You can start the virtual stroll at the place of your choice by selecting a key location from the list below.
Bridge over Veraye River
The small bridge over the Veraye River marks the border between Territet-Montreux et Veytaux, the lake promenade up to Villeneuve bears the name of Dr Chatelanat, a former mayor of Veytaux who has been in 1902 one of the founders of an organization devoted to "the protection of the sites and the beautification of the Montreux region".
Port du Clos de Chillon (1)
The tiny harbour of Clos de Chillon is one of the most charming spots of the lake promenade. During the summer season, a small refreshment bar invites you to take a short break. Further to the castle, the promenade will get narrower and climb gently along the railway line.

Quai Alfred-Chatelanat (1)
The beginning of Quai Alfred-Chatelanat raises fears of the worst. We follow an endless construction site, a rotten fruit of the regional real estate frenzy. Rest assured, further on the stroll becomes superb!
Quai Alfred-Chatelanat (2)
We now walk along the Clos de Chillon vineyard, which produces AOC Lavaux wines. The two plots of 12,000 m2 are planted with chasselas for the main grape, but also with gamaret, garanoir and merlot.
Quai Alfred-Chatelanat (3)
Now is the time to take a break at the tiny Clos de Chillon harbor, where you will find a nice refreshment bar during the summer.
Quai Alfred-Chatelanat (4)
We are at the end of the largest plot of the Clos de Chillon vineyard. The other, smaller plot is on the other side of the railroad tracks and we cannot see it from the lakeshore.
Quai Alfred-Chatelanat (5)
We now arrive at the gentle slope which goes up towards the castle. The promenade will become more and more narrow and pass in front of the small Veytaux train station.
Quai Alfred-Chatelanat (6)
The stairs and the underpass lead to Veytaux Train Station. Lake side: Montreux direction. Mountain side: Villeneuve direction. Good to know: this is a stop which is only served by omnibus trains.
Quai Alfred-Chatelanat (7)
The castle is close, but it will still remain hidden by the vegetation. Comfort yourself with the magnificent view of Montreux with Mont Pèlerin in the background!
Quai Alfred-Chatelanat (8)
A few steps lead down to Chillon Beach, where you will have a magnificent view of the castle.
Veytaux-Chillon Train Station
From this platform (direction Villeneuve), take the underpass and go to the left to go to the castle. From the other platform (direction Montreux), go down the stairs and go to the left.
