About us

It all began over a decade ago, over mugs of tea that eventually turned into glasses of wine in a little café that has since changed at the foot of La Cité. The Lausanne Guide was a passion project shared between two friends, a love letter to an adopted city; a chance to discover and share the very best that Lausanne had to offer. And though many things have changed in this city, and though TLG has grown and is now an entire team of individuals with diverse voices and perspectives, our mission remains the same: to bridge people and place, to be an independent resource for those living in and visiting Lausanne, and to shape an inclusive community where readers and residents feel connected, empowered, and inspired. Because ultimately, we believe Lausanne is the best small city in the world—are you ready to dive in and explore it?
