Montreux Noël, from 19th November to 24th December 2021
Montreux’s famous Christmas market returns in 2021 with a big new feature, at the 2m2c between 26 November 2021 and 9 January 2022 (from 2 pm to 10 pm) : Light on Ice, an ice pathway through a brightly lit forest of enchantment. The little ones will be in their element, while the grown-ups can choose whether to accompany them or wait at the ice bar. Skate rental is included in the price of admission.
Another new feature is the Cabane des Bûcherons log cabin on the Place de la Gare, which will welcome visitors with its warming mulled wine. The perfect way to get in the mood as soon as you leave the train. The quayside stalls will of course be there as usual, as will Father Christmas, arriving every day on his magic flying sleigh. During this period you can also visit him by taking the cogwheel railway to his house at Rochers-de-Naye, at an altitude of 2,042 metres. www.montreuxnoel.com
