" CAUX expo" presents in 250 square metres a glimpse of the eventful history of the Caux-Palace, from the beginning of the 20th century to today.
This magnificent building, above Lake Geneva, was first a holiday place for the rich and famous. In 1946, it became a meeting place for people from all walks of life. "CAUX expo" is in the east wing of the former Caux-Palace, with a panoramic view over the lake. It contains documents and items of the Belle Époque, video clips, a computer, a space for relaxation and a souvenir and book shop.
You can see a video with archive footage dating from the silent film days of the Caux-Palace in its heyday in the 1920's, and of the volunteer work teams in 1946 transforming the building into a conference centre, along with further documents and objects.
