FiliTour No. 14: Haus Ambühl


Long separated, finally united    

The striking semi-detached house at the eastern entrance to the village was built by Michael Jost for his two sons Peter and Betrami in 1672. It impresses with its symmetrical gable façade and the mighty arched niche that encompasses the two Sulèr portals.

In semi-detached houses, strict attention was paid to the separation of households. This led to complicated passages into the stables in the basement. What is unusual is that the two separate Cuort entrances are located next to each other on the same side. However, the path to the stable of the left part of the house leads around the cuort of the right half of the house. This was also recorded in the land register. This made it difficult for the Ambühl family, who already owned the left part of the house, to expand after buying the right part of the house.

In the audio, Hanni Ambühl tells how it was possible to delete the rights of passage and rebuild the house according to her ideas. The audio file can be found at the back of the pictures.
