The peaceful headland of Les Rochers-de-Naye towers over the Swiss Riviera at an altitude of 2042m. A popular day out for nature lovers and walkers, there are plenty of activities at the summit as well as simply lovely views. The scenic journey on the cog-wheel train is a joy in itself.
The view from the summit of Rochers-de-Naye is amazing. The panorama overlooks Lake Geneva and the Vaud, the Bernese mountains and you can even see as far as the French Alps.
Nestled between two rocky ridges, La Rambertia alpine garden was opened in 1896 and was named after the poet and nature lover Eugène Rambert. More than a thousand species of plants and flowers grow here, including the famous Edelweiss, one of Switzerland's national emblems. Open from June to mid-October; free of charge.
This is a permanent exhibition and wildlife park that is home to several species of marmot, the furry little creatures that inhabit the Swiss mountains. Free of charge.
There is a whole range of walking trails here - fill your lungs with pure mountain air as you walk along paths surrounded by lush greenery. In May, the experience is even more unique as the glorious narcissi fields come into bloom.
Restaurant Plein Roc is built into the cliff face and offers traditional cuisine with a breathtaking view from its magnificent panoramic terrace and huge picture windows. Restaurant Alpin is a self-service restaurant with reasonable prices and a children's play area.
