Ideas in Montreux, Switzerland


‘The town of Montreux nestles in a sheltered Lake Geneva bay, surrounded by vineyards and against the breathtaking backdrop of snow-covered Alps. The long, flower-bordered lake promenade which links Vevey and Montreux going all the way to Chillon Castle is simply asking to be strolled along. Cultural events as well as countless excursion options to the mountainous hinterland or on the lake make Montreux the most popular excursion and holiday destination.’
