The Morges Tulip Festival takes place every year - this year's theme is "Numbers and Letters" and will be from 18 March to 8 May 2022. The Parc de l'Indépendance de Morges becomes a fully flowering park where you can wander at your ease around the colorful flowerbeds. This year the festival boasts its 52 edition! A spectacular view of Lake Geneva and the Mont Blanc is fronted by an abundance of flowers that will make every photo a winner.

You can now take advantage of the amazing weather among the tulips and of course the famous bulb sale mid-May (see below). The park is open daily and remember that Sunday, 8 May is Mother's Day in Switzerland.

The festival takes place on the shores of Lake Geneva, between the Château de Morges and the river La Morges. The Parc de l'Indépendance offers, in all seasons, a magnificent grassy setting and presents 50 varieties of trees such as impressive chestnut trees or giant sequoias. It is only a few meters from the historic city center, the CGN boat dock, restaurants, and shops.
