4.3
#1 of 7 in Nature in Canton of Vaud
Mountain Nature / Park
A mountain overlooking Lake Geneva, Rochers-de-Naye straddles the range separating the lake from the valley of the Sarine. Even at 2,042 m (6,699 ft) tall, the summit is easily reachable from Montreux. You can board a train to the summit station, which climbs as high as 1,968 m (6,457 ft), and then finish the ascent on foot. Or, start from Col de Jaman and complete the two- or three-hour hike to the peak. At the top, take time to look into a fenced-off marmot habitat to catch a glimpse of the mountain creatures.

Where to stay in Montreux

Kick back and enjoy the millionaire lifestyle in Montreux, where luxury and lavishness are always in style. Along the lakefront promenade you'll find a multitude of pricey four- and five-star hotels to retreat to in this Swiss Riviera vacation spot. A number of guesthouses and bed and breakfasts are also available for the more down-to-earth traveler. "Budget" isn't exactly in Montreux's vocabulary, however, for more affordable accommodations look southeast to the neighboring town of Vevey.
