Located in the village of Vals situated in the high alps but not like any other mountain retreat. Vals is not like any other mountain retreat. Vals is like a tiny urban village, that exists on its own merits and by not abiding by the ever-changing trends of mass tourism. Vals is like a little dislocated “island” in the mountains.

Brücke 49 is your home away from home. Founded upon a life long passion for the good things in life, whether it be for business or pleasure, your stay will be a reflection hereof. Brücke 49 is not your typical hotel, you share the space with your fellow travellers and are free to use our amenities as if you were in your own home.
