Create an itinerary including Rochers-de-Naye
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.

  • Beautiful views over Lake Leman and the mountains. There’s a marmot reservation area where you can see the illustrious marmot. There’s also a mountain herb garden and a tiny Tibetan monument. Great...

  • Fantastic train ride from Montreux! I had never heard of this one, but it is STUNNING. 50 minutes of beautiful Swiss mountain scenery. The engineering of this route is impressive. It is super steep. Due to all the turns as well as riding on mountain ridges, you have panoramic views on both sides. The windows are very big and the seats comfortable. The train makes quite some noise, but given the steepness, it makes sense. At the top, you have approximately 1 hour if you take the next train down again. Just enough for some spectacular small hikes on the mountain ridge to take in views on Lac Leman in the west and the Alps in the east. Fortunately, you have to take the same way down again, so you can enjoy it all one more time. 10/10
  • What a great experience, the cog wheel train takes you from Montreux train station to the top of Rocher de Naye in 50 minutes for CHF 17.50 and leaves once every hour on plateforme 8. During the whole trip you wish you had more eyes to look everywhere at the same time, the view by a clear and sunny day is stunning and breath taking. Once on top, you can choose from a number of small walks or trek down towards Montreux. A must do trip in Switzerland but on a sunny day. Totally worth it ☀️🇨🇭🌲🌻
