The Stunning & Colourful Annual Tulip Festival in Morges Switzerland
“NUMBERS AND LETTERS” 18th March to 8th May 2022
Every Spring, the “Parc de l’Indépendance“ on the shore of Lake Geneva in Morges hosts a stunning and very colourful FREE event. It’s the annual Tulip Festival which lasts for seven weeks.
Tulip Festival Morge 2021 From 18th March – 8th May
Around 145,000 tulips from 275 different varieties will be blooming from 18th March to 8th May in the flower beds of the park which is located next to the town’s castle close to the lake. As well as tulips in all shapes, sizes and colours, you can find daffodils, muscaris and other spring bulbs too.
We visited and were impressed by the colour and diversity of tulips on view and enjoyed walking through the park and along the lake promenade where there were yet more tulips to be found.
There are a number of events taking place over the duration of the festival, including a Sound & Light show, a walk in the tulips, and the famous bulb sale.

The Tulip Festival was created in 1971 to mark 50 years of the Lake Geneva Horticultural Society and every year the horticulture apprentices of the Morges Centre for Professional Studies create several of the flower beds.
The Parc de l’Indépendance Morges
The “Parc de l’Indépendance“ is named after the date of the independence of the Lake Geneva Region in 1898.
In addition to the thousands of tulips on display in the Parc de l’Indépendance, there are also lots of flowers planted in fountains and pots all over the old town, in the Parc Seigneux and along the lake promenade. And on 10th May there is the big tulip bulb sale!

Where To Stay:
When we visited we stayed at the Hostellerie Le Petit Manoir which is located a short walk from the Park del l’Indépendance and a few minutes walk from the railway station. It offers comfortable rooms, very good food and has a delightful garden as well as a small spa. Due to Covid regulations you need to book the spa in advance.
