Located at a dozen kilometres from Lausanne, Morges is a lakeside town offering pleasant living conditions. Throughout the year, walkers appreciate its lakeside promenades and cobbled streets which, in winter, look like out of a fairy tale book. Epicureans delight in the countless gourmet addresses and the excellent wines from La Côte AOC.
With its medieval castle, the shores of Lake Geneva and the view of Mont-Blanc, Morges boasts one of the region’s most charming winter landscapes. Today, the castle plays host to five museums: the Vaudois Military Museum, the Swiss Museum of Historical Figurines, the Museum of Artillery, the Museum of the Vaudois Police and the Paderewski Museum, all of them open from March to the end of November. Other cultural venues are dedicated to famous guests such as the actress Audrey Hepburn.
In winter, visitors enjoy walking along the town's cobbled streets, whereas skaters imprint their most beautiful figures on the covered skating rink of Eaux-Minérales. Located twenty kilometres from Morges, on Col de Mollendruz, visitors can enjoy cross-country and snowshoeing on specially laid-out tracks.
Winter is not only a convivial season but also the ideal moment to discover the best gastronomic and typical restaurants of Morges and the regional wines from the La Côte AOC vineyard.
