History and Stories

How the Walser came to Vorarlberg centuries ago and how the four-star Walliserhof Design Hotel in Brand came to be.

A great deal of courage, determination, faith in God and, above all, curiosity. This is what brought our ancestors, originally from Wallis in Switzerland, to Vorarlberg in the 14th century. There’s no doubting that the Walser were, and remain to this day, mountain people. The wind, weather and wild terrain couldn’t hold them back! The descendants of these brave people continue maintain the image of this mountain brotherhood. Your hosts, the Berthold-Meyer family, considers themselves and the entire team of Walliserhof staff to be such a brotherhood… pulling together, taking on challenges, trying new things with passion and zest and having enormous fun while doing so.
In 1966, your hosts decided to construct the Walliserhof Hotel. The Austrian state of Vorarlberg has long been a true hotspot for modern architecture, which remains down to earth and conforms to the natural materials and shapes in the surrounding area. The hugely inviting Walliserhof doesn’t stick out like a sore thumb, rather it slots harmoniously into the mountain landscape. The careful handling of energy and other resources is part of the modern hotel concept.

Stylish comfort, a harmonious combination of colours, well-lit rooms with a view and architecture and design according to “Vorarlberg Style Feng Shui” constitute the special holiday feel in the Walliserhof.
Simple, local materials, tastefully combined and arranged, ensure our rooms’ timeless character – just as the countryside around us does. The colours guarantee well-being and a happy mood. Each of our rooms is a truly individual living space. There’s a specially designed home from home for everyone, which, it must be said, is also a form of wellness…
