Morges - Tulip Festival (April to mid-May)

Every year since 1971, the town of Morges has been decked out in its most beautiful colours for the Tulip Festival during the spring. The Independence Park, the quays and the whole town host more than 140,000 flowers (tulips but also narcissi, hyacinths and crocuses) and about 300 different varieties of tulips. All kinds of activities complete this great floral show, adding the enchantment of harmonies to the symphony of colours. This magnificent festival, which has become unmissable, is organised by the Morges Fleur du Léman association, which also organises the Dahlia Festival.

Vullierens Castle

Château de Vullierens (April to end of August)

Just 10 minutes from Morges, the Jardins du Château de Vullierens are unique in Switzerland. The Château is the invaluable guardian of a garden of over 30 hectares, in which more than 400 varieties bloom from mid-May to early June. At the height of the season, an incomparable 4-hectare mosaic is made up of thousands of flowers (late tulips, rhododendrons, hyacinths, peonies, irises, alliums, roses, daylilies, etc.). Theme walks, a sculpture park and a bridle path lined with historic trees (redwoods, oaks and tulip trees) add to the pleasure.
Pléiades - Narcisses

Montreux Riviera - Narcissi (May)

From April to May, wild narcissi cover the meadows above Montreux and Vevey. This natural phenomenon, also known as "May snow", is best admired on individual or guided walks along marked trails. As soon as the snow melts, narcissus leaves emerge from the ground and take advantage of the energy stored in their bulbs to bloom early. Discover these narcissus-covered landscapes with educational trails from the village of Les Avants, the Pléiades, Glion, Caux and Mont-Pèlerin railway stations.

Balades printemps Arboretum

Arboretum of the Aubonne valley - cherry trees and magnolias (March to early June)

Magnolias and cherry trees are one of the highlights of the Arboretum du Vallon de l'Aubonne, flowering from mid-March to the end of April, and sometimes as late as June for some species. There are almost 200 different varieties of magnolia in the park, as well as over 100 different species and varieties of cherry and plum trees. Many of these trees are cultivated for their fruit or for their ornamental value, such as the famous Japanese cherry trees. Immerse yourself in a unique green park!
