The municipality of Montreux is ideally positioned on the banks of Lake Geneva, Switzerland, at the foot of the Alps.

Just a short distance away are some excellent skiing options and historic attractions, and Montreux has a wide variety of other attractions to cater for all interests.

Things to do in Montreux, Switzerland

As Montreux is positioned on the north-east shore of Lake Geneva, spectacular views of the lake can be witnessed from around the town, and from some of the rental accommodation that can be found on its shores. 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.

Montreux has good bus, rail and ferry links for those wishing to explore the surrounding region during their stay. An interesting day trip can be had to the market town of Vevey, just 7km along the shores of the lake. The nearest big city is Lausanne, 30km away.

Very happy with the location, a short walk to the lakeside and shops. Good transport links near too. The view of the water was a little limited, with some large trees in the way, still good views of the mountains though. Could have done with some detailed instructions for finding the apartment (struggled a little in the dark). Would be happy to stay there again if visiting the region, as very comfortable and a good base for exploring the area. Chateau Chillon a highlight, easily reachable by road or boat. The lakeside is beautiful, whichever direction you travel in. Easy to walk into Vevey or even along to Montreux. The mountains are impressive too of course, access by bus, train and furnicular are easy options if you don't have a car.

Anne was a pleasure to deal with, unobtrusive but always on hand when we had any queries. Apartment was very well presented, clean and comfortable. Good wifi, and very safe/secure. Will definitely be back!

This downstairs apartment was extremely comfortable with lots of room for myself, my wife and 2 kids. Great location with spectacular views (especially on Sunny mornings). Very well equipped apartment, very clean and with wi-fi (which was greatly appreciated by myself & the kids). The shower also went down very well, lots of hot water with great pressure. Our host Sylvia was very warm & welcoming, with a great welcome back with info about the town. Loved the hikes up the mountain, and would recommend the ropes course situated in Aigle (just 15 minute drive down the mountain). We really enjoyed our stay and wouldn't hesitate to recommend this location.
