Sauvabelin Tower

Deep in the recesses of the Sauvabelin forest lies a modern, wood-built tower which affords a breathtaking view of the rolling Jura Mountains and glistening Lake Léman. Measuring 35 meters (115 feet), the distinctive tower takes its name from the surrounding forest. Although it serves a spectacular purpose, the structure itself is eye-catching, and its spiral staircase was inspired by the helical architecture found at the Chateau de Chambord in France. Fashioned out of Douglas firs sourced from local forests, this tower and its supporting institutions are greatly inclined towards sustainable development and environmental consciousness, and strive to radiate the same principles to visitors.

Freddie Mercury Statue

Erected in honour of one of rock and roll's most iconic frontmen, the legendary Freddy Mercury's gleaming bronze statue strikes his unforgettable triumphal pose along Les Planches' charming eastern waterfront. Freddy's association with Switzerland started when he became transfixed by the quaint alpine town of Montreux after recording an album there in 1978 with his band Queen. Affirming his love for the calm and quiet of his surroundings, the rocker also purchased a stately mansion that overlooked the tranquil waters of Lake Geneva. The city administration decided to repay his faith towards his adopted home after his demise by building him a 3-meter ( 9.8-feet) memorial statue in his memory that still shines as brightly today as it did in 1996.

Romainmotier Priory

Romainmotier Priory is a monastery founded by Romanus of Condat in the Canton of Vaud, explaining its namesake. Now an entry on the Swiss inventory of cultural property of national and regional significance, it once stood as a priory for monks of the Cluniac order. The rich history of the Romainmotier Priory begins around 450, from there traveling through medieval times, a 14th-century financial crisis, the Protestant Reformation, and two restorations from 1899 to 1915 and 1992 to 2000. In the summer, spring, and autumn, hymn concerts are conducted at the Romainmotier Priory, making it not only a historically significant attraction but also a cultural one.

Parc de l'Indépendance

Set overlooking the beautiful, pristine blue waters of the Lac Leman, the Parc de l'Indépendance offers a real treat for the senses. Flanked by the Château de Morges to the east and Au Parc to the west, with the city unfolding behind, this park features an impressive display of over 51 species of trees, including such gems as redwood trees, orchids, and elms. Some of the trees here date back to the mid-to-late 1700s, and are an ideal spot to lay underneath, indulge in some stargazing, or enjoy a picnic with the family. Call to know more.

Place Pestalozzi

A neighborhood located in the historic center of Yverdon-les-Bain, Place Pestalozzi is the embodiment of everything Swiss with its cobblestone pathways, quaint cafes, local eateries and medieval buildings. Every moment spent here is a vision straight out of a picture postcard, which is exactly why this place is popular with tourists throughout the year.

Reformed Church of Saint-Symphorien

Reformed Church of Saint-Symphorien is a relatively newer building, constructed in the 16th century. But the original parish dates back to the 6th century, hailing from a village called Glerula. This village was destroyed by a giant wave and its ruins can still be seen beneath the church. Moreover, the stained glass windows and the picturesque bell tower adds to the church's historical significance.
