Brücke 49 is a charming villa located by the river on the  “sunny side” of Vals. The villa was built in 1902 by Franz Schmid, a local Valser, according to plans made in Paris by another Valser whose name has been lost, but whom we know returned to the valley back in 1896.


In addition to its Parisian inspiration, the house differs from other Valser houses in another ways: the rooms are bigger, the ceilings are higher and the windows are larger. All the better to enjoy the amazing views.


The house took its address and name from its location; “the house on the left side of the Valser Rhein Bridge”.  Every room affords views of the village and the surrounding mountains.


After having been in the possession of the local Furger family for three generations, the house was bought by Ruth Kramer and Thomas Schacht in December 2010. Ruth and Thomas, a Swiss-Danish couple, moved to Vals in 2009 to start a life in the mountains.


In December 2011, they completely renovated Brücke 49 opened after a year of detailed planning and construction.
