VON LANGNAU NACH THUN von Frieden

From Langnau to Thun

In 1907, Emil Frieden moved the company from Langnau to Thun to larger premises where he successfully sold ‘real Swiss filigree work’ to tourists. One year later, he bought the house in Hauptgasse 37, a house that had a more than 500-year old foundation. The Hauptgasse is famous for its elevated sidewalks with shops for daily needs and basements that were used as stables for livestock in the 19th century.
