The vineyards are beautiful with the lake on one side and the terraced vineyards on the other. We walked from village to village, stopping to eat and drink. The views and towns make for wonderful pictures!
The grand vistas, the colour of the lake nicely complimenting the greens of the vineyards and the back drop of mountains gives the area a fairy tale feel... walking thru the vine terraces as undulating valley is spread before the eyes dotted with fairy tale...More
That is a UNESCO World Heritage place. A must go, of course on a sunny day and maybe do the wine tasting. We skipped this because we had children with us. The views on Lac Leman are unforgettable, it made us wanna live there :)
Some great walks through the vineyards, uphill and down - make sure you carry water because most of the fountains in the villages you go through have water unfit for drinking. If you get the train to Grandvaux you can walk down to Lutry through...More

We have traveled extensively thru the US and Europe. This is just breathtakingly beautiful! Words are not adequate. The mountains, the lake, the steep, steep vineyards, narrow corniche roads, all = SPECTACULAR!! We did not allow enough time, just 2 days. Would recommend a week...More

Answers to 1) Mt Titlis if you want white, Mt Rigi if you like to see green and other colors. 2) You will be able to take a selfie in town of Zermatt, but you will miss Gornergrat, at comparable height to Mt Titlis, or Klein Matterhorn, which is even higher at 3883m. You need to spend at least 2 nights in Zermatt to do those. 3) Everywhere in Switzerland is costly, Montreux is not the most expensive. Use the [hotel] button above to find one that suits your budget. 4) sure. Are you sure it...More
Itinerary and Hotel Advice - 9 Day Trip (4 Replies)
Hi. My husband and I will be meeting his parents (70 yrs old) in Switzerland for an 8 or 9 day trip during the last week of July. We want to see spectacular views (alps, lakes, waterfalls, vineyards), enjoy nature, take leisurely strolls, do some sightseeing, relax on a veranda, etc. We had thought about flying into Zurich and staying in 3 different areas (Lucerne-Wengen-Montreux or Vevey) but are now thinking we should limit it to two bases (maybe Wengen and Montreux/Vevey?) so the trip...More

Hi LIsa T and welcome to the forums! Your idea of 2 bases rather than 3 is exactly right. Too much hassling around with packing/unpacking/logistics, etc otherwise. You lose at least 1/2 day, more typically a full day every time you change bases. Your picks of Montreux/Vevey and Wengen are also excellent. Two very different regions with different things to offer. I love the Fairmont Montreux. For what you are looking for I think it is perfect. But, then again, it's the only place I've...More

Hi vimmyarora, I think the vineyards will be ripe & green and will be very pretty. The very best time, in my opinion, is later in the year, though. I think the best time is late Sep/early Oct. But it should be pretty in August. s
