Huberhaus

URLAUBSARCHITEKTUR | HOLIDAYARCHITECTURE as Association

Anyone who wishes to spend his holidays in a historic architectural monument can take a short trip back in time within the Huberhaus in the Upper Valais. The Huberhaus is a traditional alpine log house built in the 16th century. The old balconies, the soapstone stove in the living room and the creaking floors have all retained the traditional charm of an old timber house – despite the new kitchen and bathroom. People were shorter in those days: the ceiling height in the living room is just 1.88 meters. All the other rooms have normal room heights. The only source of heat is the wood-burning stove! The hut accommodates four people at 1,500 meters in the village of Eggen. It doesn’t get much cosier than this, even if occasionally one of the guests does have to duck a little.


The house is operated by “„Ferien im Baudenkmal“ (Holiday in the monument), a project of the Swiss Heritage Protection at the interface of tourism and historic preservation. On their website magnificasa.ch you find more houses to rent.
