Full description

On a private day trip departing from the Swiss metropolis of Geneva, AlpExcursion invites all the travellers to delve into an unusual discovery.

Driving an hour from Geneva in a comfortable car, we will reach the first point.

Welcome to Lausanne - lying on the shore of Lake Geneva allows the tourists to enjoy a lakefront promenade. The stroll will take you along the elegant neighbourhood known as Ouchy.

Also in Lausanne is located the famous Olympic Museum, filled with memorabilia from the games and athletes. Outside the museum is the studded garden with many sculptured statues related to sport.

The medieval Old Town of Lausanne offers an enjoyable wander through its car-free alleyways garnished with the purple tulips. One can continue through the district to the heart of the Old Town which is dominated by one of the most impressive pieces of early Gothic architecture – the Cathedral of Notre Dame of Lausanne.

After a pleasant exploration, the time will be to our next exciting purpose – the renowned Château de Chillon.

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

The waterside castle pridefully sits on a rocky island and interests the visitors worldwide with its must-see rooms which takes you back in time while uncovering the history of this fortress. Get lost of admiring around 300 items displayed inside which were discovered during the archaeological digs carried out at the castle from 1896 to 1903.

Afterwards, the internationally famous Montreux will greet you. No secret that the beautiful Montreux inspired many artists, writers and travellers like the legend Freddie Mercury - the singer of the rock band Queen. His famous saying is “If you want peace of mind, come to Montreux”. All his fans will take to the opportunity of capturing memorable photos in front of Freddie Mercury’s bronze statue which has decorated the lakeside promenade in memory of his presence in 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 re-mix of some of the Queen classics.

Worth to mention that Montreux Jazz Festival held annually in the summers, lasting for two weeks during July, the essential event offers legendary performances and close gathering between the artists and their fans.

The sufficiently memorable day will end with a private return to the initial meeting point in Geneva gifted by AlpExcursion.com.
