Arboretum of the Vallon de l'Aubonne

On the heights of the vineyard of La Côte, between Morges and Nyon, 200 hectares of enchantment await you at the Arboretum. This landscaped park features more than 3000 trees from temperate climates around the world. An informative and magical walk !

Unique in Switzerland, the Arboretum pursues scientific, educational and recreational objectives. More than 3000 trees of temperate ecosystems from all over the world - Europe, Japan, USA... - flourish in the green Vallon de l'Aubonne. Walkers have a choice of several circuits zigzagging between trees and shrubs, river and pond. Didactic panels for learning and picnic places to relax enhance this pleasant nature excursion for the whole family.

Just as Morges has its tulips and the Riviera has its narcissus, the Arboretum has an impressive collection of cherry and magnolia trees that bloom in March and April every year.

In addition to the pleasure of the eyes, the Arboretum works for the survival of the species, for example by maintaining an orchard of yesteryear, where apple and rose trees are particularly well cared for.

The visitor centre and its exhibitions, as well as the Wood Museum, provide valuable additional information on all aspects of arboriculture. Guided tours are organized on Sundays in summer and on request.

The Arboretum also welcomes you for your private or professional events. 5 locations are at your disposal to best meet your needs.
