Morges castle

Morges, the flower of Lake Geneva

Although the castle and mediaeval town date back to 13th century, UNESCO-listed Morges was already inhabited in Neolithic times.

Morges grew up on the shores of Lake Geneva opposite the magnificent Mont-Blanc. Its pedestrian Grand Rue, in the heart of the old town, is home to thriving markets and shops, where restaurants serve the fine wines of appellation Vins de Morges.

Dominating the Grand Rue and the port, Morges Castle is home to the Vaudois Military Museum, Artillery Museum and Swiss Museum of Historical Figurines as well as the Musée de la Gendarmerie.

Every year, the Tulip Festival celebrates the return of spring with over 100,000 tulips in spectacularly colourful borders in the 30,000 m2 Parc de l'Indépendance. The floral displays continue in May, at Vullierens Castle, with 400 varieties of iris. In the summer, the Quai des Dahlias brings colour to the Morges lakeshore where “La Liberté” is moored, the only Mediterranean galley on Lake Geneva, launched in 2002.

For a day out in the country, the Bière-Apples-Morges railway line invites you to sample local rural specialities.
