Nice tribute to him as he did a lot for Vevey.

Take time to visit his former home now a museum. Didn't have time but everyone we talked to said it was great.

The statue of Charlie at the borden of the Geneva lake with the impressive view on the surrounding mountains and the lake is an unique opportunity to selfies or memorable travel pictures. Take also a picture from the backside, gives you a terrific photo from statue, lake and mountains. Of course on a sunny day, better even afternoon with the... More

As you walk along the shore of Lake Geneva, in the park on Quai Perdonnet, you can look across to see the Alps, the lovely old buildings in the historic quarter and several monuments including a statue of Charlie Chaplin, who lived and was buried here. Take a nice picturesque stroll. It was a bit chilly in November by the... More

The statue is small and not that impressive. It's not a big deal to miss it. But the walk from the train station is really amazing. It can also be combined with the FORK, the alimentarium museum and a romantic walk.

This is one of these 'attractions' that if you miss it during your visit, it is not a big deal. Sorry to say, but it is a simple statue, and could be a fun stop in order to take a selfie with Chaplin, but nothing more than this. Go have a look if you are walking along the promenade (which... More

Simple statue, it does not take took much time. It is in the main street of the city, nice to visit.

But makes you smile. You'll find him on the lakes edge close to Grand Hotel Du Lac. Look for the giant silver fork in the lake and you'll find Charlie, standing on the grass on the shore, admiring the views of the mountains

Took some time out to visit this statue as I got to know that the maestro spent a number of years in this city. The statue marks a nice piece of tribute. Make sure you visit the museum(his former home).

Very whimsical statue of Charlie Chaplin who spent the last years of his life in Vevey. Hard to resist taking your picture with him....why not? Right along the lake near the Fork!
