Montreux town was an accidental find when weather conspired to prevent a trip up Rochers-de-Naye (travelers note: The Rochers-de-Naye website has webcams, so you can check conditions at the top before you leave. We had already decided not to take the trip, but the guide in the information center confirmed that if the summit is in cloud, there is very... More

My hubby and I walked to the old town above Montreux expecting to find quaint little streets, dotted with interesting shops and restaurants. There is not a lot of this in this area and we couldn't even find a nice restaurant to enjoy a Swiss Fondue. We did enjoy a visit to the Musee of Montreux, historical museum, while we... More

Montreux is a super lovely place. Very nice place to visit during the jazz festival if you want view people. Lovely place to visit during the end of summer with your love.

This is a lovely old town feel and i recommend strolling down in the early evening rather than walking up. The view from the top is stunning and it's like walking through yesteryear. Well worth the effort to walk through if in Montreux.

It is worth walking to the village. In many European old towns you can feel the past better than here

The Vieille Ville is OK but there is not that much interesting to see. The street market and some of the small shops are ok but .... Switzerland is full of "vieille-ville" and Montreux doesn't make much effort to offer something different.

We took a 5-minute city bus ride up the hill to the old town. There we found a really quaint restaurant were we had a delicious raclette - restaurants in town weren't offering - where the owners gave personal service.

Montreux is a charming city about 60 miles/100 km northeast of Geneva, nestled beneath the beautiful mountains. Everywhere there are beathtaking views of the mountain and lakes. The only drawback is that many shops and restaurants are closed on Sundays. Also, if you're going to take the train to the top of the mountain, check schedules beforehand, as there is... More

We were there on a Sunday so everything was closed in the old city. It was still interesting to get to know it.
