Culture et Patrimoine
Visitors to Yverdon-les-Bains are charmed by its laid-back lifestyle, thermal spas, rich history and culture.
The second city of the canton of Vaud, Yverdon-les-Bains will astonish you with its diversity. Located in the heart of the city, its castle houses the Museum of Yverdon and the Swiss Fashion Museum. The Maison d'Ailleurs, a museum dedicated to science fiction and extraordinary journeys, and the Centre d'Art Contemporain (CACY) are just some of the sights to be seen on Place Pestalozzi, one of French-speaking Switzerland’s most attractive paved squares.
Go for a stroll along the shores of Lake Neuchâtel, just a stone's throw from the historic centre of Yverdon-les-Bains. Discover fine sandy beaches, a line of 45 standing stones or the largest lakeside marsh in Switzerland, the Grande Cariçaie. The Pro Natura Centre in Champ-Pittet showcases the richness of this natural reserve, which is home to a quarter of Switzerland's fauna and flora.
Yverdon-les-Bains hosts many events every year, including the Numerik Games Festival, dedicated to digital culture.
