Full description

On a private day trip departing from the historical city of Bern, AlpExcursion invites all the travelers to dive into an unusual discovery. Discovering the Swiss Riviera, from Lausanne to Montreux will be an experience beyond expectations.

The first point takes about an hour to reach from Bern in a comfortable and luxurious car. Lausanne is a magical place. Lying on the shore of Lake Geneva, it allows the tourists to enjoy a lakefront promenade. While taking a walk here, you can discover the elegant neighborhood known as Ouchy.

The famous Olympic Museum is also located in Lausanne, filled with archives from the games and athletes. Many statues stand outside of the museum related to the games.

The Old Town of Lausanne offers an enjoyable walk through its car-free alleyways decorated with purple tulips. Continuing through the district to the heart of the Old Town, one can explore the Cathedral of Notre Dame of Lausanne, one of the most outstanding examples of early Gothic architecture.

The summer season will give the visitors the chance to opt for the leisurely cruise on Belle Époque steamboats which depart from Lausanne. An hour trip on Lake Geneva will take you directly to Chillon Castle.

Following a lovely exploration, we'll proceed to our next fascinating destination, the historical Château de Chillon.

The summer season has its advantages when visiting Lausanne. At this time of the year, the visitors have the chance to take a leisurely voyage on Belle Époque steamboats which depart from Lausanne. Chillon Castle is around an hour away by boat from Lake Geneva.

The waterside castle proudly sits on a rocky island and attracts visitors from all over the world with its must-see rooms that take you back in time while revealing the history of this fortress. Get lost admiring approximately 300 objects on show, which were uncovered during the castle's archaeological digs from 1896 to 1903.

Afterwards, the internationally famous Montreux will greet you. It is no secret that the beautiful Montreux inspired many artists, writers and singers like legendary Freddie Mercury - the singer of the rock band Queen. He once talked about Montreux “If you want peace of mind, come to Montreux”. If you are Mercury’s fan, you might want to take advantage of the opportunity to take unforgettable pictures in front of the bronze monument that has been placed along the lakeside promenade to commemorate his visit to Montreux.

Moreover, Queen the Studio Experience is located here where the band recorded seven albums at Mountain Studios in Montreux, including the final album Made in Heaven. The studio allows the visitors to create their own remix of some of the Queen classics.

If you are visiting Switzerland in mid summer, you will love to take part in the Montreux Jazz Festival that is held annually in the summers, lasting for two weeks during July. The fantastic event offers legendary performances and close gatherings between the artists and their fans.

Filled with lots of incredible memories, the private day trip by AlpExcursion will end in its initial meeting point in Bern.
