Sauvabelin Tower, Lausanne

4.5
Ascend Sauvabelin Tower for superb views of the city and its picturesque backdrop. This wooden tower boasts a height of 35 m (115 ft), enabling visitors to see high above the trees of the surrounding forest. To reach the top, you will have to tackle 302 steps, most of which bear a plaque of local companies that sponsored the tower's construction in 2003. Although a sturdy handrail runs the entire length of the spiral staircase, it can be a daunting endeavor for those uncomfortable with heights. Make sure to bring your camera to snap the views of the city, Lake Leman, and the nearby mountains.

  • The place, easy to reach even by means, offers a simple and relaxing walk. The tower is curious and scenic, but it is certainly not an absolute wonder. Low-interest attraction.

  • Beautiful view from the top of the tower. Very nice park with a mini farm with pond. Pleasant family moment in perspective if you liked nature

  • It's a must visit place in Lausanne. The walk to the tower is through a mini zoo and forest. The walkway is pretty well laid and is accessible for wheelchairs. The view of the city is quite a sight, especially during sunset. The stairs although seem more but are easy to climb because of the way they are structured. This place can be visited anytime of the year.
  • Nice place for picnic. There is lake and park. Some of Swiss animals. It's good for parents to teach their children to know animals in one picnic place
