The free Morges Tulip Festival is a top festival for colorful photos of the finest spring event on Lake Geneva in Switzerland.
Each spring, Morges holds a Tulip Festival (Fête de la Tulipe) in a lovely shady park on the shores of Lake Geneva. Around 150,000 bulbs, including around 300 varieties of tulips, are planted in Morges’ Independence Park to provide one of the best spring photo opportunities in the Lac Léman region of Switzerland. The festival is held each year from mid-April to mid-May but as the public park is always open, visitors can enjoy the tulips whenever nature deems the bulb plants fit to bloom.
Tulips and Flowers in Morges
The 300 varieties of tulips – as well as the use of daffodils and hyacinths as backup flowers for cold weather – allow tulips and flowers to be in bloom for most of the festival period. As the park is directly on the lakefront, visitors may enjoy pleasant Lake Geneva views including fine views of Mt Blanch if the weather cooperates. Morges is one of the best places to see Mt Blanch — further north on the lakefront, the peak is hidden behind other mountains.
Morges is a popular leisure boat port, so expect many sailboats and yachts too in the background on windy days. Lake Geneva boat cruises also frequently depart from Morges.
