Some nice narrow streets and a few good shops. A bit disappointing.

If you don't mind the walking you can visit the old city of Montreux and enjoy looking at very well preserved buildings also you will find very cute bistros that offer regional specialties especially viande des Grisons and Robluchon cheese.

Most tourists ignore the old town of Montreux because its flowered lakeside promenade is such a strong draw. But they are missing a lot! Instead of the modern, thriving, bustling tourist resort we find at the lakeside, the old town is full of old stone buildings, winding stairs that go on forever, and the locals who move much more slowly...
