Vevey – Invention place of milk chocolate
Milk chocolate was first discovered in Montreux Riviera. In 1875, after years of research, Daniel Peter combined the milk power developed by Henri Nestlé in 1866 with cocoa: Eureka! First sold as a chocolate drink, several years later the first bar of milk chocolate was produced and marketed under the name Gala Peter.
Lavaux – The land of three suns
Lavaux, UNESCO World Heritage vineyards are also known as the «Land of the Three Suns». The first is the one shining in the sky, the second is the one reflected on the waters of Lake Geneva and the third one comes from the heat accumulated within the 400km of terrace walls. These excellent conditions are conducive to the production of outstanding wines.
Queen – Place of inspiration
Freddie Mercury and Queen fell in love with Montreux and ended up buying a recording studio where they recorded 7 of their albums in Montreux, the famous Mountain studio! Freddie Mercury also found this the ideal spot to get away from the crowds and get inspired, or as he put it – “If you want peace of mind, come to Montreux”.
Tap water – Unlimited freshness
In Montreux Riviera, like anywhere else in Switzerland tap water meets very high-quality standards and can be drunk from every tap and even from most public fountains. It is very refreshing and much more sustainable than bottled water.
Fork – The land of Gastronomy
Why is there a giant Fork in the Lake? The giant fork, or La Fourchette, was first plunged into Lake Geneva back in 1995 to celebrate the tenth anniversary of the Alimentarium, Vevey’s local food and nutrition museum operated by Nestlé.
Chillon – The Castle on the water
Chillon Castle dates back to 12th century and sits proudly on a rocky island on the lake. It is believed to have been the inspiration for the Disney artists who drew Prince Eric’s home for The Little Mermaid.
