• Vevey, view over lake
  • Overview

    Vevey, 7km east of Montreux, is noted for being Charlie Chaplin’s final home. The world headquarters of the food giant Nestlé were established here in 1867 and, eight years later, chocolatier Daniel Peter gifted the first ever chocolate bar to the world. Vevey exudes charm and chic with its diminutive but perfect old town.

    It offers fine dining and a clutch of unusual museums; The Alimentarium, dedicated solely to nutrition, shows how diet has changed through the ages. There’s a wonderful vegetable garden, and an eight metre high fork.

    Down on the waterfront there’s Charlie Chaplin’s statue and, for all other things Chaplin, including 30 wax figures, Chaplin's World is an interactive museum dedicated to the comedian’s life.

    Vevey is known for its Saturday folk markets where, from mid-July to end-August, traditional craftsmen work whilst visitors purchase a wine-glass and numerous refills to the accompaniment of brass bands and folk music.
