There is just so much to learn about Montreux, Switzerland that I don’t want to tackle the city in just one post. It just wouldn’t be fair! So be prepared for a gaggle of future posts while I learn about how much fun you can have here!
Freddie Mercury and Charlie Chaplin both lived here and each has his own commemorative statue.
The climate is exceptionally mild here allowing cypress and palm trees (which are normally associated with the Mediterranean) to thrive.
Wine vineyards also surround Montreux! How wonderful is that!? You can walk or bike through them or even take a small train.
If you love the outdoors and wine, take the Lavaux Express (http://www.lavauxexpress.ch/en/). This is an open-air tram which offers multiple routes among the Lavaux vineyards, which are classified as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
The long lakeside promenade connects Montreux with Vevey and is filled with tropical plants and flowers.
The town itself has twisty, cobbled streets lined with beautiful buildings.
I’ll be unearthing more details about Montreux in future posts but hopefully this gives a decent overview of this stunning area.
