      I am interested in booking this apartment but I am worried that it is near the train station - areas that tend to be a bit dodgy!!! Is Montreux Rue de la Gare safe and clean???

      We are going to stop at Montreux only 2 hours so we can not visit Chillon Castle but we would like to see it at least far away and take some photos. Which is the best place to do it without going up? Is it possible to see it from any place at the quai?

      Bus service from Geneva airport to Montreux?

      by travelmad478 Online Now Sep 25, 2010 at 10:15 AM

      My Google skills appear to me failing me right now :-(

      Mr. travelmad478 needs to get from Geneva aiport to Montreux (specifically, the Fairmount hotel). He will be flying into GVA around 7 PM, then heading to Montreux. I know it's possible to do this trip by train, but is there a bus also? The train is on the pricey side for him, and the bus would be cheaper.

      He did find one bus service a few weeks ago but needs to check on the schedule, and now we can't find it again! I came up with the Gare-Routier de Geneve website, but I don't see Montreux listed as a destination (that website is not very user-friendly). Thanks for your help!

      I wonder if there is a stair to climb up to Glion, instead of going by train, as I remember I did 50 years ago and should like to repeat. In that time, when we arrived to Glion, I saw the biggest pan I ever saw, where there were cooking milk (?) to make cheese...

      1 day in Montreux

      by nicecharacter Online Now Jul 5, 2007 at 11:25 PM

      Dear friends,

      I've been wishing to take my family with me somewhere to nice country for such a long time, but there were just quick business trips. It's really so rare when we have a chance to have a good rest somewhere together. Now we have a chance to go to Switzerland for 5 days, spending 4 of them in Verbier and possibly one in Montreux. As to Verbier - the program is ok, but 1 day in Montreux is my own initiative. We'll be in 3 - me, my wife and 6 years old daughter. We just want to have a beutiful day there. Could someone recommend a good but not very expensive hotel (up to 250-300 CHF) and things to do and to see (we were thinking about Chillion, boat trip along the Lake, possibly going to Lousanne).
      I would be very obliget to you all for any piece of advice!
