The Lavaux region is about 30 minutes away from Morges and offers many possibilities for cultural visits. Explore the enchanting landscape and the historic villages. Take a hike through Lavaux’s steep vineyard terraces – declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. Or visit the Château de Chillon ; one of several historical monuments on the banks of Lac Léman ?
Should you want to take to the mountains for an unforgettable sightseeing experience, a cog railway train takes you up to Les Rochers-de-Naye (2042m above sea level) with one of the most beautiful panoramas in Switzerland. And once you have had enough of the view, a visit to the Alpine Garden is well worthwhile your time. It has a collection of more than 1000 mountain plants. The Marmot Paradise, too, is a “must” to see. The zoo especially inspires children who can admire various breeds of cute rodents from all over the world.
