Christmas in Montreux is an unforgettable experienc
e: colourful stalls line the lake-front chalet-style, each competing for your attention in a delightfully dizzying array of ornaments, handcrafts, jewellery, chocolate and more. Warm your fingers around a cup of vin chaud
as you stroll past over 150 booths as the snow dusts your face.
The market isn’t only Christmastime activity in Montreux: from late November onwards, you can enjoy a seasonal ferris wheel, a light show, elf village for children and visits from Santa in town. Visit Santa yourself by taking a short train ride to the top of Rochers-de-Naye
, where he stays in a grotto and gets visited by children. Lastly, be sure to stop by Chillion Castle
for a distinctly medieval twist on the holiday. They organise activities and festivities season-round!
