Relocation of the Chalet ‚Safari‘

Not only the owner of the ‘Safari’, Helene Fischer (see ‘Let’s Go Places Davos), was known for her journeys but also the chalet ‘Safari’ itself gained publicity when it went on its very own ‘trip’ at the beginning of the millennium. It was moved a few meters and turned by 45° southwards. We have compiled some impressions of this extraordinary voyage in a photo album; have a look:

only the cellar is left behind… then…
first stage completed
a new basement
a 45° right hand....
...rotation
sufficient tracks

Basement floor to be built
