Château de Chillon and Montreux

We took an hour boat ride from Vevey along the shore line of Lake Geneva to Château de Chillon. Chillon is a castle that consists of several centuries of different construction. The first written record of the castle is around 1150. We spent some time climbing many stairs to different parts of the castle.

From Chillon, we walked 45 minutes along a beautiful path to Montreux. The path is lined with flowers along the water, and there are no cars. Montreaux has a famous jazz festival every year in July. I don’t know much about music but apparently, Queen was famous in Montreaux and even wrote a song about Montreaux.
