This Meetup is past

14 people went


Hey Everyone,

On December the 14th we will be paying a visit to the Medieval Enchantment [aka market] which is a part of the Montreux Noël. I am personally very much looking forward to this one. ;)

Please read the trip description below in detail, and if you have any questions you can contact me [Ahoo] (

To steal the description from the website:

"For its 7th edition, the Medieval Market at the Château de Chillon will take on a fairy-tale appearance. The fortress will house within its walls a magical universe that will be a dreamscape for children and adults alike!

Experience a return to days of yore, an unforgettable opportunity to go back in time and explore the history, the customs and the daily life of the Middle Ages illustrated by people in period costumes."

More information is available here on the website (

We will meet at 8:15 at main station, and take the IC 712 to Montreux at 8:32 on platform 15. [There will be one change at Lausanne]. There we will be taking the bus towards Villeneuve to the "Chillon" bus stop. We will arrive there some time around 11:20, and will have until 17:00 to explore the market. Afterwards we are most likely going to explore the city a bit more.

Please Note: There will be an entrance fee of CHF 15.

IMPORTANT: How this excursion works

Please understand, we are not tour leaders or experts. We are not offering you a service, and we are not responsible for absolutely anything. What we are, is simply a bunch of people who are interested in exploring, and would like to offer others with similar interest to join and have a nice time with us.

This is an exploration excursion. We will be walking around all day long, and there is no official end time. Anyone feeling tired at any point is absolutely welcome to head back to the train station.

As long as you are interested in continuing to walk with us, making sure that you still have the organizers in the view is your responsibility. If you'd like to make a short stop somewhere, please let us know and we will wait for you. [This very much does include picture stops.] If you'd like to make a long stop somewhere, feel free. We will move on but you you can rejoin the group later. If for any reason you would like to separate yourself from the group and re-join later, finding us again is your own responsibility. If you'd like to join the group at any point other than the official starting point, again finding the group is your own responsibility.

Please be on time, and have your train tickets ready before we need to board the train. Otherwise, the group will move on and you can try to join us later. Please make sure to bring yourself whatever you believe you might need. That includes water, food [please note, due to variety of reasons, we generally do not make restaurant stops], snacks, warm clothing, appropriate shoes, eye-wear and so on.

Please RSVP if you intend to join, and if later you decide to drop out please do change your RSVP.
