Fête au Flon – Terre des hommes, 8 May 2010

I was dropping my daughter off at her babysitter’s today and ran across a flyer that might interest you. Terre de hommes is celebrating their 25th anniversary in Lausanne and their 50th anniversary in Switzerland on May 8th. They are hosting the ‘Fête au Flon’ that Saturday from 10-18h in the Esplanade du Flon. Entry is free and there will be food and drinks for purchase as well as a Sentier-Concours (the best translation I could come up with this is game booths, like at a carnival, where you can win prizes). There will also be concerts, clowns, a cicurs and ‘Hip Hop’.

I tried to find out more info on the Flon Events page but they weren’t very helpful. But, it still seems like a fun outing for a family. The program flyer can be downloaded here.

Silhouette Lausanne – Gym/Fitness Center with Childcare

Summer in Lausanne means barbecues, lots of Mövenpick ice cream and ice-cold coffee treats to beat the heat and humidity hitting the city. If you are like me and indulging in some (or all) of the above, maybe you are feeling a little bit guilty about all the goodies you’ve been tucking away. And, if you are like me maybe you are not as motivated to get moving and sweating in this sticky, warm weather.


Luckily, there are a number of gyms/fitness centers in the area that can get you going in relative comfort and maybe you can treat yourself to a cool swim afterwards. Silhouette is a gym here in Lausanne that offers childcare so you can get you workout and not have to worry about finding someone to watch your little one.

Their website (available in English!!) says their crèche “provides the possibility to train in complete tranquility while your child is placed in the care of certified staff.”
