Course Venue

Lausanne, the second-largest city on Lake Geneva, combines a dynamic commercial town with the locality of a holiday resort. The capital of the canton of Vaud is also a lively university and convention town.

The setting of Lausanne is extremely picturesque: the town is built on three hills, surrounded by vineyard-covered slopes, with Lake Geneva at its feet. Rising impressively from the opposing French lakeshore are the Savoy Alps. The attractive old town is largely car-free. Small alleyways with cafes and boutiques shape the streetscape in the medieval city centre.

A small city, and one of the greenest in Europe, Lausanne was named “best small city in the world” (fewer than 200,000 inhabitants) by the prestigious Monocle magazine.

The «Olympic capital» is home to the International Olympic Committee and also the Olympic Museum, the world’s largest information centre about the Olympic Games, in which this year’s Course on Cardiovascular Evaluation of Olympic Athletes will be held.
