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.

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
