The old house Viamala is the sad witness of an era in which Thusis flourished splendidly.


When in the second half of the 19th century it was increasingly considered healthy and chic to go to the Engadin for the cure, Thusis was an important stage location.


On the advice of the doctors, an acclimatization stay was made before the journey continued by stagecoach over the Julier. The guests from the wealthiest of circumstances, who often get used to the mountain air over several days or even weeks, stayed in one of the two luxury hotels: in the Hotel Post near the train station, which was later demolished, or in the Hotel Viamala, of which only one wing stands today.

10,000 overnight stays, the house counted among his best years. The ballroom, where lavish parties were celebrated, later served as a carpenter's workshop, other parts of the building became a robbery of the flames. And in the park, where guests used to lose themselves, there is now a large distributor. The future of the dilapidated building is uncertain.
