UNTIL THE 5TH OF MAY don’t miss the fabulous Tulip Festival in Morges
Spend a day in Morges enjoying the lake walk with stunning views over Lake Geneva with the mountain backdrop and the amazing display of tulips directly on the shore of the lake in Parc de L’Independence. This exceptional site opposite the Alps last for six weeks and presents more then 120.000 tulips of 300 varieties. The first varieties start blooming now and every week you will find other colours and and shapes. The festival was first created on the occasion of the 50 years of the Lake Geneva Horticultural Society on 1971 and since then the apprentices of the Morges Centre for Professional Studies create several banks of tulips every year. The park itself is beautiful as it hosts several monuments and some remarkable trees, which recall the celebrations of the independence of the Lake Geneva region in 1898.
