THE KURHAUS INVITES YOU

Meet the artists

The Val d’Hérens has always inspired artists and intellectuals of all kinds. Conducive to contemplation, the Grand Hotel & Kurhaus is no exception to the rule. It is found in Cosey’s drawings in his journey in search of Peter Pan. Its historic salon has hosted big names, among them Josephine Baker in the winter of 1968.

Whether they hide in the shelves of our Library or we discover them in our seasonal exhibition, these creators come to meet you within our walls.

GUIDE AND PAINTER

André Georges

A native of La Sage, André Georges is a mountaineer and mountain guide whose journey makes you dizzy. He climbed nine of the fourteen eight thousand meters of the planet. In the winter of 1985, he crossed 41 peaks, 33 of which exceeded 4,000m, in the company of mountaineer Ehrard Loretan. His passion for the mountains has led him today to wield the brush to make us discover through his eyes the majestic scenery of the region. Come and discover his works within the walls of the Grand Hotel & Kurhaus throughout the winter of 2022.

The exhibition is free and open to all, from 10:00 to 22:00.
