What people say

"Fun little traditional resort town on the shore of Lake Geneva. Situated between the Swiss foothills hills and the lakeside it's best known for its mild climate and famous summer music festival: the Montreux Jazz Festival - if you're here in July check it out!"
"One of the most stunning places on the Lac Leman, this is an absolute must see in the region. Where Freddie Mercury lived, where Deep Purple wrote "Smoke on the water", home to the Montreux Jazz Festival and where a lot of history has been written. "

"Palm trees in Switzerland? In Montreux, all that and more is possible. Don't miss Chateau de Chillon while you're there-- it was the inspiration for the Little Mermaid's Castle! "
