Nice walk through the park and then the steep climb to the top of the tower. This is a nice activity to do with the family or even in the context of a business visit with foreigners. The view of Lausanne and all around is just breath-taking, especially in clear days.

Take the 16 bus from Lausanne Bel-Air or St-François to reach the park. The tower is indicated next to the small lake. If you have no fear of high tower you have to try it!

Beautiful view of Lake Geneva & surrounding mountains. Break away from the busy city centre & climb to the top of this wood structure, free access!

This is a tower located little outside of the city inside a nature park. The tower architecture is interesting and on a clear day one could see whole lausanne and even geneva from the tower.

From the top of the tower there is an amazing view of the lake and Alps as well as Lausanne and the surrounding area. I came in Autumn so we got there after a nice walk through the orange woods. It's right by the Sauvabelin lake and petting zoo which is great from kids, and there's a cafe for when... More

This tower is a nice place to visit and especially for teenagers it's great to walk up the stairs and have a great view. Close by there is a nice forest to walk.

Lovely park with a strange tower in the middle - great to climb up - be aware it gets windy near the top and its quite open, so I wouldnt let very small children climb
