Explore Montreux with Elegant Resorts
Pearl of the Swiss Riviera, this historic resort has attracted famous writers and artists, and more recently actors and musicians – there’s even a statue of Freddie Mercury, a regular visitor.
Location-wise, expect to be blown away with snow-capped peaks and steep hillsides spilling down to Lake Geneva. Thanks to a mild micro-climate, Mediterranean plants add a delightful twist – admire them in full glory along the Flower Path, a lakeside promenade to nearby Château de Chillon, a splendid old fortress with dungeons and towers.
Explore Montreux’s old hilltop town crammed with interesting buildings. Visit the local museum or the Queen Studio Experience, filled with paraphernalia. Browse exclusive boutiques and jewellers. Dine on Michelin-starred cuisine. Be pampered at a spa.
Pick up the steamer for a daytrip to Geneva or Lausanne. Or a fast-paced ride on the Alpine Coaster, around forty minutes away.
Every summer Montreux hosts a two-week jazz festival when the town swells with visitors here for the jazz, hip-hop, Latin and rock. Another popular time is December for the Christmas markets.
Whenever you come, this fairy-tale town in a fairy-tale setting will delight!
