Montreux Day Trips from Geneva

At 75 minutes from Geneva along the sparkling shores of Lake Geneva (Lac Léman), Montreux occupies a wonderful position squeezed between the lake, the vineyards of the Lavaux region and the Alps in French-speaking Switzerland. This elegant town acts as a magnet for well-heeled visitors to the so-called Swiss Riviera that stretches along the lake to the sophisticated city of Lausanne, taking in the charming town of Vevey.

Montreux has a cute medieval heart crammed with steep streets with panoramic views down to Lake Geneva; several are lined with souvenir shops and traditional restaurants selling fondue and cheesy raclette, the regional specialties. However, the town’s best-known treasure is the romantic, medieval Château de Chillon, which sits on the lakeside just south of the town. Built in the 11th century, it has an array of dumpy towers and ramparts and is open for guided tours of its armor collections and prison. The castle can be reached by a gentle 45-minute stroll along a delightful lakeside promenade shaded with palms.  

For a really full day trip out, drive through the scenic Alpine landscape along the shores of Lake Geneva to Lausanne, the midpoint between Geneva and Montreux. Here a morning stop off gives time to discover the 13th-century Gothic castle and medieval core of this wealthy city before heading on through the UNESCO-listed Lavaux wine region to Montreux for a guided tour of lakeside Château de Chillon plus free time to explore the town itself. And of course Montreux is known for its lively cultural scene, so if you’re visiting in July be sure to take in the world-famous Jazz Festival; equally a visit in the run up to Christmas would be incomplete without a rummage round the festive market stretching along the lakeside promenade for unusual gifts and glasses of warming mulled wine.
