Montreux

Vaud

Montreux is inspirational. This musical town's charm has already cast a spell over many famous celebrities such as Charlie Chaplin, Freddie Mercury and Igor Stravinsky. Thanks to its Mediterranean climate and a pleasant, cosmopolitan attitude, coupled with a great passion for music, Montreux is readily considered the capital of the Vaud Riviera. You can marvel at its colourful flowerbeds both in the direction of Vevey and on the way to Chillon Castle, a fascinating example of medieval architecture. Rochers-de-Naye, with its stunning view of the Vaud, Valais, Bernese and French Alps, is also a fantastic destination.
