This magical spot, with its waterside animal park (cows, pigs, sheep, goats, peacocks and birds) and rustic restaurant surrounded by centuries-old oak forests, is only a bus ride away from Lausanne's shopping streets.
This artificial lake, excavated in 1889, used to be served by a cable railway and was an extremely popular tourist attraction. It is still a favourite family venue for the Lausanne people.
Boat rentals on Sauvabelin Lake stop mid-October and during Winter. They usually start again on the Easter week-end weather permitting.
