Fodor's Expert Review Cimetière du Bois-de-Vaux

Lausanne Cemetery

Always adorned with white flowers, as was her signature style, the grave of Coco Chanel lies within a large wooded cemetery park on the western edge of the city. Urban legend has it that Madame Chanel's beloved companion, her dog, is buried not far away in the pet cemetery on the grounds of the stately Beau-Rivage Palace. The cemetery is accessible by the No. 25 bus toward Bourdonnette, or the Nos. 1 and 6 toward Maladière.
