Set against the backdrop of the Alps, Montreux is a small town of natural beauty. There are various attractions that you can check out when you visit the city. In fact, my friend Tracey and I feel every traveler should visit this city at least once in their life. Tracey lives in Denver & runs MaidClan, a successful cleaning business. She likes to hike when she can in the Rockies and this place got her super excited to see and explore. In case this is your first visit to Montreux, take a look at the places you can visit.
Gorges Du Chauderon
When you wander through the old town of the city, make sure that you stop at Gorges du Chauderon. Baye de Montreux River flows to Lake Geneva through the chiseled gorge. I found marked trails that indicate path coming in and going out of the city. There are trails for exploring the woodsy enclave.
If you are visiting in winter, do not forget to visit Montreux Noel. You will notice that it transforms itself in order to prepare for the event. For the whole month, you will find the city to be decked up in order to celebrate. Caux nearby also transforms itself. It is a great portrayal of the Christmas village. This is something that I had never seen before.
Visiting Montreux and not visiting a vineyard would have been a mistake. Lavaux Vineyard has been as the world heritage site by UNESCO. There are trails that you can take in order to explore this vineyard on foot. Wander around and marvel at the natural beauty. Stop at the wine cellars to taste some of the best wines that it has to offer.
The mountains that surround the city have mesmerizing trails. However, this can be enjoyed if you are visiting during the spring. The Alps look beautiful during the springtime. There are some unique flowers that you will be able to check out. Do not forget to carry your camera to click some postcard-like pictures.
