NileGuide Expert Says:
Sonja Holverson, local expert reports that the 19th century Library that is there is still a part of the University but also the Lausanne Fine Arts Museum with an excellent permenant collection and exhibitions. The Riponne is mostly know for its underground garage which is very convenient to park for the center of Lausanne.
NileGuide Expert tip:
Sonja Holverson advises that if you go up the stairs on the right of the building you find yourself at the base of the Lausanne Cathedral with a passage to go up and easily visit.
- Place de la Riponne is where locals of Lausanne flock to for the weekly Saturday open-air markets. Here is your chance to taste a special cheese that is particular only to this city.
