Montreux, congress and jazz town

Located on the shore of Lake Geneva, Montreux hosts the seasonal Jazz Festival and the Christmas Market. As a town of music, it has priviledged relations with celebrities, such as Freddie Mercury and Igor Stravinsky.

Nestling between Lake Geneva and the steep mountains, Montreux enjoys a Mediterranean microclimate. In July it lives to the rhythm of the Montreux Jazz Festival: 20 days of concerts and some 250,000 visitors.

At a close distance, Chillon Castle, located on a rocky isle, proposes an enchanting journey through time. This medieval fortress on the mountainside and princely residence on the lakeside is one of the most visited monuments in Switzerland.

From Montreux station, a cogwheel train takes visitors in an hour to Rochers-de-Naye where they can enjoy a 360° view of Lake Geneva and the Alps. Not to be missed: the animal park “Marmottes Paradis “ an Alpine garden and Mongolian yurts to spend the night in.

One month before Christmas, Montreux opens a huge market. Inside lit chalets, an abundance of gift ideas and culinary tastings are on offer.
