Package Itinerary

The town of Montreux nestles in a sheltered Lake Geneva bay, surrounded by vineyards and against the breathtaking backdrop of snow-covered Alps. Because of the exceptionally mild climate Montreux is called the capital of the Vaud Riviera. Plants associated with the Mediterranean, such as pines, cypresses and palm trees grow here. Charlie Chaplin, Freddie Mercury and several other famous people of world-renown lived and continue to live on the Vaud Riviera.

During your stay in Montreux we recommend you to visit Chateau de Chillon – one of Switzerland’s most famous monuments. Chateau de Chillon is an architectural jewel located in the most beautiful setting imaginable – on the shores of Lake Geneva, right at the foot of the Alps. The castle can be reached by walking along the lakefront (approx. 4 km from Montreux) or taking local train from Montreux to Veytaux-Chillon (300m from the castle).

From Montreux you can also easily go by train to Vevey – a beautiful city located on the shore of Lake Geneva. Vevey is a home of the Nestlé headquarters and several museums. Its most famous inhabitant was probably the comedian Charlie Chaplin, who spent the last twenty five years of his life here. A monument dedicated to him stands on the lakeshore.
