We really enjoyed the tour and the history surrounding the factory. Watching how the chocolate is made and sampling the fab chocolates. The factory has some great scenery all around it. You can purchase chocolate at discount prices. Everyone left very happy.

The original Y-shaped glass building was built in the Sixties by an avant-garde (at the time) Swiss architect and is a classified heritage site. It includes a very impressive helicoidal free-standing staircase and the view from the immense lobby is breath-taking. The other buildings somewhat spoil the rest but the site is well taken care of.

Was able to tour the facility, had lunch in the cafeteria and coffee on the outdoor patio overlooking Lake Geneva. This truly is the ultimate place to work. Nestle's focus on people and healthy living is top notch.

The name "Palais" does not exist. The HQ houses 1'500 employees not counting other offices situated in Vevey.

Modern architecture for the big headoffice of the big corporate group Nestlé. The complex of buildings is impressive, the interior efficient for workflow. However they are dominating the nice town of Vevey and it depends of personal taste if they integrate or not. Nice is the Food Museum not too far away, which served as headoffice of Nestlé in earlier... More

It is always interesting to see the global HQ of a brand you see in almost every nation on earth. The Nestle company is from vevey, so take a minute to walk up to the HQ and see where the decisions are made!

I'm so disappointed about the construction of such compound just facing the lake. What the worst to destroy a really nice natural area. No more beautiful panorama from Vevey neighborhood neither from the wineyards.
