The history of the Bewallerhof
The comfortably furnished and perfectly situated Bewallerhof has existed since the year 1413. Back then, however, it was called “Peywaldt”, which was the surname of the previous owner, The current name, “Bewaller” comes from the Romansh language and can be roughly translated as “ox pasture”.
By 1832, the farm had already been leased out and, in the same year, a Mr Lorenz Eisath purchased the Bewallerhof. From 1905, Alois Eisath ran the farm and, starting in 1952, Anton Eisath began operating the house as a guesthouse. The Bewaller Alpine inn was completely rebuilt, in the local Tyrolean style, in 1953 and featured all mod-cons, such as hot and cold running water, central heating – which was a luxury at the time – and new rooms and bathrooms. The hotel was then extended in 1958.
When Anton passed in 1978, Johann took the business on. His son, Philipp, has been running it since 2018 and, supported by his father and his girlfriend, Manuela, does so with an abundance of energy and new ideas.
