Montreux nestles in a sheltered bay on Lake Geneva, surrounded by the Lavaux vineyards (a UNESCO World Heritage Site) with the stunning backdrop of the snow-clad Alps. The main attraction is the town's iconic lakeside promenade. It's also worth taking a trip to Chillon Castle, right on the shore of Lake Geneva. Other highlights are boat trips on Lake Geneva, the panoramic Golden Pass train, the Chaplin's World Museum and the Rochers-de-Naye rack-and-pinion railway. Experience-packed excursion destinations around Montreux include the cities of Lausanne and Geneva and the nearby Greyerzerland (Gruyère region).
