Treasure Hunt or Mystery Tour

You think that you know all about a town...

The aim of this game is to enable one to have a better idea about the history of Lausanne.

The game works as follows: with the help of pictures one has to find a building, or a piece of architecture, relating to an event in Lausanne's history. This treasure hunt is for adults or families with children, and school classes with students from 15 years old.

This is a coursIMG 0790 200e where one must look upwards (no daydreaming!). It goes from the town centre towards the Cité, passing by the most emblematic places of Lausanne's past. It can be done as a walk of discovery, or as a competition between groups. At the end of the course one can check the replies to the various questions and, if requested, additional information can be obtained on any historical event.




Throughout the year, except Sundays and Public Holidays (according to availability of a guide).
