Description

Welcome to Vullierens Castle!

The architecture of Vullierens Castle, as well as its magnificent gardens and its sculpture park make it one of the most remarkable heritage sites of Switzerland, with a unique 180° view on the Alps, Mont Blanc and Lake Léman.

The collection of iris is without a doubt the most modern in Europe - a mosaic of 50 000 varieties blooms in spring and autumn.

Last but not least, enjoy the award-winning wines of Vullierens and its historical cellar.
