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.

                                                              A fantastic nice apartment with wonderful lake view from the rooms and the balcony, too. And even from your bed :) . The rooms are big , realy nicely furnished and everything is comfortable. It has a well equipped kitchen , so you can feel like at home. Do not miss the sunset from your balcony ! Lot of sorrounding POI-s are easily accessable by car or by bus. But if you want to stay and enjoy the place where you are - than everything is in walking distance , i.e. shops, restaurants, etc. Anne. the owner was so nice, helpful and prompt in responding to even minor issues . The program tips - suggested by Anne - were realy great. We highly recommend this apartment and we will go back surely.

                                                              Lovely apartment in a great location

                                                              The apartment was exactly as we expected from the description and photos. It was immaculate, comfortable and well maintained. The size and layout was perfect for us (couple with toddler). Plenty of room to put up a ready bed in the bedroom. The kitchen was very well appointed with everything we needed. The only thing I would improve is the comfort of the bed and pillows for our liking but that's a minor thing. The building was lovely and we'll maintained with easy keycode entry. The location was perfect: 5-10 minutes walk from the station with shops and the lake just around the corner. The owners are lovely and service was great throughout. I highly recommend this property and would be very pleased to return. Montreux is an excellent base for a holiday. We're recommend getting the Swiss travel pass and making use of the paddle steamer cruises on the lake, the golden pass routes and the various local funiculars. The lakeside promenade is lovely. We were less impressed with visits to Lausanne and Evian. The local wine is well worth trying but go to the Coop - the deli beside the apartment is overpriced and Migros doesn't sell alcohol, which we only learnt after wandering around in confusion.

                                                              Excellent base for visitors to Montreux Riviera

                                                              Lovely well equipped comfortable studio which is very handy for the Montreux area. David is the perfect host and took time to make sure we knew how everything worked and was very helpful. Would definitely recommend to friends and relatives. Beautiful area to visit.
