Sauvabelin is a forest overlooking Lausanne. In 1888 the city of Lausanne authorized the construction of the artificial lake in Sauvabelin forest. Almost immediately after the construction of the little romantic lake, Sauvbelin had become very popular picnic place ? the citizens of Lausanne take Sunday walks there, in winter they come to skate, in the summer they spend time in the rented rowing boats on the lake? Lac de Sauvabelin ? Lake Sauvbelin is approximately 100 m wide and 150 m long, deep between 1 m and 1.5 m, with an island in the center.

Probably the most interesting area for the children is tiny ZOO with cows, goats, woolly pigs, ducks, geese, swans?

Although beautiful place, Sauvabelin forest and lake surrounding is not among the top tourist attractions in Lausanne. This "face" of Lausanne is reserved for those travelers who spend a bit more time in the city.

Lake Sauvbelin can be easily reached by Public transport ? bus #16.
