On the hills above Lausanne, Sauvabelin Park is a popular destination with families and nature lovers close to the city. With farm and forest animals, walks and boat trips and panoramic views over the city and Lake Geneva, it has many attractions to offer visitors.
Still in the town and yet already in the countryside, the Sauvabelin Tower and Viewpoint offer walkers spectacular views of the surrounding area. Further along, visitors can explore Sauvabelin Lake among the oak trees and wander around the delightful animal park with its goats, woolly pigs, ducks, boar and various birds, roaming free or in enclosures.
Sauvabelin Park also offers lots of tasty treats to enjoy with a real Swiss chalet, a little forest cafe with local produce and a restaurant dipping its feet in the lake (reopening in 2016).
