Rochers-de-Naye, Montreux

4.5
#1 of 12 in Nature in Canton of Vaud
A mountain overlooking Lake Geneva, Rochers-de-Naye straddles the range separating the lake from the valley of the Sarine. Even at 2,042 m (6,699 ft) tall, the summit is easily reachable from Montreux. You can board a train to the summit station, which climbs as high as 1,968 m (6,457 ft), and then finish the ascent on foot. Or, start from Col de Jaman and complete the two- or three-hour hike to the peak. At the top, take time to look into a fenced-off marmot habitat to catch a glimpse of the mountain creatures. Put Rochers-de-Naye into our Montreux itinerary builder site to see other points of interest to visit during your vacation in Montreux.

  • The visit is as much about the view at the top as it is about the sometimes vertiginous rack train ride that leads to it. Obviously when the summit is in the clouds it's less interesting, so you have to find out before going up. But when it comes out you have a striking view of Lake Geneva and the surrounding landscape

  • My favorite spot around Montreux
  • To reach Rochers de Naye you can either take the train (35 SCF one way) or just hike up there, if you're brave. We took the train up and enjoyed the amazing scenery and then hiked our way down, the views are stunning.
