“Delightful lakeside promenade”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 5, 2012

This part of Switzerland is often considered as a Swiss Riviera. Montreux is already famous for its hotels and world-renown jazz festival. But the lakeside promenade is a pure delight. It is adorned with trees and flowers, right on the lakeside overlooking the Alps. There are stalls, fountains, statues and cafés to enjoy the view. They have even made a platform for picnics right on the lake near the underground parking.

“Lakeside Promenade walk well worth it”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 1, 2012

In spite of having arrived in the rain to Montreux, the following day was sunny and bright. We decided to head to Villeneuve by bus and walk back to Montreux. The flat, level walk was gorgeous with all the flowers and beautiful lake views. Along the way, we stopped in at Chateau de Chillon, and spent time there. There was plenty of opportunity to sit and people watch, or to just look out at the beautiful lake and mountains. We're a couple in our 50's and this walk seems relatively easy for all age groups.

“The highlight of Montreux”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 31, 2012

Montreux would be a pretty average Swiss town if it were not for the lakeside promenade. You can walk all the way to Chateau de Chillon and even Villneuve. In the other direction the promenade continues towards Vevey, though the best bit is the section around Montreux. Great views of the lake and mountains and it gets increasingly peaceful as you get further away from Montreux centre.

This is a very pleasant walk along the lake, offering a beautiful setting with many trees, plants, and flowers, as well as a great view of the lake and surrounding mountains. I definitely recommend this walk. Enjoy!

“Best part of Montreux”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 15, 2012

Really lovely walk to do, with many well placed rest spots if you need them. Beautiful views out over the lake, and flower beds/gardens obviously tended with care. Most enjoyable.
