Historic House Tours

(Available upon request)

Dive into the fascinating history of the Caux Palace, originally constructed between 1900 and 1902 as a magnificent Belle Epoque Grand Hotel with stunning views of the Montreux Riviera.

The two World Wars drove the Caux Palace to bankruptcy which was then requisitioned by the Swiss army to house Jewish refugees in 1944.

In 1946, the Caux Palace was bought by 100 Swiss families to provide a place for “Moral Re-Armament” (now known as Initiatives and Change), a movement initiated by the American Frank Buchman to help rebuild Europe. Since then, individuals and delegations from Europe and from all over the world have come to Caux to work for peace and reconciliation.

Come and discover many historic treasures as one of our guides gives you fascinating details about the building and its rich history.

The medieval-style Main Hall, the baroque-style theatre, and the room where the Maharaja of Baroda stayed are only a few highlights throughout the tour.

Tours last from 1 hour 30 minutes to 2 hour.
