Ouchy, the Olympic Museum and Museé de l’Elysée

Ouchy’s waterfront hosts regular free music events all summer, and people come down here to do a spot of café sunbathing or blading (rent blades or skates from beside Ouchy metro). In a waterfront park just to the east sits Lausanne’s vacuous Olympic Museum, which is closed for renovations until end of 2013 – bypass it for the Musée de l’Elysée, an excellent photography museum in the same park.
