Geschichte Hof Zuort

History since 1482

From time immemorial the place name Zuort has referred to a gently rising forest clearing at the back of the Val Sinestra. The estate, a small hamlet at 1711 meters, rises up suddenly and unexpectedly four kilometers above the village of Vnà, a bright clearing among the dark pines. Zuort was first documented as a fief belonging to the community of Sent in 1482; for centuries the alpine farm also served as a customs station. Its more recent history is closely tied to the Dutch conductor and composer Willem Mengelberg (1871–1951). He had a chalet built above the inn in 1911, and he and his friends, including Richard Strauss and the Prince of the Netherlands, spent their summer vacations here. In 1920, he acquired the estate with 13 hectares of land and hired a farmer from Sent as his tenant. With his help, a votive chapel, a one-of-a-kind place of worship in the Norwegian style with alpine wood carvings, was constructed. The chapel, which opened in 1928, was also intended as a reminder of Switzerland and the Netherlands being spared during Word War I. For half a century after Mengelberg’s death, a foundation which he had set up placed the Chasa Mengelberg as a vacation home at the disposal of Dutch musicians. In 2010, the complex was sold with the goal of preserving Zuort as an ensemble for future generations and to allow it to function as a sensibly managed collective property. The inn and the chalet as its annex are open year round. Eight guest rooms with historic furniture as well as period rooms with valuable ­wooden floors, paneling and ceilings from earlier centuries offer guests the atmosphere, vanished long since just about everywhere else, of an old Engadine mountain farmstead and a Belle-Époque chalet. Hof Zuort has been a member of Swiss Historic Hotels since 2012. (RF)
