Lech can look back on a long settlement history. The name of the village alone indicates its Rhaeto-Romanic origins.
Around 1300, Walser colonists settled in the densely wooded Tannberg area and began clearing the steep mountain forests.
In this way they unconsciously created space for the seemingly endless ski slopes of today.
But it was above all the people who, with their cultural heritage and traditions, gave the small village on the Tannberg its special touch.
The village was shaped above all by the Walser architectural style.
The "Hûs Nr. 8 im Omesberg" goes back in its origin to this architectural style, which was first mentioned in a document in 1760.
The house can tell a lot about its inhabitants: After Sebastian Walch moved to Bings for economic reasons, his home went to Martin Walch's family in 1909.
His son Gotthard inherited his homeland and married Filomena Schuler here in 1921. Gotthard died in 1927 and left behind Filomena and 4 sons: Martin, Vinzenz, Wilhelm and Josef. Already in 1927 Filomena had established a general store in the house. Since that time the house has been inseparably linked with her work and her business sense is still on everyone's lips in Lech today.
The Walch family and their employees are looking forward to serving you in this traditional house and wish you a pleasant stay.
