Clinging to the steep slopes at the edge of the forest, the Old Town seems lost on the heights. Yet it does not take more than ten minutes walking from the lakeside to this picturesque area. And what a view! At the corner of an alley or a shop, lake, mountains and forests create a landscape that never ceases to surprise.
Montreux Museum revives the rich history of Montreux and the Visinand House offers its exhibitions. As for the Montreux-Riviera Theatre (TMR), it offers, in the privacy of its 120 seats, a cheerful repertoire throughout the year.
Coming out of St. Vincent temple, the view is even more beautiful. Chillon Castle in Lavaux vineyards, the entire Upper Lake offers itself to the gaze.
Of course, typical bistros and hotels will satisfy large thirst and strong appetites. After admiring the many fountains flowing with source water of the village, why not enjoy a little Montreux wine on a terrace?
The Old City is also the departure of beautiful walks. The path of Chauderon Gorges whirls wildly through a refreshing forest, along the Bay of Montreux, Glion or until Les Avants.
