Nothing stand out in the forest other than the tower, but a very peaceful area with great paths and natural landscapes. There are carved statues that are always cool to see, and definitely climb to the top of the tower to get a panoramic view...More

A jungle near the heart of the city-Lausanne. A nice trekking area very close to the Lausanne CBD with a all-wooden tower. You need to climb this 450 step tower to get a bird's eye view of the city. Consumes some time, though. Definitely recommended...More

Lovely forest full of healthy trees and wildlife. There are interesting structures made of wood for the kids to climb around on and swings. We enjoyed a long walk with plenty to look at. Good for picnic or you can find a restaurant.

Very nice and calm forest north of Lausanne. From up there you can walk around a little lake where animals wont be far away from you. In summer you can even go srowing on the lake. It is something very to do with childrens.

I expected a nice forest, nature, good tracks and a beautiful view on the lake and the city. But it isn't actually a forest, it is more a city park. The few paths are not very spectacular, the little lake was empty, the tower was...More

It's a great place for kids. They can feed the ducks on the lake, watch the pigs, cows, rabbits and other animals. The playground is also quite nice,with a section for the smaller kids.
