Montreux Jazz Festival, 2011. Swiss tips?


Platinum Member

Planning to be there this July. Would appreciate tips on where to stay, things to do, places to visit in Switzerland at that time of year, from our Swiss /European members.

Appreciate any advice on the subject very much, thank you.

PS- Leme know if any of y'all might be there too. ( Swiss Mathias , where are you? )

Well, this is a pretty expensive festival, you can get individual tickets, and some nights are probably booked already.

Also you can get a pass for two weeks in both halls, standing (no seat), and the cost is CHF 1500.- (about $ 1560.-)
Two weeks in the main hall only, with good seats, are more than CHF 4000.-

The whole area is pretty beautiful, try this link to get info on housing.

I don't plan to go this year, although I live pretty close.
