NileGuide Expert tip:
Local Expert Sonja Holverson advises: if you have the energy, climb the tower stairs for the view of a lifetime.
- Lausanne's Cathedral is the biggest and the most beautiful Gothic building in Switzerland. Though inaugurated in 1275, the north tower is still missing! During the day, you can climb on the top of the tower for a superb view of the city; and don't miss the stained-glass. From 10p-2a, the town crier shouts out the hour from the four sides of the tower as has been the tradition since the Middle Ages; the last to do so in Europe. The Cathedral often hosts classical concerts.
