Rochers de Naye – high above the lake

The prominent rocks of Rochers-de-Naye above Montreux constitute one of the most beautiful vantage points in the region. At 2,045 meters above sea level the view sweeps across Lake Geneva and the surrounding Alps. Or into the burrows of marmots.

The rocks (les rochers) – towering 2042 meters above the town, are as much a part of Montreux as the Chillon Castle. Already back in 1892 the first small steam train made its way up to Rochers de Naye from Glion.

The deepest and highest points in Switzerland at a glance – in the south the Lago Maggiore, and to the west the Valais high Alps with Dufourspitze. All this at just a few minutes away from the lively town of Locarno.
