the region

Montreux-Vevey has always been considered a prestigious destination. It  has been a source of inspiration and a place of peace for many personalities from the world of the arts who, like Charlie Chaplin, settled here permanently.

In an idyllic setting between the mountains and the lake and with a much-appreciated microclimate, Montreux is a town with a long history. The Château de Chillon, Switzerland’s most visited monument, bears witness to this.

With close to 25,000 inhabitants, Montreux appeals to both the young and the young at heart. The promenade, old town, casino, museums, excursions, nightlife, shopping… there’s something to suit all tastes.

Montreux and the region offer events throughout the year, most of which are world-famous.

What’s more, the Lavaux region, only a few kilometres from Montreux, is listed as a UNESCO world heritage site. There you can taste wine whilst enjoying a breath-taking panorama.
