This city is the Beverly Hills, French Riviera, Champs Elysees, Park Avenue of Switzerland. Anybody who's anybody in Switzerland has a pad here. It's next to an amazing turquoise lake with palm trees.

Beautiful views from the slope to the lake when you catch a glimpse on the lake. Beautiful promenade also on the lakeside.

This is a very quaint Swiss village on the shores of Lake Geneva. They have a great Christmas Market that was beautiful but in day and night. The vendors offered a wide variety of wares and the food was also delicious.

We walked up from our hotel to the Old Town's winding roads, not particularly to look for anything but just to take in the architecture and churches and wonderful views. It's not incredibly steep but we spent an hour or so wandering up through the area and finding wonderful vantage points for pictures of the lake from height. Although whoever allowed that monstrous tower block to be built needs to take a long look at themselves, we found ourselves constantly trying to block it from our photos by strategically standing behind trees to avoid it.

Surprisingly quiet on a Saturday lunchtime, we were blessed with sunny weather and built up quite an appetite for our impending lunch. Avoid the crowds and give it a go..

Nearly reasonable underground parking, or a short 3walk from the train station, the international cuisine and excellent shopping are good for any budget. Montreux is historic but very trendy and lots of English speaking staff everywhere,
