Until the 18th century Sauvabelin was a wasteland where cattle roamed free. However, a lot of landscaping work was carried out at Sauvabelin after 1858 to make it as attractive as it is today. It became a great success with the construction of the lake and restaurant, and the inauguration of the Lausanne-Signal funicular, which is now closed.
Sauvabelin Tower offers incomparable views from a height of 35 metres.
You can also enjoy the nature reserve and the animals, and even a boat ride on the lake.
