The Swiss Riviera’s set to Mediterranean time, offering visitors a relaxing and unforgettable summer.
Go for a swim, sunbathe, enjoy a relaxing lakeside stroll, savour a local speciality on a terrace – or step out on one of a whole host of upland walks where you will be amazed by the extraordinary, sweeping views over Lake Geneva and the Alps.
As dusk falls, taste a local drink at the water’s edge – and make the most of the balmy summer evenings to discover emerging Swiss talents in music and comedy, performing in a range of venues in Montreux and Vevey. Tune in to the Dolce Riviera spirit!
For those who love swimming or simply chilling out – the Decks at Montreux (Quai Edouard-Jaccoud), Vevey (Quai Perdonnet), La Tour-de-Peilz (Quai Roussy) and in Lutry (east of port du Vieux-Stand) offer you outstanding access to the water – and views you will not forget in a hurry. Make the most of these exceptional waterside sites while the nearby bars and restaurants will be very happy to serve you refreshments.
Enjoy the best of today’s Swiss talent in music and comedy, with free shows and concerts all summer long in Montreux in the Fairmont Le Montreux Palace gardens, and In Vevey, on several evenings a week on the quaint pedestrian streets in the old town.
