The ceiling above the main stair case was bought from a Swiss dealer of antique wood pieces. Unfortunately, neither the dealer nor the restoration experts could exactly trace back the origin of the ceiling. According to the experts, it most likely origins from Southern Europe and it dates back from the late baroque period around 1780. It was painted with glue-bound distemper. When Chaletbau Matti bought the ceiling, it was in a very bad shape. Thereupon, it was restored by Swiss restoration experts in an extensive process. Since the opening of the Hotel The Alpina Gstaad, the ceiling, which consists of 32 single pieces, can be admired by the guests.
