"Resort Town with French Style" Montreux by sswagner

Montreux Travel Guide: 138 reviews and 482 photos

I must confess that my main reason for a trip to Montreux was to see Chateau de Chillon. It is by far the most popular attraction in this region. Montreux itself is on the East side of Lac Leman (Lake Geneva). It has very nice landscaping and can be quite colorful. Judging by the hotels and the homes, it seems like a very wealthy place. The good news is that it is easy to travel to this town, and the town itself is nice to observe. I highly recommend walking along the lake and just taking in views of the area. As for Chateau de Chillon, it was by far worth the visit.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Good transportation options, attractive town
  • Cons:Not a lot to do if the weather is bad
  • In a nutshell:This is one of the nicest regions in Western Switzerland. Montreux seems to be in the middle of this.
