Coming Soon

Montreux Legends Club 2020



Montreux Jazz Festival, founded by Claude Nobs, has become a can’t miss event for over 250,000 music fans each summer on Lake Geneva in Montreux, Switzerland. All the greats have performed on the festival’s various stages, from Miles Davis to Ray Charles, through to David Bowie and Prince. Jazz music may have constituted the Festival’s historic roots, but other musical styles quickly found their place within the festival, sharing a common bond of musical curiosity and mutual enthusiasm. Distinguishing itself by its ambitious programming choices, for two weeks the Montreux Jazz Festival offers an ideal platform for musicians in an intimate setting.


Breakfast is served at the Fairmont Le Montreux Palace Restaurant from 7am-10am every morning and the hospitality desk is open to assist guests from 9am-5pm every day.
