To know when to go to Lausanne, you have to take into account the tourist seasons that regulate your year. The high season extends from mid-May to mid-September, when the weather is more favourable and Europeans are on holiday. But if you go to Lausanne from the end of November to mid-April, you should know that the Lake Geneva region is also very attractive because of its proximity to the ski slopes and its Christmas markets such as the one in Montreux, which is known beyond the borders. If music and stage art enthusiasts will say that the best time to go to Lausanne is during the festival season (Montreux Jazz Festival, Montreux Comedy Festival...), it is important to take into account that prices can rise very quickly and availability can become rare. So when to go to Lausanne? Hotel rates are more accessible in low season and Lausanne and the Swiss Riviera are just as pleasant to visit as in the middle of summer. If you still choose July and August, take a look at the region's cultural agenda to avoid unpleasant surprises when you arrive!
