Montreux-Vevey Tourism have launched a new cultural, interactive and geolocated tour through the Montreux Riviera region in Switzerland. The mobile app is called “In the footsteps of our famous visitors”, and features two regional routes which can be enjoyed on foot or by rented bike.
Visitors can choose from the two suggested routes (and can also rent an e-bike via the application) which will teach them more about guests such as Victor Hugo, Ernest Miller Hemingway, Charlie Chaplin and Lord Byron.
Each area of interest has a new bench where you can sit, learn more about the famous guest by reading his biography and listening to audio recordings while admiring the beauty of the landscape
Other guided tours are available in the area, including a Freddie Mercury themed tour with Peter Freestone, Freddie’s PA! If the Belle Epoque is more your period then another tour follows the favourite local places of the Empress of Austria during her many stays on the Swiss Riviera.
