Montreux is famous in the world for two major event the town hosts: Montreux Jazz Festival and Montreux Christmas Market.
The latter is the best and biggest Christmas events in the Riviera Region of Switzerland. Although our town is one of the smallest in the region, our market is biggest. You know why? Cause it takes over almost the whole town.
For an entire month – from November 24 to December 24 2016 – the town turns into one huge, beautifully decorated, incredibly illuminated and fabulously tasty Christmas Festival.
This year, the venue features 160 chalets along the lakeside and the Grand-Rue. One of the most popular stands is the one selling glass Christmas tree decorations. What’s so fascinating about that? Well, the glass blower makes them right in front of you.
The atmosphere is absolutely wonderful. Stop by after a long hard day of lectures, presentations and exams, enjoy a glass (or two!) of hot red or white wine and do not forget to taste the delicious food of our market – especially the onion soup from one of the stands of the covered market.
Ho-ho-ho! Merry Christmas!
