The Tower of Sauvabelin is a local massive wood tower built in 2003. It allows to have a wonderful panoramic view above Lausanne and the lake, from Geneva to Montreux.
Access the tower either with a car by driving up to Sauvabelin wood or (better) with the bus TL no 16 stopping at "Signal".
A great walk to do is to go up by foot starting at Place de la Borde, Place de la Barre, The Hermitage estate, The Fondation de l'Hermitage, the former home of David Bowie and finally the Sauvabelin Tower.
