what are some fun thigs to do/see in the summer around Lausanne/Montreux area

Me and the gf are planning to enjoy this summer. So far I am thinking we should go to Montreux, Swim, play volleyball and maybe some stand paddle, barbecue and then check out other outdoor swimming area. But I feel there is more, we are not in our thirties yet ... just incase if someone need to know our age group ...

We enjoy everything from the little thing so I am hoping maybe someone knows a thing or two .. more on how to make the most of this summer

then in July the famous Paleo music festival in Nyon (25 minutes drive from Lausanne)

The brand new Chaplin's World museum which has been set-up in the Vevey lakeside mansion he lived in

Chateau de Chillon between Montreux and Vevey
http://www.chillon.ch/en/


Relaxful day trip to France (Yvoire or Evian) on a CGN

Paragliding from the mountains above Vevey and landing by the lake
http://www.fly-xperience.com/en/ (this is one of a few schools there)


If you get a chance to drive a wee bit then this is certainly worth a visit, and it will keep you fit! Ballenberg Open Air Museum.

Any 1st of August party along La Côte


Are you active, like mountain sports? There's plenty more but this should get you started I hope

Montreux Jazz is July

Chaplins' World is a 2 hour visit and the mansion is certainly not lake side, it's about 1km away

A boat ride is fun, not much at Evian though

Panoramic railways, Les Avants, Golden Pass are good, funiculaire to Mont Peleran and walk down through the vines

Go to the Tourist offices or go on line, you'll find plenty !
