Working my way further east on the shore of Lake Geneva, I arrived at Montreux. The town is quite small, and is known mainly for its castle, the Chateau Chillon. The town’s tourism guide claims that the Chillon is the most photographed castle in the world – a suspicious claim, but the absolutely stunning views with the castle, lake, and mountains certainly lend evidence towards it. The path from the town to the Chillon is named “the Quay of the Flowers,” and it seemed that the entire lakefront was in bloom with flashes of color. Montreux was also home to rock band Queen’s record label, to which the city dedicated a statue of Freddie Mercury on the dockside.
