Owner description: From the Rochers-de-Naye, towering at an altitude of 2,042 meters, you can enjoy an amazing view on the lake and the mountains. Get to this peace of heaven with the cog railway leaving from Montreux. Many activities as well as two restaurants, an hotel and Mongolian yurts will give real pleasure to adults and children all the year long.

“the price : 200 CHF for a 3 hour trip!”
Reviewed November 1, 2013

We wanted to do this trip with the train but when we got to the ticket office at the station we were well put off by the price 66 CHF per person (we were a family of 3), I think 200 swiss francs for a 3 hour trip is too expensive.
The cashier asked if we had discount coupons..where should we have found those then??
Maybe our (4 star) hotel didn't have enough stars to provide us with such coupons..?

“Incredible Views”
Reviewed October 7, 2013

If you have never been to the Alpes, this is a great way to see it. If you like to hike, take the small train to the top and go from there.

One of the best experiences I've had in Switzerland was going to the Roches de Naye. It's so beautiful!

“Brilliant”
Reviewed September 19, 2013

A must see, but beware of low cloud. Must be beautiful in the spring. Torrential rain in Montreux overnight meant snow at the summit which was great. Cloud cleared enough for great views and the train ride was spectacular in itself. Excellent café at the top - great chips (frites).

“Fabulous views”
Reviewed September 17, 2013

The train takes 55 minutes to reach the top where fantastic views await in all directions. One surprise that shouldn't be missed is the free (yes free!) small botanical garden with many different alpine plants about 15 minutes walk from the terminus (see pictures).
Using your Montreux Riviera card gets a 50% discount on the return train ticket price of 50CHF each. Note that you only have to pay from Haut De Caux (HDX) as the first part of the journey from Montreux to HDX is free with the Riviera card.
