Vevey, a lakeside market

On the shore of Lake Geneva, Vevey is a town of images, culture and shopping. Home of the Nestlé headquarters and several museums, Vevey’s charm enticed Charlie Chaplin to spend the last 25 years of his life there.

Statue de Charlie Chaplin, Vevey

On the main square opposite Lake Geneva, the Vevey market is held by terroir and taste artisan. The old town offers countless shopping ideas, both in department stores and in small independent shops.

In 1867, pharmacist Henri Nestlé invented baby milk powder. This is why the headquarters of this famous multinational, with a staff of 283,000 people throughout the world, is in Vevey.

Founded by Nestlé, the Alimentarium – a food museum – tells the saga of the company and informs the public and food industry professionals. The Jenisch History Museum or the camera museum contains fascinating collections.

In 1952, Charlot, aka Charlie Chaplin (1889-1977) settled in Vevey. His statue was erected on the lakeside. A museum about his life and his work is in the process of being set up.
