One of my favorite activities while visiting Montreux is to run around in the vineyards of the Corniche Lavaux, an area in the hills above the lake between Lausanne and Montreux.

To get to the area, take the train to Vevey, and connect there for the "wine train" to Chexbres, then just head downhill. Chexbres itslef is a lovely town with a big Migros grocery store, lots of restaurants, and a few hotels.

As you leave Chexbres, you'll see the vineyards below you, spreading down to the lake. You'll see several walkways going left, right, and down, and you can just pick any one of them and meander along. At several spots along the way, you'll see big information boards with paintings of the grapes and descriptions of the types of wine made from them. You'll also see signs telling you which vintner owns that vineyard. There are actually 32 km of trails linking Lausanne and Montreux through the vineyards.

Soon you'll see the red roofs of the village of Rivaz, and then you'll be wandering through its twisted streets, past the odd cave here and there. In Rivaz, I usually stop and eat at the Auberge du Rivaz across the street from the lake, with a terrace overlooking the lake.

From Rivaz, you can head to the left to explore the village of St Saphorin, or you can head to the ferry dock for a boat ride back to Montreux.

The lakeside village of Cully, just east of Lausanne, is a picturesque stop and has two recommended restaurants, the Auberge du Raisin and the Au Major Davel.

The lakeside village of Lutry, just two miles east of Lausanne, has a well-posted tour of medieval buildings as well as some good wine caves for tasting.
