The Louis Saugy Trail

Illustrated with superb paper cuttings and wonderful old postcards, the Louis Saugy Trail takes you on a journey, not only down the picturesque streets of Rougement, but also back through time.

Paper cutting originated in the Pays-d’Enhaut in the nineteenth century. The village postman in Rougemont, Louis Saugy (1871-1953) was also a talented draughtsman with a keen eye for telling details. Together with Hans-Jakob Hauswirth (1809-1871), Saugy pioneered the craft, developing all the techniques applied in it today. Available throughout the year, the 1.5 kilometre trail through Rougemont is punctuated by eighteen hoardings bearing either full-scale examples of Saugy’s craft or postcards dating back to 1900. Anyone who cares to could extend their exploration to the Museum of the Old Pays-d’Enhaut in Château-d’Oex, which posses a rich collection of the artist’s work: compositions characterized by their vivacity and humour and which constitute a veritable chronicle of the region.
