Hotel Victoria is a stunning historic hotel wedding venue that’s about a 5-minute drive from the center of Montreux. Built in 1869, the hotel has been thoughtful and carefully renovated to include a variety of modern amenities while maintaining the over a century and a half of charm and character.

Route du Lac 27, 1071 Saint-Saphorin - CH
Chateau de Glerolles is a spectacular, historic castle with a history that dates back to the 12th century. Bumping right up against Lake Geneva, it’s another venue with spectacular waterfront views that just may take your breath away. Turn around to face the other direction, and you’ll see rolling hills of estate vineyards. This castle-turned-winery grows and produces its own fine wines, which can be tasted and served at your event. You can exchange vows outdoors beneath a romantic willow tree overlooking the lake. Then, make your way to your reception on a covered terrace or in The Knight’s Hall, a clean and modern event space ideal for hosting a joyful celebration.
A Montreux wedding soaks up every inch of the incredible views while offering impeccable service and an amazing experience for both you and your guests. It’s a destination that I think should absolutely be considered when planning an exhilarating wedding, whether you live abroad or just down the road.
