Chemin sans obstacles Maude Rion

Chemin sans obstacles

Spectacular views of Lac Léman are the hallmark of this varied level hike. From fashionable Montreux, the route leads past the famous Chateau Chillon to Villeneuve. Along this stretch the lake shore is often less than 10 metres from the trail.

Located between Lake Geneva and steep mountain slopes, Montreux has a mild climate and subtropical vegetation along its lakeside promenade. In July the whole town lives to the rhythm of the Montreux Jazz Festival. The concerts attract around 250,000 visitors over a period of 20 days.

Chateau Chillon stands on a rocky outcrop on the shores of Lake Geneva. The moated castle is the most visited historic building in Switzerland, an architectural gem set in the most beautiful surroundings imaginable; Lake Geneva and the mountains. The building is over 1000 years old and has inspired the fantasies of artists such as Rousseau, Hugo, Delacroix and Courbet.

Because of its position at the upper end of Lake Geneva, Villeneuve has retained its old, original character. The town became famous as a tourist destination for its gastronomic specialties and excellent wines. Seeing the sunset from Villeneuve is a unique experience. Sit on the pier next to Chateau Chillon in its picturesque setting and watch the sun go down.
