For sports enthusiasts: the Olympic Museum
The Olympic Games have had an inspirational effect on humanity since ancient times. The origins of the Olympic idea go back to antiquity, when the games still had a religious background. The modern games were introduced at the end of the 19th century. Since then, their importance has continued to grow. To document this development, a museum dedicated entirely to the Olympic Games was established in Lausanne. Visitors will find a myriad of interesting facts surrounding the Olympic movement. Fascinating contemporary documents, film excerpts and valuable artefacts are on display. The museum is interactive, and the latest technology lets visitors experience the Olympic concept up-close. This museum is a definite must-see – one which your seminar participants are sure to love!
