A new walk in the footsteps of Audrey Hepburn and Ignace Paderewksi

Apr 16, 2021

A route accessible for everyone for discovering the charm of Tolochenaz, this neighbour to Morges that so appealed to the actress and the pianist.

Four kilometres in length and with 11 points of interest, the walk – available free of charge in English, French and German on the Morges: Guide app – starts on Place Audrey Hepburn at the centre of the village. From here, it takes visitors past various sites that were touched by the lives of the two artists. The actress’s home and the pretty church where her funeral was held, for example, as well as the pavilion that bears her name, with a mural created in her memory. Ignace Paderewski and his wife were great lovers of nature, and the path also takes in the home of their gardener, the dovecote and a park that was part of the couple’s land. Plenty of spots full of charm to explore the area from a new perspective. The trail ends at the water's edge, at the Maison de la Rivière on the Boiron river that runs through the village. The walk can be enjoyed in any season, and the app can provide guidance as well as cultural information.
