A family treasure: open the gates of the Vullierens Castle gardens and discover one of the most magnificent iris collections of Europe. In history and art, the iris is a flower with a special place. Painted since Antiquity, sacred for the Egyptians, symbol of French royalty, in Vullierens the iris is the flower of a family passion and tradition, the story of the castle owner and the women who charmed his life.

The Castle of Vullierens is renouned in all Europe for its gardens and its fabulous collection of iris - imagine a park with thousands of more than 400 species of iris! It is an extraordinary natural show with spectacular colors and sweet perfumes. During the blooming period, a walk on the paths of these gardens is a pure delight - which one can anticipate or prolong by a brunch or BBQ at Café des Jardins or a typically Italian piadina on the go. (depending on sanitary measures)

There is a treasure hunt available for the children aged between 6 and 12 (ask for it at the entrance) and the kids' pass for the whole season costs CHF 10.- 

Some paths are a bit tricky but the visit is altogether stroller-friendly, there are high-chairs at the Café des Jardins and a quite original slide/contemporary art piece...smiley The highlight for kids being the "Big Bang", a huge mettallic sphere made of tubes, which can be moved and makes great sounds! Don't miss it at 11AM or 2:30PM...

From 10:00 to 18:00 every days, until 13/06/2021.
