Vergänglichkeit und Beständigkeit [engl. Titel fehlt in Übersetzung]
Attentive observers can see all that is typical of Vals from various perspectives. Vals should be explored close up, from a distance and first and foremost, from above.
From the perspective of the mountains which rise on three sides, the villagescape can be seen, with its typical little stone roofs and the homogeneous effect associated with them. The roofing in Vals is characterised by history and nowadays this style is made compulsory by the building regulations. Valser stone is a building material which has existed in large quantities since time immemorial.
What is perceived from the bird's eye veiw as a nearly-natural, monochromatic stone structure, opens up, step by step, a colourful abundance of testimonials to the various building cultures in the valley for the hiker to see. An aesthetic success. Historically relevant. And then likewise, as can be seen everywhere in the mountain villages, the non-committal banality. What is so commonly stereotyped as a picturesque villagescape deserves to be discovered individually.
