Day 2

Santa's Grotto on Rochers-de-Naye (2049m) awaits. The true Christmas experience begins with a journey by cogwheel train to the top for beautiful sweeping views. Through a tunnel clad in twinkling lights you enter Santa's grotto where children can have a little 1-1 time with Santa and receive a small gift. Afterwards enjoy the views across Lake Geneva or play in the snow. For a bite to eat stop at the middle station Haut-de-Caux in a typical Swiss restaurant.  Afternoon Christmas Market in Montreux.

Highlights: Rochers-de-Naye & Santa's Grotto

Day 3

The included Riviera Card offers several options besides the Christmas Market in Montreux. For some interactive family fun visit the Charlie Chaplin museum next to your hotel and try your hand at film making and finding out about this famous figure in cinematic history. Alternatively travel to Montreux (On Sundays possible by boat) and visit the famous, medieval Chillon castle. (At weekends in December a medieval Christmas market is set in its grounds.) For children Elves' Square at the Christmas Market, will win the vote.
