Nyon Roman Museum

Nyon, town of history and festivals

Between Lake Geneva and La Côte AOC vineyard, the town of Nyon is known for its festivals, history and business tourism.

Overlooking Lake Geneva and in the heart of La Côte AOC vineyard, Nyon has a lot going for it.

Events are part of this town’s way of life: in July, 240,000 people come for 6 days of concerts at the Paléo Festival, while other festival-goers flock to Les Hivernales, Visions du Réel, Caribana or far° (festival of living arts).

Nyon’s castles and museums evoke a noble history, with Prangins Castle, the Swiss National Museum, Coppet Castle, Nyon Castle and the History and Porcelain Museum, while the Roman Museum tells the story of Noviodunum, founded by Julius Caesar.

Tintin, the comic book hero, comes to Nyon to search for Professor Cuthbert Calculus. You can learn all about Auguste Piccard, the scientist who was the inspiration behind Cuthbert, at the Musée du Léman.

The Nyon–St-Cergue–La Cure railway line runs from the town to the countryside and the mountains for days out in beautiful natural scenery.
