Montreux is a traditional resort town that resides between the lakeside and the steep hills. The town’s promenade is decorated with sculptures, flowers, grand Belle Epoque buildings, and Mediterranean trees. This town is a small paradise with a pristine lake, mountains, and vineyards. It has attracted many tourists, writers, and even artists with its celestial beauty, and tranquillity.
The forest along with the lush green pastures prompt the hikers to roam around the hiking trails, and enjoy the sights of the blossoming wild narcissus which is locally known as “the snow of May”. It is a miniature Switzerland which is rich in cultural events like the Montreux Jazz Festival held in July.
A must-visit place in Montreux is château de Chillon, a 14th-century iconic medieval castle stands tall on the narrow shore between Villeneuve and Montreux.
The mild microclimate of Montreux is ideal for walking through the lake promenades, exploring new locals, and relaxing.
