Nice , quick, well organised ferry between Evian and Lausanne. The inside is warm, comfortable and clean. Bar is available and not too overpriced. The ticket (return) was a little expensive, but discounts are available for regular users.

For our first evening in Switzerland, we enjoyed the dinner cruise from Lausanne. Great way to relax after a long journey, soak up the beauty of the Lake, and enjoy a great seafood meal. The cruise exceeded all expectations on a beautful evening.

Less than 10min away from the Montreux train station, there is the Montreux ferry terminal. Even we didn't check the timetable, the ferry schedule seems to fit the train arrival very well. We had a roundtrip tour out of Montreux which took about 2 hours....More
