This tower built in local massive wood with an environmentally friendly approach allows everybody to watch the wonderful panoramic view above Lausanne. The 302 steps of the Sauvabelin tower are sponsored by many local companies and will allow you to access safely the panoramic platform after an invigorating effort.
