avenue Juste-Olivier 11
Built in the 16th Century, the Town Hall has been the pivotal point of civic life in Lausanne since that time. The building is composed of three floors. At ground level are the arcades, the first floor has impressive windows and the second floor shorter bays topped off by a large sloping roof typical of Vaudois architecture/countryside. A point of interest is the beautiful ceiling painting found on the first floor, dating back to the 17th century. Although no official tour is provided you are free to walk around. Information is available on the first floor.
