The towns of Lavaux and Montreaux are neighbors on the north shore of Lake Geneva, in western Switzerland.

The two towns provide a very different experience from much of the rest of Switzerland, as a result of their south-facing lakeshore location. They are also known for their own differences in traveler appeal:

1. Lavaux. This is a UNESCO World Heritage Site known for its vineyard terraces that date to the 11th century, when Benedictine and Cistercian monasteries controlled the area.

2. Montreaux. This town is most famous for its two week long music festival during the summer – one of the most significant music festivals in the world.

Overall Atmosphere: Combination
Combination Atmosphere destinations combine elements of both cultural and natural destinations, where this combination is itself essential to the travel experience. Common examples are Archaeological Sites (where culture is usually experienced outdoors), Scenic Local Markets (where indigenous cultures interact outdoors), Hotsprings and Vineyard Areas (where nature provides the raw materials but humans create the surroundings), and Unique Cultural Landscapes (where humans and nature interact in innovative ways, as in the elaborate rice terracing systems of Asia).

Combination Interests typically fall somewhere in the middle of the three types of primary interests in terms of
(a) how climate-dependent they are
(b) how accessible and physically demanding they are.
Featuring both cultural and natural attractions.
