360° views open up multiple vistas from the top of this 35-metre-high tower, which was built in 2003: you can view the Lausanne conurbation, Lake Geneva and the three geographic regions of Switzerland - the Alps, the Jura and the Plateau.
This tower was built of wood, principally Douglas fir obtained from local forests. This is just one of many examples of how Lausanne is a city adept at sustainable development.
A maximum of 30 people at same time, for security reasons. Access is limited by an automatic gate at the entrance. In case of bad weather and safety conditions (strong wind, snow or ice), the tower is closed.
Bus 16: «Signal» or «Lac de Sauvabelin» stops
