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.

We found the process incredibly easy and straightforward. The Cockrem's are friendly and helpful (even emailing me with directions to help us with our drive over). The apartment is beautifully appointed, clean, quiet and in a great location with very easy access to the slopes. Everything has been included to make your stay an easy and comfortable one. There is a small but well stocked shop in the next building, so it's easy to get the basics. They were more than happy to order in gluten free bread for me and a friendly ski hire shop situated on the ground floor of the apartment block. Our children have skied successfully with the local ski school every year, making great progress and the nursery slope and meeting points are very close to the apartment. Our children had progressed onto the blue slopes of the resort within a few hours and reds within days. Night skiing is a big hit with our family, as is the snow park situated just off the main slope. With a Portes Du Soleil ski pass you can easily hop over the border to Avoriaz and Morzine in France and neighbouring Champoussin and Morgin in Switzerland. There are lots of ski runs to explore. The resort itself is quiet, with a few restaurants and a couple of hotels, but for a family holiday with the children then this suits us just perfectly! The slopes are hardly ever crowded, even during half term, especially when compared to the much busier resorts of Avoriaz and Morzine on the other side of the mountain. We love Les Crosets. It really is the best kept secret of the Portes Du Soleil.

Free parking and right next to the beginners slope and free magic carpet, so we could walk to the slope and easily go back for lunch or if the weather turned bad. Leysin has a host of other activities as well like skating, tubing and swimming, indoor climbing etc. A beautiful view from the balcony really helped make for a nice alpine getaway with small kids...
