“What to say?”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2014

This is a graveyard....The Hepburn grave is located there so it is nice to see for her fans. Take a candle with you or bunch of flowers.

“A small and quiet place to pay tribute to this wonderful woman”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2014

If you are visiting Audrey Hepburn's grave do it quietly. And if you are just standing there you might understand, why she chose Tolochenaz as her home - and ultimately her final resting place.
We had 2 japanese girls on visit and this was the most important event of their trip to Europe. For me personally Audrey Hepburn was always one of the greatest female screen legend and as I am living close to her home I had the chance to see her once personally and assisted also to the funeral. She was also UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador and worked in some of the most profoundly disadvantaged communities of Africa, South America and Asia.

“Very touching visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2014

It's strange to call any cemetery a "tourist attraction", but here it's even more intrusive, as it's really a very small and quiet place. So if you are visiting Audrey Hepburn's grave do it quietly. And if you are just standing there you might understand, why she chose Tolochenaz as her home - and ultimately her final resting place. It's very touching to pay tribute to this wonderful woman here.

“So glad we made that visit.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2013

After checking out of our hotel in Morges, we decided to visit the small town of Tolochenaz , Switzerland where The late Audrey Hepburn lived for the last of her 30 years.
We were fascinated by this town, visited her monument in the centre of the town, erected after her death in 1993 we then visited her graveside, perched with the nature of fields beyond, a very small cemetery for the locals, she is buried amongst the locals and was amazed that her graveside was of such simplicity. We then visited her villa.
I was always an admirer of her as an actress but more so for the work she carried out for UNICEF.

“Best thing I've done”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2012

A must for any Audrey Hepburn fan. I took a 4 hour train ride from Zurich, stopped off in Morges, and got a ride from a lovely American expat living in Tolochenaz. Across the street from the quiet, quaint cemetery is the home she spent the last 30 years of her life living in. Tip: everyone on this side of Swirzerland speaks French, so be prepared to know the tourist basics to get around.
