protection against demolition by telephone

In the 1960s, a hotelier from Flims wanted to buy the house in order to tear it down. He had inminded the buffet of 1667, richly decorated with friezes and inlays, which he wanted to install in his hotel. The then Filisurer mayor Jakob Schutz knew how to prevent the demolition. He called the head of the Justice and Police Department, who immediately placed the house under monument protection. The hotelier was upset and made the condition that he only buy the house if he was allowed to tear down the stable. This was allowed and so he could at least use the barn beams for the hotel construction in Flims.

1965, the architect of Senger from La Punt bought the house. He renovated it and offered it to Jacob Schutz for sale. He did not hesitate for long and bought the house he had saved. Since then, it has been owned by the Schutz family.

Gardening Protection Filisur

father Jakob Schutz senior came to Filisur in 1898 as a simple gardener to care for the better-off families. This was the laying of the foundation stone of today's gardening shelter, which also breeds the Engadine hanging cloves.

In audio Christian Schutz, one of today's company patrons, tells how the successful family business came into being.
