Brücke 49 is far from what you might consider as Bed & Breakfast. It is an extraordinary stylish and tasteful retreat hosted in a contemporary-styled ancient chalet located the remote village of Vals, Eastern Switzerland. Swiss-Danish couple Ruth Kramer and Thomas Schacht had one ambition when opening their B&B in 2011 – that you’d feel Brücke 49 is your home away from home. They surely reached their goal – and beyond, as I’d even move there permanently.
“Brücke 49 offers an understated personalized retreat, which is far from ordinary, with a relaxed and easy-going atmosphere that makes you feel comfortable the moment you enter the house. No matter if you only have a short stay, a quite retreat to read, write or reflect. Or a longer stay, seeking the healthy boost from trekking or skiing in the beautiful mountains surrounding Vals. Whatever your reason for coming to Vals – Brücke 49 is the perfect base for you.
We hope you will enjoy the comfort and spirit of a house that is still going strong after sheltering its inhabitants for more than a 100 years. Carrying signs of a simple but happy life, which you will discover in many details and corners of the house. From the huge natural Valser granite stone slabs on the ground floor to the heavy wooden beams holding the rough stone roof and the tons of snow during the long winter.”
