lausanne postal codes map
 
I can not find a useful web site which shows the postal code areas in lausanne. I am not sure if 1004 is really a post code though. For example, I don't know is 1010 far from EPFL or not? Or where is 1007?

thanks for any feedback

punch any of the post codes into Google, ( preceded by "ch-" ) and you'll get an image of where that post code is, or the area it covers.

Great trick!

Is there a map that shows all post codes though?

I found this map on the Swiss Post site:
http://www.post.ch/en/post-pickpost-standorte.htm Just click on PickPost Points and you can zoom in and hover over each post office for the postal code. Not exactly what you're looking for, but can give you an idea of where each postal code is.

Click on "Search for PickPost points", it opens a map, and you can zoom into Lausanne.

Ok Gata here we go. We will do better than just Lausanne. Here is the map for ALL of CH.

Link: http://www.cadastre.ch/internet/cada...ducts/plz.html

The starting point is Bern so you need to zoom out and move the map around to get to another city (i.e. Lausanne). Then you can zoom in and you will get the overlay of the postal numbers on the map. Move it around as you need it.

:D:D:D

Re: lausanne postal codes map
 
Now that we are here, does anybody know the story behind the "irregular" Lausanne post codes of 1000 Lausanne 25, 1000 Lausanne 26, and 1000 Lausanne 27, and why are they north of the city, unlike their subsequent areas which are in the centre?

I guess they have been created later than the others, maybe after some commune joined Lausanne, but where do the numbers 25-27 come from?

Re: lausanne postal codes map
 
First here a new link to a postal code map
https://map.geo.admin.ch/?lang=en&to...9350.00&zoom=1

and here a link where you can search based on street and town name
https://www.post.ch/en/pages/plz-suche

Normally the Structure 1000 Lausanne XY, would indicate a P/O Boxes at the a Lausanne Post Office. 1000 Lausanne 14 for example is the post office at the federal court https://places.post.ch/poi/Post-offi...T_001114504/de

If we look on this map https://places.post.ch only 1000 Lausanne 26 has its own post office. 25 and 26 do not have one.

Here a map which shows the boundary of the commune Lausanne.
https://map.geo.admin.ch/?ch.swissto...9708.37&zoom=5

As we see 1000 Lausanne 25, ... , 1000 Lausanne 26 are part of the actual town but far away from the center. I assume this distinction with the extra number is so that letters and parcel get routed by the fastest way without detours, and also maybe because some street names inside 1000 Lausanne 25, ... , 1000 Lausanne 26 can also be found in 1000 Lausanne area.
