Do you go to Rochers de Naye for the view. No, you go there for to see these delightful creatures - the Marmot. From the time you enter Montreaux station to when you finally reach the summit you are constantly reminded of why you came here. They are cute. they are remarkable. They are well worth the trip!
A very easy place to access. Recommended for all those who loves to hike.
Amazing views, and can be enjoyed by novice hikers and children. Easy access to snacks and toilets. Loved it and would do it again. Magical place.
Fantastic day trip.... Highly recommended.
Stunning views 2000 meters above the sea level. Don’t miss this if you are in the Montreux area! The self service restaurant is by Swiss standards not pricy at all. But the cog railway trip up the mountain is a bit pricy though. If you use the Riviera card (the hotel will give you one for free) you get a 50 percent discount on the ride. Also, the train can be a bit crowded, so be in time for your departure.
