Protection against demolition by phone

In the 1960s, a hotelier from Flims wanted to buy the house in order to demolish it. He had his sights set on the buffet of 1667, richly decorated with Friezes and inlays, which he wanted to install in his hotel. The then mayor of Filisur, Jakob Schutz, knew how to prevent the demolition. He called the head of the Department of Justice and Police, 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 demolish the stable. This was allowed and so he could at least use the stable beams for the hotel construction in Flims.

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

Gärtnerei Schutz Filisur

Father Jakob Schutz senior came to Filisur in 1898 as a simple gardener to take care of the gardens for the better-off families. This was the laying of the foundation stone of today's Schutz nursery, which also breeds the Engadine hanging carnations.

In the audio, Christian Schutz, one of today's company patrons, tells how the successful family business came into being. The audio file can be found at the back of the pictures.
