About The Hôtel Eden Palace au Lac Wedding Venue

Rue du Théâtre 11, 1820 Montreux, Switzerland

Hôtel Eden Palace au Lac is a lakefront beacon of European beauty and hospitality. It’s been welcoming esteemed guests since it first opened back in 1896. In its earlier years, the hotel underwent numerous ownership changes and small renovations to keep up with the demands for luxury accommodations and technological advances with electricity. Like most hotels and resorts in the area, World War I took an enormous toll on hotel funding and quickly dampened the tourist expansion of Montreux. Years later, during World War II, the Hôtel, as well as many others, struggled to keep their doors open with a lack of tourism.

After years of updates and a few more changes in ownership and management, Eden Palace au Lac was purchased by an English businessman named Gaston Jacques Murray. Murray’s love for the property is apparent still today in the extraordinary attention to detail and level of sophistication you’ll find throughout the hotel. Its 100 guest rooms offer luxury accommodations with views of the city or Lake Geneva and the Alps. It’s conveniently located less than an hour from Geneva airport and only five minutes from the Montreux train station, making it easy for out-of-town wedding guests to access. 

Details of the Grounds

Hôtel Eden Palace au Lac has several beautiful spaces that are sensational for hosting weddings. The Salon 1900 has lavish Belle Epoque-style decor, with rich coral-colored walls, magnificent archways, and elaborate molding. Walls of tall floor-to-ceiling windows bring in views of the Alps and Lake Geneva for an extra special touch. The spacious room can accommodate up to 150 guests, so you can celebrate with all of your favorite people. 

The Pergola Terrace is an expansive outdoor patio with views of the mountain and lake that is ideal for a ceremony or an outdoor cocktail party. Take in the fresh air surrounded by beautiful trees and gardens in a truly impressive setting. The hotel’s stunning Victorian architecture is poised in the background, adding a touch of historic beauty to the space as well. 

Photography Opportunities

The magnificent property of Hôtel Eden Palace au Lac is perfect for gorgeous portraits. The lake views are absolutely stunning, and the mountain peaks in the distance add undeniable Swiss character to every photo. Around the hotel, charming architectural features add a sense of elegant whimsy to your pictures.
