hkskyline's 2017 in Vevey, Switzerland

I picked Vevey as a base for the region thanks to its cheaper hotels. Similar to Lausanne and Montreux, it has a wonderful Lake Geneva setting with the Alps in the distance. The waterfront promenade is great for a sunset stroll or a morning jog.































For a great view of the city and the lake, head up the Mont-Pelerin funicular. With the Swiss Travel Pass, the ride is free! Since it rises through residential areas and vineyards, it operates beyond tourist hours into the late night.

Yes, it feels less posh and upscale than Montreux but the sights are only a short train ride away. Vevey was a great base for Lausanne, Lavaux vineyards, Montreux, and Chillon.

Nice. I love Switzerland's smaller, third-tier kinda cities - like Zug, Chur, Lugano, and so on. They're barely more than small towns by population, but feel more like a slice of a major metropolis in miniature. The mountain backdrops don't hurt either.
