The Marché de Noël à Montreux is the best Christmas market to visit in the Lac Léman region of Western Switzerland. This Weihnachtsmarkt is a popular day-trip destination from Genève, Lausanne, ski resorts in the Valais and France, as well as German-speaking parts of Switzerland including Bern.
The main market stalls and chalets of the Marché de Noël à Montreux are beautifully located on the quays of Lake Geneva. Further stalls are in Grand Rue and in the covered market. Santa’s workshop at Rochers-de-Naye Alpine peak above Montreux is a beautiful cog-wheel train trip for children and adults. A Christmas village is set up in Caux, a small town above Montreux that is also best reached by train.
