Hotels in Montreux
Located in southwest Switzerland, on the edge of Lake Geneva, with the snow-capped Alps as a backdrop, Montreux is a global attraction. Tourists come to witness the rich heritage, lush vineyards and beautiful scenery. Named the capital of the Vaud Riviera, due to its mild climate and palm trees, the town was a favourite haunt for the likes of Freddie Mercury and Charlie Chaplin. Stay in one of the many Montreux hotels and relish the fresh mountain air and tranquil setting this remarkable place can offer.
There are countless excursions to be had, either into the mountains or via the lake. Take a paddleboat over to the Chateau of Chillon and witness the incredible views that stretch across Lake Geneva. Its fortified walls and romantic towers inspired the likes of Lord Byron, Victor Hugo and Courbet. With 1000 years of history to unveil, this castle is now a museum depicting life for the Court of Savoy and the Bernese bailiffs.
If you want to stretch your legs, put on your boots and stroll along the lake promenade from Villeneuve towards Vevey for arguably one of the most stunning walks in Switzerland. For a closer look at the intricately terraced vineyards, head for Lavaux, now a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Meander along the hillside, tasting wine and taking refreshment as you go.
For those seeking a more sedate option, scale 1600m by rail, on the Rocher-de-Naye railway and witness a spectacular view from the summit. Another exceptional trip by rail is via the Golden Pass Line. This train runs between Montreux and Bernese Oberland, offering panoramic views along the way.
Visit the Place du Marche, where a statue of Freddie Mercury looks out onto Lake Geneva before trying your hand with a flutter at the Montreux Casino. Dine in style at the Fairmont Le Montreux Palace, which illustrates the elegance and grace of a bygone era. For the latest concerts or exhibitions, check out the Montreux Music and Convention Centre.
Notable annual festivals held in the town include the Septembre musical de Montreux, which was originally founded in 1946.
