I lived in Montreux and a part of me is always there. I'm so in love with this city I go back every year because I miss it so badly. It's one of the most beautiful places ever <3

When you've had enough of the main drag through Montreux and have tired of the bling, take a walk up to La Vieille Ville, the Old Town. Alternatively, catch the 206 bus or take the funicular railway to Les Planches. You will be transported to a more fascinating place rooted in the past. This is the real historic Montreux and...

Good to take a walk down their old town with many colourful looking three to four storey buildings. Their special architecture is an attraction in themselves.

If you are taking the small and narrow streets try to go up and you will have some nice view points over the lake and the city. Also you can admire the architecture of the old town.

This old part of Montreux is very cool to walk and if you like old building's it's a must, be on the lookout for a magnificent view to the lake near a "watch bench"! If looking to building's it's not your style look elsewhere.

One of my favourite places in Switzerland. If you are visiting Switzerland you must visit this place. Don't forget to visit Château de Chillion. Best town among Swiss Riviera towns.

What a spectacular town with amazing art throughout and dramatic scenery every which way you look. Probably the most beautiful town on Lake Geneva
