Stamp station Rochers-de-Naye
Stamp N° 34 Rochers-de-Naye
The 2,042-metre-high Rochers-de-Naye has long been a popular destination. Taking the cog railway from Montreux to the peak is well worth the journey. The summit offers a breathtaking view. You can see Lake Geneva as well as the Vaud, Bernese, Valais and even French Alps.
Stamp station Montreux
Stamp N° 35 Freddie Mercury Statue
The singer of the rock group Queen settled in peaceful and relaxing Montreux, where he recorded his final album with the band: “Made in Heaven”. To commemorate his stay, a bronze statue of Freddie Mercury has looked out from the promenade since 1996. His fans continue to adorn the monument with flowers every day.
