Very nice wooden structure. The stairs are steep but the climb is definitely worth it. On a sunny day you can see tens of kilometres away. The entrance is free but the steep climb is definitely not for everybody.

Great view across Lausanne, the lake Geneva and the Alpes. Free entrance, but beware, you have to climb up ;)

It was ok but maybe because of the bad weather I was not so impressed. It was easy to reach with the bus, it stopped less than 5 minutes away from the tower. Also it looks very high but going upstairs was not so exhausting. Entrance is free but check the closing hours as there is a door which you open with a button, perhaps after the working hours the button stops working. There were many families playing with children by the lake and forest nearby.

Interesting tower to walk up. Approx 150 steps up and at the top a wonderful view over the city of Lausanne and the lake Leman. The tower is a wooden structure and worth the hike up for the view at the top
