The minute the Rhaetian Railway train reaches Alp Grüm, a magnificent view opens up towards the Valposchiavo valley. The waters of Lake Poschiavo glitter in the distance. The red train now makes the descent all the way to Poschiavo, which is noted for its good food and lively culture.

The southern alpine valley is popular with walkers, but it’s also a great place for simply strolling around and savouring regional specialities such as pizzoccheri and capunet. Explore the historic heart of Poschiavo, centred on its picturesque piazza, and discover aspects of the valley's history in one of the museums or the colourful "Spanish Quarter" built by returning emigrants. Enjoy the bountiful natural scenery of Lake Poschiavo before continuing on towards Tirano. At Brusio, the circular viaduct sets an incomparable architectural accent in the landscape of the valley; it also marks the end point of this wonderful excursion.

Tip: Le Prese is where you can board the motor launch Sassalbo and experience an unforgettable cruise on Lake Poschiavo. You'll find further information here.

Poschiavo

The picturesque village of Poschiavo is dominated by three towers: the Romanesque tower of the Catholic Church, the Baroque tower of the Reformed Church and the medieval tower of the town hall. The landlords of the typical Graubünden restaurants in the village take pride in their delicious Pizzoccheri. A glass of Veltliner will also stand you in good stead. Viva!

Lago di Poschiavo

Situated in Le Prese, this fairytale lake is a popular destination for walkers. A flat, 7km hiking trail leads around the lake. The lake was formed by a prehistoric landslide and its turquoise waters and pretty coves are truly spectacular.
