Set in the Parc de L’independence, just behind the beautiful Château in Morges, the annual Fête de la Tulipe starts this weekend and runs from 1st April to the 14th May. This leaves ample time for the different species of tulips (approximately 300 in total) to bloom (very much weather permitting, as cold weather can often delay this). In addition to 120,000 tulips on display, other spring bulbs such as daffodils and hyacinths can also be seen at this beautiful lakeside setting.
Morges is situated in the western part of Switzerland between Lausanne and Geneva. The city was build by Louis de Savoie in 1286.
The castle in the south of the town square was built with a square floor plan and four round corner towers. It resembles the castle of Yverdon, which may have served as a model for Morges Castle.
On of the beautiful place to walk is the lake promenade. You can see the Mont Blanc
The city’s annual Tulip Festival celebrates the return of spring with 100,000 tulips in beds remarkable for their colour, in the 30,000m2 of the Parc de l’Indépendance.
