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.

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.

This is a nice walk to the old town and it is quiet interesting as you are in the montains - the motorway is on the top of your head - very nicely done and also quiet scary if you are living here

I thoroughly enjoyed my time here. Take your time and wander the cobbled streets, watch and listen to the buskers, take a coffee al fresco. It is just so lovely and enjoyable.

We decided to walk up to the old part of Montreux from the lakeside - only about 10-15 mins. It's full of very quaint old painted buildings. No special attractions but it makes a nice break from the bustle of the more popular parts of the city. From there we walked the 40 minutes down the hill towards Chateau de... More
