, there are countless galleries scattered throughout the city. And that’s not all: the many top-class events that take place here throughout the year such as Art Basel strengthen Basel’s reputation as a cultural hotspot. The city also has a lively theatre and music scene.
