Visit Santa Claus at Rochers de Naye! (Montreux Noël)

Nov 21, 2019 - Dec 24, 2019

Rochers de Naye by MOB GoldenPass

High above Lake Geneva is the peak of Rochers de Naye, a destination reachable by cogwheel train from Montreux.

This Winter Wonderland is not only a favorite among those looking for a refreshing getaway, but also among a bearded man and his helpers: Santa Claus! That's right: in his hut (which is conveniently accessible from the railway station), the old man welcomes children of all ages during the holidays.

Beyond the magic tunnel with its flashing lights, there is a small stage for the meet-and-greet and the picture taking. As we found out on our recent trip, Santa Claus speaks many different languages - from Russian to Japanese, English and French. There is an official photographer, but anyone is allowed to take their own pictures at no charge.

But Rochers de Naye offers plenty of activities and things to see during any day of the festive season. The kids can gather stamps on a scavenger hunt and they can even peek into Santa's bedroom. Meanwhile, the scenic panorama at 2042 meters above sea invites for memorable selfies.

Restaurant Le Coucou in Caux

On our way back to Montreux Noël, we hopped off the cogwheel train in Caux above Mntreux. Just footsteps from the station is Restaurant Le Coucou, a charming chalet serving local favorites. Try the cheese platter for some unique local fromage:
