“Quaint Old Streets”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2005

Most tourists ignore the old town of Montreux because its flowered lakeside promenade is such a strong draw. But they are missing a lot! Instead of the modern, thriving, bustling tourist resort we find at the lakeside, the old town is full of old stone buildings, winding stairs that go on forever, and the locals who move much more slowly and who greet you cheerily.

It's not hard to find the old town, but it is a bit difficult to climb the steep hill. Just go uphill -- on any street -- from the train station, and you'll soon find yourself in the maze of streets. Here you'll also find the Museum of Old Montreux (Musee du Vieux Montreux) and its attached restaurant, and an old Evangelical (Protestant) church.

The terrace of the church has stunning views over the city.
