We will be on Lake Geneva for two nights before heading to Mürren. After looking through the various passes, it looks like the Berner Oberland Regional pass will cover most of our travels, either fully or half fare, between Montreux-Mürren-Luzern. Since we will now leave from Montreux, and plan to spend our one and only full day in the region visiting Chateau de Chillon and taking a lake ferry...does it make more sense to stay in Montreux, or keep our plans to stay in Vevey? I know they are close...
Which would be the best place to stay? I've heard good things about both places, and Vevey seems quieter.I remember reading a few posts of recs to stay in Vevey, and I found an apartment that works. Learning about the pass coverage from Montreux-Gstaad and beyond has made me reconsider our lodging choices for simplicity. With this pass, it doesn't seem economical to also purchase the Half Fare Card, nor the Swiss Travel Pass. So the trip from Geneva Airport and other short trips will add up a bit. Also, I wonder if there are local passes available in Montreux that are not available to us in Vevey? (I asked - nope for Vevey.)
Thanks for your opinions!
