The walk through the Old Town will take you about 1 hour max, it is not a big area, however very nice walk with a fantastic view from the church on the top of the hill oveviewing the city centre, the lake, the Alps...charming quiet narrow streets contracting with the busy city centre. And btw the hill is as steep as it looks like. :-)

At the recommendation of the tourism office, we took the funicular to the middle stop (make sure you press the button for that stop...we did not know this so went all the way to top...which was also fine and then caught same funicular back down to stop). It is then a short walk on a path (for some reason had lots of tiny lizards so we walked fast) and you then come into the old town near a church.

We followed the route that the tourism office highlighted for us and there really was not much to see and not much there...at least from the route we took. Glad we didn't walk up the night before to find a place for dinner. Was not overly awed by the charm or architecture.

It was a nice walk though and a different vantage point of Montreux, probably took about 30 minutes at most to walk down. Treated ourselves to a refreshing movenpick ice cream on the lake promenade once we reached down.

The Old Town area is not as popular with tourists as the lakeside promenade, probably because it sits along the side and at the top of a rather steep hill. If you have time, however, do venture up that way! The old buildings are full of charm, the narrow streets just invite you to get lost in the maze... An absolutely lovely walk!

If you want to loose weight, and to behold some spectacular views(provided it does not rain, there is no fog, a.s.o) there is your chance. If it rains, snows, foggy, misty or any other current weather conditions in Montreux you still have the workout................
