Known today primarily as a painter and draftsman, the Neuchâtelois Jean-Pierre Schüpbach (1906-1992) earned his living as a graphic artist at Nestlé, where he designed chocolate boxes and posters for 45 years. Surprisingly (at least from today’s perspective) Nestlé didn’t care that he created and signed tourism, but also product posters for other clients as well – in this case for the Hôtel Bellevue in Glion, located on a cliff above Montreux. Even though it’s a magnificent Belle Epoque building: The panoramic view over Lake Geneva is even more magnificent.
In 1962, the hotel became the Glion Hospitality School, an institution specializing in hospitality and luxury management; as a tribute to the former Grand Hotel, the school calls its restaurant “The Bellevue”.
