Montreux is a congress and tourist resort, famous for its festivals and renowned guests. With its 26,800 inhabitants, Montreux is the third largest town in the canton of Vaud.

Nestled between the lake, forests, mountain pastures and summits, Montreux enjoys a privileged geographical location, a microclimate that complements the luxuriant vegetation, bays lined with flowery quays, and a lake on which swans and boats evolve, including those of the CGN Belle Epoque fleet, which is unique in the world.
The Commune has a very diverse territory, covering almost 3,500 hectares. From the shores of the lake to the mountain tops, the altitude ranges from 372 m on the shores of Lake Geneva to almost 2,000 m in the Rochers-de-Naye region. Funiculars and trains link the plain to the mountains.
Montreux also has hotels with old-fashioned charm, terraces, shops, a casino and a conference centre with superb concert halls.


Diversified sports activities 
Sport has played an important role in the history of Montreux. Already at the beginning of the 20th century, with the development of tourism, new sports disciplines were introduced, major sports competitions were organised and several international and national sports federations were created. Thus, Montreux was the scene of the first European ice hockey championships in Les Avants (1910) and the first world bobsleigh championships in Caux (1930). 
Pursuing this strategy, the Commune of Montreux has recently hosted several major events. The organisation of these events is possible thanks to the strong involvement of the 70 sports associations, which include nearly 2,700 young people.
The infrastructure is numerous: a regional athletics stadium, five football pitches, a 50m indoor swimming pool, eleven gymnasiums, a multi-sports hall, tennis courts, an indoor skate park, a bowling alley, shooting ranges, not forgetting numerous open-access facilities, 150km of well-maintained and signposted footpaths and a ski area. The Commune offers countless possibilities for practising your favourite sport. In summer and winter, almost everything is possible in the municipality.

Created in 1995 to promote Geneva’s farm products, Opage – the French acronym for the Office for the Promotion of Agricultural Products from Geneva – is a foundation under civil law.

Its board is comprised of representatives of the canton, Agrigenève and the various agricultural sectors.
Opage’s structure and means evolved after the 2004 law on promoting agriculture was voted in and the 2009 signature of a quadrennial service contract with the canton.
In 2009, Opage moved to the new Maison du Terroir in Lully (Bernex), where among other activities it organizes courses on Geneva terroir products throughout the year.

Founded in 1909 by Hugo Reitzel in Aigle, the family business never stops reinventing itself and innovating in order to offer quality products in Switzerland! That's why, since 2017 in order to defend the local terroir, Reitzel has been working with Swiss farmers, who carefully grow and harvest the beloved cucurbits, for its supply of gherkins, cucumbers and other pickles.

In this way, the company remains the only one to offer jars of pickles and cucumbers made from ingredients of Swiss and local origin. But Reitzel's commitment doesn't stop there! We're constantly expanding our range of tasty new products, grown and produced entirely in Switzerland!

You'll find the delicious MADE IN AIGLE pickles during the fondue following this long and trying ordeal!


We're La Nébuleuse, a Romandie craft brewery founded by three childhood friends officially in 2014 - Arthur, Kouros and Jeremy. Based in Renens, we brew bold, fresh and perfectly balanced beers while staying true to our philosophy since 2014: Craft Beer, Swiss Made.


If balance is our signature, it's so that there's a Nebula accessible to everyone. And even for those who don't like beer or don't drink alcohol.


A little anecdote: 3 MONTHS... That's when we said to each other in a bar "We're going to set up our own brewery" and when we started brewing in Le Flon - Lausanne.


Nothing better than a delicious La Semeuse coffee for a convivial and energetic time during a relay race.

Founded in Chaux-de-Fonds in 1900 LA SEMEUSE is being particularly careful on preserving aroma and taste of its coffees. Located at 1000m high, the roaster enjoys ideal physical conditions allowing the use of a softer roasting temperature, less damaging for the coffee beans.

With the event sponsoring, LA SEMEUSE is happy to share a spirit of tradition and quality.

The word-of-mouth is undoubtedly the best mean to share this enthusiasm, that is why LA SEMEUSE reinforces this chain br supporting many events. By doing this, LA SAMEUSE values coffee as part of culture, sport and pleasure.
