The 50th Tulip Festival will take place between 20th March - 10th May 2020 in Morges at Independence Parc near the Castle of Morges, at the shore of Lake Leman. This is a limited-time experience. Turkey is the birthplace of tulips and many people do not know this fact. Together we will visit the festival of tulips in Switzerland which takes place in Morges, explore the beauty with all our senses, hear stories from history, compare the different sorts of tulips, take lots of beautiful pictures, and spend a lovely relaxing day together. Tulip was brought to Europe in the 15th century from Turkish lands. In Switzerland, we are very lucky to have a wonderful festival of tulips which honors Turkey as well. With the lead of a Turkish architect, you will spend a lovely day at this festival, exploring many different sorts of tulips, watching shows (shows differ on the day of visiting), learning the history and background of tulips, and even tasting some Turkish delights which I brought from Turkey. Come and enjoy this beauty with me. A relaxing lovely day is guaranteed. Please check my profile for my other experiences in Geneva, Nyon, and Istanbul. If you cannot find a date or time that suits you, please contact me for other options.
I am an architect with a master's degree, born and grew up in Istanbul, Turkey. I also inherited my father's tourism agency which has been active for more than 40 years. I have been living in Switzerland for about 20 years. Architecture and nature are my two passionate subjects in life. I grew up with tulips and tulip stories in Turkey, the birthplace of tulips. I would like to share those stories, history, and love of tulip with my guests.
