Dive into the fascinating history of the Caux Palace, originally constructed between 1900 & 1902 as a magnificent Belle Epoque Grand Hotel with stunning views of the Riviera.
The two World Wars drove the Caux Palace to bankruptcy and was then requisitioned by the Swiss army to house Jewish refugees in 1944.
In 1946, the Caux Palace was bought by Swiss families to provide a place for “Moral Rearmament” (“Initiatives and Change”), a movement initiated by the American Frank Buchman to help rebuild Europe. From then on, delegations from Europe and from all over the world came to Caux to work for reconciliation.
