Lausanne And Montreux On Lake Geneva

Paul chats with Francois Michel, Director of the Tourism office of Canton de Vaud. Palm trees are part of the micro-climate around Lake Geneva in this part of Switzerland and the miles of stone walls and vineyards are a World Heritage site. There is the world-famous Montreux Jazz Festival which attracts thousands of music lovers from around the world for 45 years. The legendary hotel school at Lausanne has produced some of the world’s finest hotel managers and the restaurant serves classic cuisine. And of course some of the finest watches in the world are produced in the Vallée de Joux. And of course there is the cheese, but you’ll have to listen to find out about that.
