In order to experience the true nature of a place, you must indulge in what makes it specific, as well as international. In the case of the cozy Brücke 49 Bed & Breakfast in Vals, Switzerland, it’s the combination of sleek modern design and refreshing mountain living. Vals is known for its thermal baths designed by architect Peter Zumthor. In this inviting natural environment presenting a piece of unspoiled natural beauty, Brücke 49 showcases a eclectic mix of modern Scandinavian style adapted to the original details left behind by farmers who used to live here.
Books, magazines and newspaper await guests in a relaxing atmosphere. This contemporary chalet is adorned with natural Valser granite stone slab floors on the first floor and covered with a rough stone roof supported by heavy wooden beams. Photographed by Martin Guggisberg, the welcoming Swiss accommodation unit showcases works of Danish design icons like Arne Jacobsen, Werner Panton, Børge Mogensen, Hans Wegner and Finn Juhl, alongside porcelain from Royal Copenhagen or the handcrafted table from Københavns Møbelsnedkeri. Whether you choose to relax in one of the rooms or gather around the fireplace with a warm drink in your cup, this modern B&B will recalibrate you and guide your mind,body and soul towards a relaxing holiday.
