What people are saying about Montreux

Stunning castle!! Allow 2h30 to 3h to visit it. I advise you to take the audioguide, it allows you to guide and see all the rooms, with a view of Lake Geneva and the mountains. Wonderful ! The castle is also well preserved for the time. Easily accessible by bus from the center of Montreux (line 201) or by train (possible from Geneva...) There is also a café on site: open during the day only

Beyond imagination, this is an exceptional center to honor the life and brilliance of Charlie Chaplin. The museum, his home, is filled with original furniture, photographs, artifacts and rooms that made one feel Charlie and Oona were the guides. The studio recreates Chaplin as a performer, musician and director. The grounds are beautiful and the food at The Tramp was top rate.

Please make sure to print out the ticket before visiting Chaplin”s world because they need the printout . The experience was very good . It is a beautifully maintained mansion located in Vevey.

Everything is very quiet, you can use it without fear. I don't speak German or French and English is very bad, but I didn't have any problems.

Lovely castle to visit. This website makes buying your ticket easy.
