Geneva, Switzerland – The perennial question, “what’s there to do on Sundays in Geneva or Lausanne?” lingers on and stays floating in the air as if waiting for a magical answer to materialize. Well the simple answer is, don’t wait, plan ahead for those lazy Sundays in the Lake Geneva area.
Planning, not improvising, seems to be in the Swiss-top-10 list of values. With that in mind, here are two tips for the first weekend of each month:
Let’s start in Vaud where there is free entry to 15 museums in Lausanne and Pully the first Saturday of the month. Start your Saturday by visiting the town’s main square, the Riponne Plaza, where a local produce and products market, and a small flea-market take place – warning, the food market ends at 14:30.
Then visit the Roman Museum or stay in the Plaza and visit the Natural History Museum housed in the Rumine Palace. Your kids will give you a gold medal for it and no déplacement is required.
The first Sunday of the month in Geneva free entry to all permanent and temporary exhibits in all city museums – 13 in total. Pick and choose among several exhibits around town.
