Inspirock Rating:
4.3/5 based on 300+ reviews on the web
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. To visit Sauvabelin Tower on your trip to Lausanne, use our Lausanne trip itinerary planner.

  • I find that this tour has been a remarkable project. In addition to offering an exceptional view, it was made with wood of the region. And it's free! In short, nothing wrong, if cameras that spoil the Scots atmosphere a little...

  • Too bad the tower was closed when we went on a Sunday but from outside, it looked very commanding yet welcoming. It was a long walk going to this point from the train station, but the path going here was great for walking. The park had only a few visitors, mostly people walking their dogs. What struck is that the nearby lake that was supposed to be here was all dried up and was surrounded with construction work. It would've been a wonderful visit.
  • It was an amazing walk up towards the tower. Also the view from the tower is brilliant. Its a must Go!
  • It has a great view of the lake and city! Great workout getting to the top!
  • It's like a million status to heaven! So calm and pretty. Loved the view worth the exercise!
  • I want to see this tower but due to maintenance it was closed but according to height and other factors I can imagine the view from tower. I have added few pictures for this and in future if I go again then I'll update my review.
