An amazing alpine garden created in the natural alpine setting of Rochers de Naye. Entirely conceived and looked after by volunteers, it is a great achievement and is more extensive than you at first think when arriving along the narroe cliff top path.

Surprisingly many alpine plants clinging to the rocks of this mountain-top garden, free entrance and a very informative person there discussing the garden. Definitely worth a visit even if the so-called "marmot paradise" is a disgrace.

Took me around 15min to hike up (easy hike) to the garden, with some mini stops in between at photo spots. The garden is very well maintained with a huge variety of plants and flowers. Definitely worth the visit up.

Well worth the train trip and walk to view this lovely garden at the top of the Mountain. It cost 25 Swiss francs each for the COG railway trip up the mountain and free to visit the garden. Remember to use the Montreux Riviera pass...More

We visited this garden on Aug 29th. We had read that there are 3500 different species here. We did see quite a lot of lovely flowers and plants and all are labelled meticulously. We enjoyed the sight of the famous eidelweiss... with a nostalgic smile...More

Unlike most of the people on our train we did visit the garden and enjoyed what we saw. Clearly September is not the best month for flowers but we were not disappointed at having made the (small) effort to walk up to the garden
