“Good Views Outside Lausanne”
Reviewed September 6, 2013

A must for those who prefer to walk. The bus stops are either at Lac Sauvabelin or Signal, both requiring a short walk or a hike depending on the route you take. It's impressive on close up as it is made up of wood. The views are really breathtaking, a 360-degree view of the city of Lausanne. Well worth the effort in getting there. By the way, it's free.

“Keep the kids busy”
Reviewed August 4, 2013

Great part of nature, loads to do with the kids: walk round the forest, look at the animals, play park, go up the tower for the amazing view.
Free car park and a restaurant, otherwise, you can also choose to have a picnic.
You can also hire a boat and go the little lake

“Close to the city, but peaceful”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

If you wanna escape for a while, taste a bit of nature, you have to go to the tour and the forest of Sauvabelin. A lake close to the tour is good to visite on the same way..!
Enjoy, i love this place

“Great view and workout to get up on top”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

The view over the city and the lake is very nice, while the wooden structure offers a different experience when it comes to going up -- stable mind you!

“At one with nature”
Reviewed June 4, 2013

Great place to visit on a Sunday afternoon. I didn't go all the way to the top but the view is still great halfway up :)
