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

The Old Town area is not as popular with tourists as the lakeside promenade, probably because it sits along the side and at the top of a rather steep hill. If you have time, however, do venture up that way! The old buildings are full of charm, the narrow streets just invite you to get lost in the maze... An... More

If you want to loose weight, and to behold some spectacular views(provided it does not rain, there is no fog, a.s.o) there is your chance. If it rains, snows, foggy, misty or any other current weather conditions in Montreux you still have the workout................

If you are in good shape and you have spare time, it is worth a walk to the old time. The view is spectacular and the architecture is worth seeing. I have seen better. Sadly, there is no central town square to sit and enjoy a coffee or snack.

You can pick up a map from the tourist information office on the seafront at Montreux. You begin the walk from there walking uphill through narrow streets, taking you up the hillside to viewpoints across Montreux and the lake. Well worth the effort. I would recommend this.

We found this at the end of our holiday and loved the quiet streets. Visited the Musuem about Montreux and found reasonable places to eat/drink.

Just a few minutes walk up from busy, modern Montreux is the old town - nothing much there to see, but a little bit of a peaceful respite, and good views down!
