It was ok but maybe because of the bad weather I was not so impressed. It was easy to reach with the bus, it stopped less than 5 minutes away from the tower. Also it looks very high but going upstairs was not so exhausting. Entrance is free but check the closing hours as there is a door which you open with a button, perhaps after the working hours the button stops working. There were many families playing with children by the lake and forest nearby.

Interesting tower to walk up. Approx 150 steps up and at the top a wonderful view over the city of Lausanne and the lake Leman. The tower is a wooden structure and worth the hike up for the view at the top

The view at the tower is lovely - over the city and surrounding area, as well as the lake and snow covered mountains. The construction details are also interesting. I found it a challenging climb, but I succeeded. If taking public transportation, make sure to take the right bus.

This was a great surprise as it is one of the few free things to do!!

the view from the top of the tower is wonderful, it's also really unique tour with a two-way staircase.

you catch the number 16 bus up and it takes you down a different route , so you get to see a whole lot of the city as well.

There is playgrounds, walks and views, you cant swim in the lake, but there is barbecue facilities and chairs and tables and Cafe.
