Directions to KPMG’s Lausanne office

Walk from the station (10 to 15 minutes)
  • Walk down Avenue de la Gare (on your right as you leave the station).
  • After just over 300 yards, BEFORE the major bus junction (“Georgette”), turn left down Rue Charles-Monnard.
  • Follow this road as it crosses Rue Beau-Séjour.
  • Rue Charles-Monnard joins Avenue du Théâtre at a T-junction, and number 1 is located opposite a bit further on.

 

By bus from the station (10 to 15 minutes)

  • Outside the station, take bus number 1 (toward Blécherette) as far as Georgette (second stop from the station).
  • Cross Avenue de Rumine and then turn left across Avenue de Villamont. Number 1 Avenue du Théâtre is several tens of yards further on (walking toward Place St. François), after the “Jardin d’Asie” Chinese restaurant.

 

By car – Bellefontaine parking lot

  • KPMG does not have any parking spaces for visitors. You can park in the Bellefontaine parking lot.
  • From the Geneva-Lausanne highway, come off at the Lausanne-Sud exit.
  • At the Maladière roundabout, take the exit for “Centre – Gare” (“center – station”). Go past Lausanne station and continue along Avenue de la Gare.
  • At the major junction, carry straight on for just over 50 yards (Rue de la Bellefontaine heading toward Bern); the parking lot is on your left.
  • There are two pedestrian exits; take the one marked “Georgette”. From Georgette, all you need to do is walk to the junction and cross Avenue du Théâtre (called Avenue de Rumine on your right); KPMG is less than 100 yards away on your left.
