The birthplace of Cäsar Ritz
Historians describe Niederwald as one of the most unspoiled and characterful places in the Goms. The mountain village owes its origins to the old Rotten Bridge, which was first mentioned in 1250. Here the old mule tracks coming from Ernen changed the side of the valley. Hotel king Caesar Ritz was born here in 1850. His monument, grave and birthplace can still be visited today. In addition to hospitality, art was also at home under the roofs of Niederwald with the painter Lorenz Justin Ritz (1796-1870). After an extensive renovation, the station building in Niederwald became the "Station Ritz". The new facilities include a bistro, a store with regional products, as well as the permanent exhibition on Caesar Ritz and the temporary exhibition with pictures by the draftsman, painter and sculptor Willi Dreesen.
