Along a windswept shore, atop a medieval wall, across an iconic bridge: here are 14 treks with postcard-perfect views—no hiking boots required.

Montreux to Chateau de Chillon, Switzerland

7 of 15

The Stroll: Follow in the footsteps of romantic scribe Lord Byron—who after a visit here penned his poem “The Prisoner of Chillon.” You’ll amble along the shores of Lake Geneva for approximately 2.5 miles, starting in the charming Montreux village and ending at the 800-year-old Chillon fortress. The path, lined with a kaleidoscope of flowers, has heavenly views of the Alps, while the turreted castle makes its own wine, Clos de Chillon.

When to Go: May and September are particularly lovely.
