Switzerland’s stunning city of Lausanne is eager to welcome travellers from the GCC to the sixth edition of its highly anticipated Lausanne Jardins, taking place from June 15 to October 12, 2019.
The summer-long event guides guests on a scenic journey through approximately thirty contemporary embedded gardens on a route including city streets, squares, neglected plots, buildings’, facades, and roofs. The breathtaking landscapes are pieces taken from an international competition, with one exclusive landscape exhibition being designed by global gardener, Gilles Clément.
Every five years, Lausanne reconnects with the soil, and this year is no different, with the theme being ‘Open Ground’. During this period, Lausanne is showcased in a unique light with illuminating hues of poetry and playfulness, that harmoniously educates the audience on unforgettable themes surrounding the landscapes.
Following the garden path of exploration from Western to Eastern Lausanne, guests will assimilate fascinating information about the soil and its qualities, and the manner in which wealth is found in trees, mossy outcrops and gardens. Visitors of all ages will have something to learn and enjoy with the provision of numerous activities, creative and scientific workshops, thematic visits, and even the featuring of a lavish water fountain that serves to remind guests of the underground presence of the liquid element.
Director – GCC markets, Lausanne Tourism, Walter Loser illustrated: “The Lausanne Jardins is a remarkable cultural event that encourages everyone to come and dig their toes into the soil this summer, with a marvelous showcasing of such lavish and beautiful landscapes. Families and friends can embark on this memorable journey that only takes place every few years.”
With picturesque backdrops of charming towns and stunning lakes, this interactive approach of Lausanne Jardins allows for the beautiful landscapes to come to life for its visitors by offering an extraordinary and unforgettable surface tour of the underground.
