A very large Christmas market with stalls selling food, drink,crafts Christmas decorations. A lovely family atmosphere during the day and a great place for a night out with friends in the evening. Prices can be a bit steep this is not a market to come a get a cheap gift but you will find lots of original gifts and crafts.

Me and my boyfriend visited Montreux Noel market for several times. We always had amazing time. The atmosphare is full of Xmas, hot wine, punch, tea with some alcohol. I would say Montreux is not lovely only during Xmas time but also during summer. If you have time on the end of June/beg of July go and visit famous Montreux... More

We caught a train from Geneva to Montreux and went to the Christmas market. It was great for having a relaxed look around and there plenty of gifts to look at. We enjoyed the hot wine and crepes! A short walk from the station, it is easy to find. The mountains make a beautiful backdrop. A very relaxing day out.... More

The Montreux's Christmas Market Lake Geneva with Swiss & French Alps setting makes for a wonderful experience. It's easy to find and do. I arrived by train and just walked across the street down the steps towards the lake and voila there was the entrance arch. I found the individual market stands very authentic, high-quality offerings with lots of local... More

One of the best Christmas Markets in Switzerland is found in Montreux. This beautiful city offers visitors a wonderful atmosphere for the festive season. You will be able to find all sorts of handcrafts in small wooden chalets right next to the lake. If you would like to have a coffee, I would recommend visiting the restaurant inside the Forum...

If you're in Montreux at Christmastime, it's impossible to miss the Marché de Noel because the main road and the waterfront are lined with wooden chalets, each containing something to tempt you. Whether it's jewelry, chocolates or souvenirs it's hard to resist spending your money. Add to that the smells that waft from the many stalls selling food and drink... More
