I thoroughly enjoyed this unique experience. If you take the train to the very top, you will enjoy some of the most amazing views of the Lake Geneva area and feel like you're on top of the world. Along the way are quaint mountain villages that I would like to more fully explore at some point. A point of caution.... More

Wonderful hikes on the side of the mountains. Breathtaking views from the cog rail leading to the top. Peaceful surroundings to enjoy with coffee and or a sandwich on the terrace with the stunning views all around.Beautiful place...not to be missed

The train ride up was enjoyable especially watching the train change direction going up the mountain. Views from the top were spectacular. We also enjoyed a Cheese Fondue at the restaurant, was delicious and reasonably priced. One of Switzerland's great lookouts.

It is a must visit while in Montreux. A small train will take you to the top of the mountain. Alpine garden, marmots paradise and breathtaking views on the lakes and valleys make this trip unforgettable. Preferably to go when clear weather. Keep in mind that on the top it will be windy and 4-5 degrees cooler than at the... More

As tourist train cost an arm and leg we dedided to drive to Col de Jaman and hike to the Rochers de Naye from there. As per usual in Switzerland, path is well marked at the beginning but marking is nowhere to be seen when you need it the most. We went up the La Perche route which was ok... More

Worth going, but ask in your hotel a voucher to pay 1/3 of the regular price. Once there, try the veal sausage with fries.

Fantastic train ride up to the top of the Mountains(alps) and as you head up you have fantastic views of Lake Geneva. Once there, go in many directions and walk around for all the views and the jar din. Look out to the distance over the Jardin side and you will see sheep or goats being herded on a tiny... More

This is a must for anyone looking to enjoy a birds eye view of Lake Geneva and the surrounding Alps. A steep train journey from Montreux takes you to around 2000 m where there is a restaurant/cafe, nature trails and excellent observation platform. Allow at least 3 hours for the whole experience and make sure it is a clear day... More

There is no a/c in the train carriages that take you there on the cog railway. There is no first class and the windows only open slightly. I've heard it's better to travel on the cog train when it's cold, so make sure you don't ascend during a heatwave! It was unbearable! Not much to see on the way, so... More

We went to Rochers-de-Naye in May 2015.We had an amazing experience.We were not aware of the timing and the last cog rail was at 6:00 .We were only two left up to the top and brought back safely !!The snow studded valley ,filled with the mist left us in tranquility.
