Montreux Jazz Cafe

Montreux Jazz Café

My annual visit to Montreux always yields surprises and this trip was no different. Sadly, this trip marked the end of Harry’s Bar which was undergoing a renovation to re-open as Funky Claude’s Bar while we were there.

Restaurant L'Olivier

Restaurant L’Olivier

We dined here on the recommendation of friends who live in the area (who also happen to appreciate good food) and it is one of their favorite local spots. We were staying in Montreux but getting to L’Olivier in La Tour-de-Peilz could not be easier.

United Boeing 767-400

United BusinessFirst Review

My annual visit to Montreux, Switzerland was via Zürich this trip and rather than connecting to a domestic flight (which would have actually made for a longer travel time) decided to take the train from Zürich to Vevey – which would be our base for three days before settling in at our usual location of Montreux for ten more days.
