Petit Futé's opinion on HERMITAGE FOUNDATION

Plate millesim 2022

Both for the museum and the park, the Hermitage deserves twice its place in this top. Twice as many reasons to go there.

During your walk in the heart of the Sauvabelin Park, we strongly advise you to take the time to stop for a visit! This museum is housed in the beautiful mansion built in 1850 by the banker Charles-Juste Bugnion, in the heart of a large park with rare species. It welcomed the great bourgeoisie of Lausanne on the occasion of social events. In 1976, the Bugnion family donated their ancestral home and part of the park to the City of Lausanne. Two to three very popular exhibitions are organized there every year, devoted to fine arts, more particularly to Western art of the 19th and 20th centuries, and are accompanied by quality lectures. Works by Monet, Magritte and Van Gogh have been shown in recent years. In addition, the Fondation de l'Hermitage's collection now includes more than 600 works by Impressionist and Post-Impressionist painters as well as artists from the Canton of Vaud. A selection of this collection is regularly presented to the public alongside temporary exhibitions.

The Foundation's park : trees of rare species have been flourishing for decades in this magnificent park. We owe this beauty to Jeanne-Marie Bugnion, the wife of the first owner.

The bookstore area has beautiful art books; the restaurant L'Esquisse, located across the street from the museum, is very pleasant.

Animations: Sunday "Art and Brunch", guided tours for adults and children..

très bel endroit sur les hauteurs de Lausanne, dans un bois. on y est très bien accueilli, les photos sont autorisées, la vue du bâtiment sur la ville et le lac est magnifique, les œuvres d'art exposées aussi. il est facile de s'y rendre depuis l'office de tourisme par le métro et le bus 16 en 15 minutes, et de redescendre à pied dans Lausanne pour profiter de la ville.
