One full day in Montreux

Hi, am spending Wednesday 10th October in Montreux. Plan on doing the lakeside walk to the Chateau in the morning, then would like to do a boat cruise in the afternoon. Is there a boat that leaves from the Chateau that would take an hour or two to get back to Montreux? Thanks.

Hi Cohunagirl,

I love the vineyards in the Fall. If I were you, I would take the ferry from Chillon and go all the way to Lutry, passing the vineyards along the way. That trip will take about two hours, then you just take the train back to Montreux.

The ferries run on a reduced schedule in the Fall, so you may have to check to see if there is one at the time you want to go. You can see the schedules at

www.cgn.ch

Have fun as you plan!

Hi again,

The Fall ferry schedule will probably be identical to the Spring schedule. I just took a look at it, and it looks like the best one to catch would leave Chillon at 13.35 and arrive at Lutry at 15.02. You could stroll through Lutry (my favorite Lavaux town), then walk to the train station and catch the train at 15.39 or 16.06 or 16.39 or 17.06 (. . . . etc) back to Montreux. The train trip will take 20 minutes. I think that would be your best bet.

Have fun!

Thank you S, that will fill in my afternoon perfectly , just what I was looking for. P.S. I find the website confusing, the home page is in English, and then when I go onto the timetable it is in Swiss (with no English icon to click on).
