Montreux and its Festivals

Montreux: Schools and University

From an educational point of view, Montreux, as well as Lausanne, is the seat of institutes and hotel schools. The city is home to the famous école Glion, the Hotel Institute Montreux and also the Swiss Hotel Management School.

Montreux: Environment

Montreux enjoys an ideal location that combines utopian landscapes - with its famous lake and its unparalleled natural setting - with essential activities. It has a mild climate in summer - reaching 29 ° C - and, of course, there are the icy peaks of the Jura in winter. Montreux is an ideal land of contrasts in which to settle down.

Unlike Geneva, Montreux is a very affordable city, where the price per square metre averages about 7,000 CHF or € 6,600.

Montreux and its heritage

Although it welcomes the Jazz Festival and the Comedy Festival, Montreux is not only a town full of events. It also has a rich cultural heritage with castles, sculptures, and museums such as the Old Montreux, the Railway Museum and the National Museum of Broadcasting. Look out for the three-metre high statue of Freddie Mercury, a famous person who found Montreux to be an ideal place to live.
