Culture to experience and share
The museums and the region's cultural and heritage sites offer many opportunities of discovery and exchange.
The largest museums of the city of Morges can be found in the medieval castle and in other magnificent heritage sites. They tell the story of the region, its inhabitants and artists. The lively exhibitions create unique experiences to be shared. Encounters and interactivity are the focus of other cultural sites in the region, such as the innovative Fondation Jan Michalski in Montricher, the bucolic Arboretum in Aubonne, the oil mill of Sévery and the impressive castle of La Sarraz.
Thanks to its inhabitants’ creativity, a series of unique events are held in Morges each year.
Morges, the Flower of Lake Geneva, and its region are renowned for its flower shows, one of which is the famous Tulip Festival. To the delight of visitors, the parks of the town and the surrounding region burst into colourful bloom every spring, while the comedy festival Morges-sous-Rire transforms the town into the capital of humour, the lakeside book fair features the authors currently in vogue, Divinum serves the best wines from here and elsewhere and UNIcréa exhibits the creative arts.
Treasures on each plate and in each glass
Morges enjoys an ideal location between Lake Geneva, the vineyards and the countryside, which is reflected in its delicious terroir products.
Lake Geneva supplies fine fish - above all perch - to the fishermen of Morges who prepare them with skill. The restaurant owners in and around Morges make fine dishes with them. They are best enjoyed with regional vintages. Whites such as Chasselas and reds such as Pinot Noir are the most widespread, but the nearby vineyards also supply several delicious specialties, while the nearby countryside provides first-rate meats, vegetables and terroir products.
Visitors enjoy the large open spaces from Lake Geneva to the Jura foothills to do sports or simply for contemplation.

Located between Lausanne and Geneva, the Morges and Nyon regions are both cosmopolitan and authentic. Many international companies and schools have opted to locate in these towns close to Lake Geneva. They have developed business tourism and offer a complete change of scene.
Just a few kilometres from Geneva airport, La Côte has attracted several international schools and enterprises to the region. Morges, Nyon and their surroundings are now cosmopolitan while retaining their authentic appeal.
By the shores of Lake Geneva and on the La Côte hillside vineyards, facilities for holding seminars, conferences or team building sessions have flourished. In this exceptional environment – including in some truly historic buildings – the Château de Prangins, the Portes des Iris, Casino de Morges, etc. – companies can access comfort, technology and inspiration essential for their work sessions.
In the largest vineyard of the Canton of Vaud, business people combine work with an exploration of Grand Crus at a vineyard or in the famous viticulture training school at Changins. Other sports activities – on Lake Geneva in summer or wearing snow racquets in winter - make La Côte the perfect place for corporate outings and incentive trips.
