ArboretumSince 1968, the national Arboretum has regrouped nearly 4,000 trees, bushes and ligneous plants on an agricultural and forest site covering an area of 200 hectares near Aubonne above Rolle. Coming from temperate climate zones, these trees are regrouped in copses highlighting their shapes and colours. The Arboretum also develops an ancient orchard that preserves old fruit varieties abandoned today. It has a beautiful collection of apple trees and wild roses. A visit of the Arboretum represents a 2-hour walk in a landscaped garden, with a stop at the welcome centre and a visit of its exhibitions. Entry is free.
Open all year round.
