Like the beautiful objects displayed in the Museum, our garden plants also showcase the exhibition. Aromatic herbs, vegetables, cereals and other plants which play a role in our diet all flourish here. The garden also lets its educational orientation blossom as it welcomes schools for in-depth guided visits and the general public for one-of-a-kind culinary workshops. It is also the main resource for the Alimentarium chefs, who use its produce to create dishes to tantalize curious taste buds.
A ‘must-not-miss’ part of Museum life, the garden is also an ideal open air space for strolling and taking life in a low gear. As soon as fine weather arrives, seats, benches and tables offer the opportunity to make the most of this exceptional spot along the Vevey quayside. Take a moment to enjoy a gourmet break at the Terrasse, a new restaurant area within the grounds, which caters for both small and large appetites.
