Montreux and Chillon Castle

Constructed by the House of Savoy in the 12th century, Chillon Castle guarded a strategic passage between the Vaud Riviera and the Rhone Valley. It played a significant role in events such as Bern’s conquest in 1536 and the Vaud’s in 1798. Today, it stands as Switzerland’s most visited historical monument, attracting over 400,000 visitors each year.

Nestled between the lake and the mountains, Montreux enjoys a mild microclimate throughout the year, creating a delightful environment for an abundance of beautiful flowers and tropical plants.

For an exceptional panoramic view of the Swiss and French Alps, embark on a cogwheel train journey to Rochers de Naye. At an altitude of around 2,000 meters, you’ll be treated to breathtaking vistas from the Eiger to Mont-Blanc, with Lake Geneva shimmering below.

Lavaux Vineyards

In the mid-afternoon, venture into the renowned Lavaux wine region, a UNESCO World Heritage site stretching between Lausanne and Vevey. Traveling along scenic secondary roads, you’ll follow «La Corniche,» a balcony road offering panoramic views of Lake Geneva.
