"THE SWISS RIVIERA" Top 5 Page for this destination Montreux by balhannah

Montreux Travel Guide: 138 reviews and 482 photos

My husband and I stayed in Montreux for 3 nights.

On my Montreux pages, I will write tips on what we did over those three days.

One day, we went to Sion, one of the oldest towns in Switzerland

We found Montreux to be an excellent base for seeing the sights around the area.

I really enjoyed my time here, and didn't want to leave!

    Loved the photos of Chillon Castle (inside and out) and the pretty gardens (espcially in Ouchy ) and lake views! The salt mine visit was fascinating and I enjoyed the scenery on the Route Petite Cornishe". A super little tour!

    Oh wow, what a marvellous tour you did. Love the tiny cute villages and also Chateau Chillon, especially the courtyard and interior. makes me want to go there :-)) And also the salt mines. I was in the mines of Reichenhall and Berchtesgaden and it was surely lots of fun. Magic views from the mountains! And thanks for telling about the other musicians' statues. I knew that Freddie has one, but wasn't aware of the others :-)
