The Old Town, directly adjacent to the steep slopes at the edge of the forest, seems to be hidden at almost unattainable heights. Yet this quaint neighborhood is just ten minutes from the lakeside.
And what a view opens up to the visitor! At almost every turn, admiring viewers gaze upon a fresh panorama of lake, mountains and forests.
Of course, there are small bistros and typical restaurants where you can satisfy that hunger and thirst. Do enjoy a glass of Montreux wine while out on the terrace after you have admired the many fountains fed by spring water.
The Old Town is also the starting point for magnificent hikes. The trail to the wild Gorges du Chauderon leads along the Baye de Montreux River to Glion or Les Avants.
