Lavaux vineyards, UNESCO World Heritage
The terraced vineyards of Lavaux site unfold above Lake Geneva for some 14 kilometres, forming a real link between Lausanne and Vevey-Montreux. Not only does the listed status of Lavaux as a UNESCO World Heritage site pay tribute to an age-old vineyard, it is also a living “cultural landscape”, a remarkable testimony to an authentic and dynamic civilisation.
SwissTech Convention Center
Since April 2014, the Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne (EPFL) has opened the SwissTech Convention Center, new ultramodern venue that is adaptable even in its smallest details, and particularly suitable for housing conferences, exhibitions and symposia of international scope.
The largest freshwater lake in Europe – and certainly the most romantic, having inspired countless artists – captivates the eye. Lending itself as much to barbecues on the beach as dinners on board the steamships that crisscross its waters, it offers every possible aquatic pleasure: sailing, waterskiing, wakeboarding, pedalos.
It presents animals through a totally immersive and interactive scenography using innovative digital technologies. More than an aquarium or a vivarium, AQUATIS is an exceptional journey through our planet’s most fascinating freshwater environments. It is a recreational area, a pole of environmental education and a platform for exchanges.
Experience the magic of freshwater thanks to :
• A journey of 3500 m2
• 46 aquariums/vivariums/terrariums
• 10 000 fishes
• 100 reptiles and amphibians
Freshwater is key to the message that AQUATIS wishes to communicate. It will of course determine the pace of the tour that has been designed like the life cycle of a drop of water as it travels around the world. AQUATIS invites visitors to dive head first into an immersive trip around the five continents to discover the main freshwater ecosystems and their flora and fauna.
