Things to do in Montreux, Switzerland

The area around the lake makes for excellent walking, whilst seasoned hikers should consider taking the funicular up the mountainside for more challenging routes. The main ski resort in the area is at Villars-sur-Ollon, which has 100km of pistes for all skiing and snowboarding abilities.

Chateau de Chillon is one of Switzerland’s most widely visited tourist attractions, and is a series of 100 independent buildings that are all interlinked to create one whole castle. Some of the older parts of the castle date back to the 11th century, and are home to historical exhibits that can be viewed by the public.

One of the more interesting landmarks in the area is a statue of Freddie Mercury, which was erected in homage to the town’s famous former resident, who was also a part owner of the famous Mountain Studios which were once in the town. Montreux also holds a memorial day in honour of Queen’s lead singer, held during the first weekend of September every year.

When it comes to nightlife, Montreux Casino was rebuilt in 1975 after a fire, and has remained a popular destination for both tourists and locals ever since. A number of restaurants, cafes and bars can also be found both in the town centre and along the shores of Lake Geneva.

Owner met us in underground car park and was on site for any questions. She has to pay a tourist tax which means we got either free or reduced price on local transport. We spotted the free bike hire a few metres along the Lake but were too late to use them unfortunately. Stunning views and easy to get around - we loved the train up to Rochers de Naye, the paddle steamer across the Lake, a walk along the promenade to Chateau de Chillon, a look round the shops at Montreux. Terribly expensive to eat out and double the price for supermarket food compared to U.K. We would definitely recommend this apartment in a quiet , upmarket complex right next to the Lake.
