Green Power Trail

Recharge your batteries on foot

The Green Power Trail between Ospizio Bernina and the Glacier Garden of Cavaglia lets you see how electricity is generated – and reveals why the RhB is closely linked with power production in the Bernina area.

What exactly is green power? And how is this energy from renewable sources produced? This informative trail between Ospizio Bernina and Cavaglia features twelve panels narrating the story of electricity in this region.

And as well as learning about ecological power generation, you will also discover fascinating facts about the diversity of nature around you and about the glacier mills at Cavaglia where, over the course of millennia, the pressure of the glacier water caused rotating stones to gouge their way into the rock forming wells up to 12-metres deep – and all of this 11,000 years ago!

This high-altitude hike runs alongside idyllic Lago Bianco, before winding its way through the Palü Gorge. Finally, enjoy a glass of Veltliner wine on the sun terrace at Alp Grüm – what better way to recharge your batteries?

유네스코 세계유산 알불라(Albula)/베르니나(Bernina) 노선

알불라(Albula)와 베르니나(Bernina)를 관통하는 노선은 건축 기술과 노선의 형상에 있어 최고의 걸작입니다. 풍경과 철도가 서로 화합을 이룹니다. 철도는 확장되는 반원형으로 섬세한 부대 구축물을 지나 험준한 협곡을 통과합니다. 란트바써 고가교(Landwasserviadukt), 베르귄(Bergün)과 프레다(Preda) 사이의 환상(環狀)터널, 혹은 브루지오 나선 고가교(Kreisviadukt Brusio)는 시간이 증명해준 철도 선구자입니다.

Cavaglia Glacier Garden

During the Ice Age some 11,000 years ago, the Palü Glacier formed a glacial hollow here. The glacier mills at Caviglia are ten metres deep and five metres wide. The ice has left behind a fascinating landscape full of natural sculptures, which can now be reached directly by rail. Experts will guide you round, providing fascinating details.
