The castle and medieval town date back to the 13th century, however Morges was already inhabited during the neolithic time. Its archeological remains are inscribed on the UNESCO list.
The town of Morges is situated between Lausanne and Geneva, on the lake shore, with view on the majestic Mont Blanc. Its pedestrian zone, in the heart of the old town, hosts several markets and shops, as well as restaurants where you can taste great wines of the Morges vins denomination. The castle of Morges, located close to the Grand Rue and the port, houses the Military Museum, the Artillery Museum, the historical figurine Museum and the Gendarmerie Museum.
Every year in springtime, the Tulip Festival takes place in Morges. More than 100'000 colourful tulips compose magnificent flowerbeds and spread across the 30'000 sqm Parc de l'Indépendance. Later in May, the Floralies take place at the Château de Vuillierens, where you can admire more than 400 species of lilies. In summer, dahlias decorate the quays of Morges. Near the waterfront you can admire the ancient boat "Liberté", put back into the lake in 2002.
