Rochers-de-Naye (Les)

In one hour, you climb by rack railway train from the palm trees on the lake shore to the edelweiss flowering above. Modern or steam, the cog railways meander between lake, forests and high mountain pastures taking less than an hour to reach the summit of more than 2,000 m.

A real headland overlooking the town of Montreux, the Rochers-de-Naye ("Naye Rocks") provide the most spectacular view of Lake Geneva and its surrounding Alps. On a clear day, you'll see the Eiger, the Mont-Blanc massif and Geneva's famous waterspout.

The Rochers-de-Naye also offer numerous activities for groups or individuals, most notably the brand new "Marmot's Paradise" centre. Friendly and curious, families of marmots from Europe, Asia and the Americas can easily be spotted, particularly in the mornings and late afternoons. We have seven parks and grounds for our unique stars of attraction, and no entrance fee to come and see our special little residents!

Both interactive and recreational, come and enjoy the exhibition, film and games. The Centre also offers ways and means of seeing inside the burrows and earths through a system of portholes and cameras. You will be able to find out all there is to know about the world's 14 species of marmots. Entrance free.

A palette of colours and perfumes awaits you in La Rambertia, our Alpine Garden. You can make your own trip around the world as you examine nearly 1,000 varieties of Alpine plants and flowers. Entrance free.

A gourmet meal or a simple snack, we offer a panoramic restaurant with an uninterrupted, superb view, and a self-service area. Both restaurants welcome you to take a relaxing break in this sumptuous setting.

A breathtaking panorama awaits you at the Rochers-de-Naye, with a superb, majestic vista of Alpine splendour and Lac Léman (Lake Geneva).
