Historical kitchen garden


Permanent open air exhibition, the kitchen garden of the Château de Prangins is the largest historical kitchen garden in Switzerland. With its selection of unusual vegetables, fruits and flowers from another time, it is home to more than 200 ancient regional varieties and focuses, like the museum, on the 18th century, the Age of Enlightenment during which travel and science bring many new varieties to its precincts. Today, its function is also educational, with guided tours, workshops and events offering a rich variety of experiences. The kitchen garden is accessible all year long, its entry is free as well as the audioguide in three languages that takes you by the hand to the dogwood, the beetroot and the burnet.
