Holidays in the monument combines heritage preservation and tourism. Historically valuable construction tools are taken over, gently renovated and rented as holiday apartments. The model makes a double profit: the monuments get a new future and the holidaymakers experience a stay in an extraordinary building. The idea is realized by the foundation Ferien im Baudenkmal (FiB), which was founded in 2005 by the Swiss Homeland Security.
Parking: There is a covered parking directly by the house. The house is on a hillside and can be reached via a dirt road.

History & Information
Belwalder-Gitsch Hüs is located in the Binntal landscape park. There, where nature begins on the doorstep invites you to discover. In winter, the immediate area can also be explored with snowshoes. The Goms with the young Rhone also offers many beauties; whether a dinghy ride in the summer, walks in the main or in the side valleys or as a cross-country dorado in winter.
The upstairs apartment can accommodate up to 8 people. The living room and a bedroom are with double beds, the other room is equipped with a bunk bed. A screed room with two beds is available for bookings of 7 people in addition. The two apartments can be connected via an internal staircase.
The whole house can be rented: With a steep staircase, the apartment can be connected to the upper floor with the underlying.
The architecture office WALLISER ARCHITEKTEN in Brig has implemented the objectives in exemplary fashion together with the preservation of monuments. The aim was to preserve the old structure and the character of the house and to supplement it with new technologies. Thus, the house is heated again with floor and wall heating via a heat pump. Elements such as the old dreams, the well-worn floors, fire pits and Giltsteinöfen still bear witness to the long history of the house.
The southern extension was rebuilt in a contemporary way analogous to the design of the old building. In order to resume the concept of the historical shell wall, the new exterior wall was executed in pened exposed concrete. The synthesis of old and new is an example of success, which is also evident in the transition from the residential building to the southern extension.
The Gitsch Hüs is a monument that has been renovated with great respect for the existing substance. The tenant is aware of this and meets the object with care. Although technically state-of-the-art, certain functional details do not correspond to common standards today and harbor a potential source of danger. These circumstances are known to the tenant. The owner, e-domizil and the foundation Ferien im Baudenkmal disclaim all liability.
