Let’s enjoy Montreux! – Explore Château de Chillon (free Sunday guided tour); relax with a picnic at Chillon Castle Beach (and a swim if you dare!). – Later we'll walk along the beautiful Lake Geneva to Montreux (or take the boat) to chill with drinks and free jazz concerts in the park!

Chillon Castle is located in Veytaux-Montreux on the shore of Lake Geneva on a rock. The moated castle is the most visited historical building in Switzerland! – Made famous worldwide by Jean-Jacques Rousseau's novel "Julie, or The New Heloise" and Lord Byron's poem "The Prisoner of Chillon", this fortress is a real gem from the past – Absolutely worth seeing!
