Montreux.

Montreux enjoys a protected position between the lake and the mountains, which ensures a mild and pleasant microclimate throughout the year. Visitors particularly enjoy the flower-lined quays, the view of the lake and the Alps, and the charming Belle Epoque architecture. These features have attracted a number of famous personalities, including Freddie Mercury.
