Starting point is the key junction of Samedan; finish is the town of Poschiavo. Despite the high-alpine terrain, the route - which for extensive sections is a single-track trail - is passable throughout.

The northern approach is characterised by long stretches with a very gentle gradient, interrupted by a couple of short, steep climbs. The view of the dazzling glaciers of the Bernina massif is just one of many highlights. From Pru dal Vent, above Alp Grüm, there is a magnificent view of the Lago di Poschiavo.

The piazza in Poschiavo has a wonderful, unmistakably Mediterranean, charm: the Italian border is close by.

Rhaetian Railway

Vor über 100 Jahren ging sie in Betrieb: die Berninalinie. 1910 wurde der direkte Zugbetrieb zwischen St. Moritz und Tirano aufgenommen. 61 Kilometer höchste Baukunst vor der Kulisse des höchsten Bündner Bergs. Dieser besondere Hochgenuss, der am gewaltigen Palü- und Morteratschgletscher vorbeiführt, der südliche Lebenslust und alpine Schönheit vereint, ist im Bernina Express tagtäglich erlebbar. Doch zuweilen stockt einem der Atem ob den exponierten Kurven und dem überwältigenden Bergpanorama.
