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.

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.

At the recommendation of the tourism office, we took the funicular to the middle stop (make sure you press the button for that stop...we did not know this so went all the way to top...which was also fine and then caught same funicular back down to stop). It is then a short walk on a path (for some reason had... More
