The lovely gardens of the Château de Vullierens will be open to the public for the last time this year over two consecutive weekends: the 28th and 30th September and the 5th – 7th October, from 10:00 – 16:00.
There are various events planned over these two weekends in the grounds of the château: Alphorn playing, a macro photography exhibition of Irises and Rhododendrons by photographer Paola Paroli, a botanical art exhibition by Gusta van Dobbenburgh
There will be a chance to buy pumpkins from the gardens and taste some wine in the boutique, there will also be a food truck in the courtyard of the grounds. If you are there at 15:00, listen to and see the performance of the “Bing Bang” sculpture by Etienne Krähenbühl.
Dogs are welcome in the grounds (on a lead).
The paths are more or less flat and accessible for wheelchairs, however, please note some of the paths are gravel based so help with pushing a wheelchair will probably be required in places.
