MONTREUX – THE PEARL OF THE SWISS RIVIERA

Montreux is truly a pot pourri world of art, history, scenic beauty, folklore, and elegant traditions. Immortalized by Byron in the 19th century, Montreux has been welcoming and enchanting guests from afar for well over a hundred years.

Ideally situated on Lake Geneva, Montreux enjoys a remarkably mild sunny climate where vine clad terraced slopes and forests melt upwards to the soaring peaks of the Alps.

From the majestic setting of Chillon Castle along sheltered bays of roses, magnolias and palm trees, stately homes and excellent old world hotels grace the lakeshore.

Enticing shopping boutiques, sidewalk cafes, lakeside promenades, festivals, famous home grown wines and spectacular views are only part of the pleasures.

At easy distance are major cities of the nation, delightful villages, stunning mountain summits climbed comfortably in antique trains and stately Paddle steamers plying the shores
