Somewhere along the Swiss Riviera vaudoise in Switzerland near Montreux (which town is well known for its Music Festival) there is the city of Vevey. Wine history, art galleries and cultural spaces are at every step. November 2009 the Galerie d’Art Clément welcomes paintings by Franck Bouroullec. An other section of the gallery is dedicated to the australian aboriginal art.
These last years the Clement Gallery presented various artists among whom are Nicolas Imhof, Nancy Ross Nungarrayi, Peg Leg Tjampitjinpa, Corti, Monique Pella, Alfredo Echazarreta, Tingari, Gilbert Garcin, Minnie Pwerle and many more from France, Australia and all over the world.
Vevey is a unique place. The city of Charlie Chaplin. This is also where we may find a giant fork in the lake! Some 500m west of the centre you can’t miss the giant green building on the waterfront, Nestlé’s world HQ. To the east, Vevey merges imperceptibly with its neighbour, the colourful port village of La Tour-de-Peilz. Along the way, you’ll pass a photogenic statue of a bowler-hatted Chaplin twirling his cane amidst the roses on the Quai Perdonnet just east of Place du Marché, followed shortly after by the Alimentarium. Vevey is a city to discover!
Best hotels in town are probably Les Trois Couronnes in Vevey, the Hôtel du Lac or the Mirador Hotel. As the finest restaurants we may suggest the Auberge de l’Onde in St-Saphorin or the Auberge de la Veveyse in St-Légier not far from Vevey and Montreux, along the Swiss Riviera vaudoise
