Montreux Tourism

Home to the world renowned jazz festival, Montreux should make your travel list for more than just that one reason. Montreux’s travel guide offers a lot more to its visitors, which makes it a popular and rather off-beat city to visit. Set aside your Fridays for the old city market to experience some local culture!

Live and breathe royalty when you visit the Chateau de Chillon….you might want to practice your favourite Queen (the English classic rock band) song, for when you pay homage to the Memorial Statue of the lead singer, Freddie Mercury. You don’t need a travel guide for Montreux, really; all you need to see, is everything!
